What are the new moves for AI synthetic anchors? The secret video tells you!
From sitting to standing, how has the AI synthetic host evolved?
According to Qi Huijie, the project leader, AI synthetic anchor has made breakthroughs in many important technologies through technological breakthroughs. Named "New Xiao Hao", the standing AI synthetic anchor is still based on Qiu Hao, the anchor of Xinhua News Agency, and has made great improvements and breakthroughs in the two main engines of sound and image. In terms of sound, we use the leading waveform modeling technology to generate audio, which greatly improves the expressiveness and authenticity of the synthesized audio and makes the sound more emotional. In terms of images, through model optimization and the use of multi-style data, more realistic expression synthesis, proper matching of body movements and semantics, and more natural lip movements are achieved.
