WaveNetEQ is a machine learning model capable of replacing short sounds when your audio data gets lost along the way.
While video conferencing applications are experiencing a record download peak, Google decides to improve its Google Duo application through artificial intelligence. The goal of WaveNetEQ, the AI developed by Google, is to replace lost audio data when your connection is unstable.
WaveNetEQ: the AI that fills the gaps on Google Duo
It’s a high-level task that Google asks of this artificial intelligence, based on machine learning: fill in the blanks when your audio data gets lost along the way.. WaveNetEQ should replace your voice when it is altered by a bad Internet connection. An artificial noise that resembles human speech, generated by machine learning, will give the impression that you are still there..
This is the perfect time to launch such an innovation for Google Duo. Indeed, the quasi-global containment encourages us to go through such applications to keep a link with our friends and family. Google already has an app dedicated to professionals.. You robably know her, it’s called Hangouts Meet. Google Duo is an app that was born in 2016. At the time,Google wanted to compete with FaceTime en by offering its app on iOS. Today the app even has its web version..
A little technological gem
Today it seems that Google is coming back in force with its application aimed at individuals. The en company’s researchers estimate that 99% of calls suffer a loss of audio data .20% of them lose more than 3% and 10% lose more than 8%. That’s a lot of audio data to replace. To deal with this problem,Google makes the choice of artificial intelligence.
Usually, the concealment of data loss can quickly look robotic or repetitive. With WaveNetEQ’s solution, based on DeepMind’s neural network technology, Google believes it has found the right solution. This artificial intelligence was formed on data from more than 100 different people in 48 languages..
Obviously this artificial intelligence was designed to replace short sounds, not whole words. After 120 milliseconds of silence, artificial intelligence goes out.. In short, this is a gem of technology that should make your calls much more fluid when your connection is lacking. This technology is already available for Duo calls made on Pixel 4 smartphones.
