Pony Preservation Project (Thread 99)

No.37634877 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Welcome to the Pony Voice Preservation Project!
youtu.be/730zGRwbQuE

The Pony Preservation Project is a collaborative effort by /mlp/ to build and curate pony datasets for as many applications in AI as possible.

Technology has progressed such that a trained neural network can generate convincing voice clips for any person or character using clean audio recordings as a reference. As you can surely imagine, the ability to create audio in the voices of any pony you like has endless applications for pony content creation.

AI is incredibly versatile, basically anything that can be boiled down to a simple dataset can be used for training to create more of it. AI-generated images, fanfics, wAIfu chatbots and even animation are possible, and are being worked on here.

Any anon is free to join, and there are many active tasks that would suit any level of technical expertise. If you’re interested in helping out, take a look at the quick start guide linked below and ask in the thread for any further detail you need.

EQG and G5 are not welcome.

Episode 506: Appleoosa’s Most Wanted
Written by Dave Polsky

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2ovsay

Friends Forever #16 (Diamond Tiara & Silver Spoon) comes out this Wednesday (May 13)!

If Equestria will have sibling days, parental days are rather likely as well. And given their reactions to Sweetie Belle's cooking when dropping her off for the space of their trip, Rarity's parents are no stranger to enthusiastic morning meals prepared by their younger daughter. How well does it compare to Rarity at a young age? Did she use to make some slightly overdone eggs for a mother's day feast? Or perhaps she honed her craft much more finely at a younger age?

There's so many unseen memories of these ponies in their filly years. Maybe the Cutie Mark Crusaders could relate to their older siblings (and parents, grandparents, etc.) even more than they realize!

My Little Pony: The Manga - A Day in the Life of Equestria Vol. 3 Storytime

No.36725278 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
My Little Pony: The Manga - A Day in the Life of Equestria Vol. 3 is out today on digital storefronts.

My Little Pony: The Manga – A Day in the Life of Equestria Vol. 3
>Story & Art by: David Lumsdon & Shiei
>ELE-MANE-TERY, MY DEAR PONIES!
>All Fluttershy wanted was to hold a simple, fun springtime Scavenger Hunt for her friends. But nothing stays simple when Discord sticks his snout into it. Before the Mane 6 know it, they’re off on a bigger, much more challenging hunt—and if they don’t find these treasures in time, the stakes are much higher than a handful of trinkets.
>FINAL VOLUME

The previous volumes can be downloaded here:

If you enjoy this then please consider supporting the manga by buying a physical or digital copy yourself. I doubt it'll help us get any more with G4 ending, but it might look nice on a shelf or make a good gift at least.

>How did this Humanized thread get started? What happened to Fingerbang?

The Humanized thread was created when the various humanized threads (including Fingerbang) on /mlp/ decided to merge. The rest is history. Quite literally as of now.
