[Mentioned in Session] Interesting Voice Cloning and Speech Synthesis Papers

I mentioned some interesting voice cloning/synthesis research papers/demos during the session.

I struggled to find the paper initially, so here are some scribblings from me meandering through notes and searches to get to the paper I mentioned where UK accents appear to be close to each other (since generated voice based on a Scottish accent produced some English accented results).

This one has some similarities, but is definitely not the one I’m thinking of:

Looking through some of the papers, there’s a chance I’ve conflated the “distance” between generated voices with another paper, but hopefully I can find the one I’m thinking of as it was quite impressive & contained multiple accents.

Found it!
It’s from the Tacotron team at Google:
