Researchers demonstrate algorithm that has learnt how to predict sound

Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have developed an algorithm that has learnt how to predict sound. In the future, researchers predict that future versions of similar algorithms could be used to automatically produce sound effects for movies and TV shows. Study’s lead author Andrew Owens said that such an algorithm that simulates sounds can unveil vital information about objects’ shapes and material types. In the study, the research team has used techniques from the field of ‘deep learning’. As per the researchers, deep learning techniques are useful as they allow computers to go through massive amounts of data to find patterns on their won. The first step for an algorithm to produce sounds is to give it sounds to study. The process continued for many…
