Google lets you 'talk to books' with its newest AI experiment

Even though you may not know the location of where your friend is standing, his or her voice has a certain pattern which you can immediately recognise irrespective of the noisy crowd around you. Just try controlling a smart speaker at your next house party when you want to play your music and you will know what we are talking about. Google just developed an easy way to isolate a single voice in a crowd.

Aiding smart speakers like the Google Home in their ability to recognize individual voices seems like another use case, but because this model is focused on video, it would likely work better with a speaker with a display, like Amazon's Echo Show. The team then created virtual "parties" that included background noise in order to train the AI to isolate those multiple voices into distinct audio tracks.

In the test clip from above, Google has managed to separate the voices of the two stand up comedians from the crowd (and each other) by recognising their faces and generating an audio track for that particular individual's speech.

Except when Rick et al got to that spot expecting to ambush Negan they heard his familiar whistle seemingly coming from all sides. Instead Rick and Michonne concocted a plan to let Negan rot in a cell as "evidence that we're making a civilization ".

As of right now, Google hasn't put the technology into its Google Home assistant yet.

"Intuitively, movements of a person's mouth, for example, should correlate with the sounds produced as that person is speaking, which in turn can help identify which parts of the audio correspond to that person", said researchers Inbar Mosseri and Oran Lang, writing in a blog post. The researchers behind the project wrote in a blog post; "Our method works on ordinary videos with a single audio track, and all that is required from the user is to select the face of the person in the video they want to hear, or to have such a person be selected algorithmically based on context". The experiment also means that newer technological features are coming soon to enhance user experience. This will boost up the voice of the person you are talking to, even if they are in a crowded room. In fact, Google is looking to explore opportunities to test this feature in its products such as Hangouts and Duo.

According to Engadget, it could also be misused. China could easily implement something like this on a mass scale, considering how it has been using facial recognition technology to compromise law-breakers in the country.
