Pony Preservation Project (Thread 13)

No.34611670 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
TwAIlight welcomes you to the Pony Voice Preservation Project!
https://clyp.it/hgmgwbgm

This project is the first part of the "Pony Preservation Project" dealing with the voice.
It's dedicated to save our beloved pony's voices by creating a neural network based Text To Speech for our favorite ponies.
Videos such as https://youtu.be/GuJKTodX1FA. or https://youtu.be/DWK_iYBl8cA have proven that we now have the technology to generate convincing voices using machine learning algorithms "trained" on nothing but clean audio clips.
With roughly 10 seasons (8 soon to be 9 seasons and 5 movies) worth of voice lines available, we have more than enough material to apply this tech for our deviant needs.

Any anon is free to join, and many are already contributing. Just read the guide to learn how you can help bring on the wAIfu revolution. Whatever your technical level, you can help.
