Meta open sources framework for generating sounds and music

Posted by in categories: media & arts, robotics/AI, transportation

The day is fast approaching when generative AI won’t only write and create images in a convincingly human-like style, but compose music and sounds that pass for a professional’s work, too. This morning, Meta announced AudioCraft, a framework to generate what it describes as “high-quality,” “realistic” audio and music from short text descriptions, or prompts. It’s not Meta’s first foray into audio generation — the tech giant open sourced an AI-powered music generator, MusicGen, in June — but Meta claims that it’s made advances that vastly improve the quality of AI-generated sounds, such as dogs barking, cars honking and footsteps on a wooden floor.

In a blog post shared with TechCrunch, Meta… More.

🌎 SIMULATED Journey from EARTH to the END of the UNIVERSE ✨

Posted by in categories: media & arts, physics, robotics/AI, space

journey breaks several laws of physics in order to reach the known limit of the universe, using a spacecraft capable of travelling at any speed.
distance and speed are approximate, giving us an idea of how fast the spacecraft has to travel to move through the vast expanses of the universe.
the way, an AI will explain some important elements of the journey, to give us a more complete picture of what we are seeing.

Google’s new AI model generates music from your brain activity. Listen for yourself

Posted by in categories: media & arts, robotics/AI

The music you listen to creates specific brain patterns that AI can use to generate that same sound. Here’s how.

Simple Brain Hack Could Boost Learning and Improve Mental Health

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, computing, education, media & arts, neuroscience

Adopting a curious mindset over a high-pressure one can enhance memory, according to recent research from Duke University. The study showed that participants who envisioned themselves as a thief planning a heist in a virtual art museum demonstrated better recall of the paintings they encountered than those who imagined executing the heist on the spot while playing the same computer game.

The slight variation in motivations — the urgent need to achieve immediate goals versus the curious exploration for future objectives — could have significant implications in real-life scenarios. These include incentivizing people to receive a vaccine, prompting action against climate change, and potentially providing new treatments for psychiatric conditions.

The findings were recently published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

James Cameron Is More Worried About an AI Apocalypse Than an AI Movie Script for Now

Posted by in categories: media & arts, military, robotics/AI

We’re not at the scope of usage Cameron is anxious about yet, but we don’t have to imagine what AI’s role in the military could look like hypothetically—it’s already starting to happen. The U.S. Department of Defense is already investigating moves to create an archive of military data to use as part of what it sees as an escalating digital arms race with other nations, and the eventual weaponization of such technology. Not that Cameron himself hasn’t already thought about that extensively in his own filmmaking career already, of course.

“I warned you guys in 1984 and you didn’t listen,” the director not-so-jokingly added. But you know, hopefully we get protections for actors, writers, directors, and other creatives against generative AI replacements before we have to worry too much about someone making Skynet. Hopefully.

AI-Powered NPCs: A Game-Changing FREE Demo

Posted by in categories: media & arts, robotics/AI, virtual reality

Once this is added to a VR open world, like low-fi, I may never come out!

The Unreal Engine combined with the power of OpenAI’s GPT has opened up a lot of possibilities for the future of video games. This demo created by Replica Studios allows us to directly interact with NPCs. It’s surprisingly good, and gives some insight into where things might be heading.
