Visualizing TensorFlow Graphs in Jupyter Notebooks

Visualizing #TensorFlow Graphs in #Jupyter Notebooks  #dataviz #DataVisualization #Python

  • TensorFlow operations form a computation graph.
  • Visualizing the graph can help both in diagnosing issues with the computation itself, but also in understanding how certain operations in TensorFlow work and how are things put together.
  • We’ll take a look at a few different ways of visualizing TensorFlow graphs, and most importantly, show how to do it in a very simple and time-efficient way.
  • Now onto the specifics, we’ll take a look at the following visualization techniques:

    First, let us create a simple TensorFlow graph.

  • Regular operations such as creating a placeholder with tf.placeholder will create a node in the so called default graph.

Prerequisites: This article assumes you are familiar with the basics of Python, TensorFlow, and Jupyter notebooks. We won’t use any of the advanced TensorFlo…

AI can now replicate ANYONE’s voice in 60 seconds or less (don’t believe anything you hear from this day forward)

  • A Montreal-based company called Lyrebird has developed speech synthesis technology which can almost perfectly copy someone’s voice.
  • “We are able to learn a new voice with as little data because our model is able to capture similarities between the new voice and all the voices it already knows,” explains Alexandre de Brebisson, one of the Ph.D. students involved in the system’s development.
  • And what if someone else could deliver a speech for you using the technology to replicate your voice?
  • And there are many other ways in which someone could potentially “steal” another person’s voice and cause real damage to that person’s reputation.
  • The truth is, this type of technology dehumanizes us, since our voices are an integral part of what differentiates us from others.

A Montreal-based company called Lyrebird has developed speech synthesis technology which can almost perfectly copy someone’s voice. And it can do so with very little data, needing only one minute of audio to extract the DNA of a human voice. The name is well chosen, since the Australian lyrebird is famous for its ability to almost perfectly mimic sounds in its environment.

  • Frank paused, there were more clicks and whirs. “
  • Carlton was nodding as Frank spoke. “
  • You are commenting using your Facebook account.
  • Carlton was finding the conversation more and more disturbing, but, Frank was absolutely right.
  • Ms. Skirt did not write this code.”

When Carlton finally got home he and Frank were both bursting to tell the other about the day’s events. Carlton had to call a time-out to get the conversation into some sort of order, but Frank already knew most of what Carlton had to say because Biblio had told him. It was Carlton’s turn to…
