Targeted Listening πŸ‘‚

Google recently demoed an AI model that can focus in on one voice in a noisy environment. Might sound easy because we do this pretty naturally, but machines aren’t like us. Mics pick up everything in their range without distinguishing, kind of like how a picture might look different than what you saw with your eyes. πŸ‘€

This is yet another AI advance that is, as Android Police said, cool and terrifying. On the cool side, this could make digital assistants really useful. And who knows what other beneficial uses will be dreamed up. On the terrifying side, Big Brother could be listening as well as watching. πŸ•΄
