Google AI Introduces Lyra: A Novel Low-Bitrate Speech Codec For Speech Compression

  • by

Researchers at Google AI recently introduced Lyra, a high-quality, very low-bitrate speech codec that makes voice communication available even on the slowest networks. The researchers have applied traditional codec techniques with machine learning (ML) models trained on thousands of hours of data to create a unique method for compressing and transmitting voice signals.

Pretrain Transformers Models in PyTorch Using Hugging Face Transformers

  • by

This notebook is used to pretrain transformers models using Hugging Face on your own custom dataset. What do I mean by pretrain transformers? The definition of pretraining is to train in advance. That is exactly what I mean! Train a transformer model to use it as a pretrained transformers model which can be used to fine-tune it on a specific task! I also use the term fine-tune where I mean to continue training a pretrained model on a… Read More »Pretrain Transformers Models in PyTorch Using Hugging Face Transformers
