WaveNet and Text-To-Speech (TTS) – machines can speak

WaveNet and Text-To-Speech (TTS) machines can speak m

The progress of this last year regarding Deep Learning is truly exceptional. Many steps forward have been made in many fields of technology thanks to neural networks and among these there is the synthetic voice, or rather the Text-To-Speech (TTS) that is, that series of technologies able to simulate the human way of speaking by reading a text. Among the models realized, therefore, there is WaveNet, a highly innovative model that has revolutionized the way of doing Text-To-Speech making them jump really forward.

Lowspec – A 3D printed spectroscope

LOWSCOPE - a 3D printed spectroscope m

There are many 3D printing projects available on the web, but there is one in particular that really impressed me. The project we will discuss today allows you to print all the structural components of a spectroscope at home and then adapt the lenses and the mechanical parts (for the movement mechanisms) obtaining an instrument to use at home, perhaps connecting it to a telescope.
