Amitabh Bachchan's voice in Google Maps

Hello! I have been talking to Amitabh Bachchan since Kaun Banega Crorepati, your friend is sitting in front of me … During KBC, a contestant uses the 'Phone a Friend' lifeline (although now that lifeline has changed.) And host Amitabh Bachchan voice calls a friend. The person at the opposite end was jumping for joy when they joined.

If we pick up the phone and hear the familiar voice of the great hero of the century at the opposite end, it is natural that anyone's reaction should be the same.

Seeing that, sometimes you also get the thought in your mind that what if we also get a chance to talk to Amitji in this way? Such an opportunity may be available to everyone now, but we must be careful!

Now when we are driving a car, taking advantage of navigation using Google Maps in our smart phone or in the car's infotainment system in Android or Apple phone, it may happen that Amitabh says to us, "Hello! I am speaking Amitabh Bachchan from Google Maps, please turn left after 200 meters!

Amitabh Bachchan's voice in Google Maps

Amitabh Bachchan's voice in Google Maps

According to the latest news, Google has contacted Amitabh Bachchan and requested him to become the voice of Google Maps in India.At the time of writing, of course, Amitabh Bachchan has not yet signed any contract for this, but the question now is only his consent.

The news is really exciting, but the technology behind it is even more exciting. When it comes to copyfilms or shows like 'KBC', it is obvious that Amitabh Bachchan himself has to go to the studio and shoot for every scene or episode.

Amitabh Bachchan has also sung songs in many films and given voiceover in films like 'Laga'. This is also why he would have gone to the studio and recorded the whole song or given his voice for the whole narration.

But giving voice in Google Maps is a completely different matter. Millions of people are taking advantage of the day-night navigation feature on Google Maps.

Obviously, Amitabh Bachchan does not sit in the studio for twenty-four hours to see which way our car is moving on the maps. So the question is how can Amitji give live guidance to millions of people at once through Google Maps?

In a service like Virtual Voice Assistant, one man can now talk to millions of people. Know how.

Voice synthesis or Speech synthesis

Around the world, more than a billion people rely on Google Maps every month while driving or at other times to find what they want on a map, with about 80 percent of them relying on the help of a voice assistant while driving.

When people go somewhere, they search for the location where they want to go in Google Maps in their Android or Apple smartphone.

Then turn on the navigation option for it and then enable Voice Assistant. Then, as their car moves forward, Google Maps gives them verbal guidance on when to turn. The driver does not need to look away from the road.

This navigation is so accurate that if you have to proceed downhill, not on the bridge according to your destination, but on the left, the navigation system will notice that at 100-200 meters then a 'fork' will come, you will have to go down to the left. Just have to move on.

Any sound we hear today in Google Maps or any other virtual assistant service like it is a computer generated voice (and yet it can mimic Amitabh Bachchan's roaring voice!)

Thus a general term such as 'voice synthesis' or 'speech synthesis' is used for technology that produces a human-like sound from a machine.

You may recall that in the late 1970's, toys came to help little boys learn English, with machine-generated pronunciation being heard at the click of an A, B, C, D, etc. button. This sounded like the sound of a machine.

Then the machine-generated voice and the man's recorded voice began to confuse. When we call a mobile bill or electricity company to find out our bill, we are still 'talking' to an 'IVR' (Interactive Voice Response system).

In it, "Your zodiac sign is left …" so many words are heard in the form recorded in a person's voice. We can clearly see the difference between these two sounds.

Ever evolving technology

We have ‘IVR’ going beyond this stage, but on the other hand the technology of voice synthesis for virtual assistants has come a long way. Companies doing research in this field have a growing database of voice recordings.

New computer algorithms were developed. As a result, it became possible to hear the voices of celebrities in virtual assistants. Karen Jacobsen, an Australian artist, became known as 'GPS Girl' because of her voice use in GPS, Siri and Google Maps. The voice assistant service in Google Maps gives users a fun surprise by using the voices of various celebrities for a short period of time under the name 'Cameo Voice'.

For this, celebrities often record a number of words that are to be used frequently and then relate them to each other as needed. In the early stages of this technology, it was possible to distinguish the tone, ascent and descent, etc., when the voice of a celebrity was heard at different times, when it was heard in front of a new one.

Now this technology has gone even further and it has started using deep learning and artificial intelligence. Google has made significant strides in this area under a project called Wavenet. In China, a guy company like Google has also come a long way in this direction with the 'Deep Voice' project. Is researching in this direction with the project.

In the Weavernt project, many of the words recorded are flipped into ‘Neural Networks’. It analyzes sixteen thousand sound samples every second, analyzing the difference in tone between words spoken one word after another.

Each sample is compared to its previous sample. It is also compared with thousands of previously obtained samples. As a result the computer system can understand the tone of different words when a person speaks a sentence instinctively.

Thus, when a new whole sentence is spoken by combining different recorded words, the tone of each word is also matched, so that the spoken sentence does not look like a machine but instinctive. GTA SAN ANDREAS apk + obb download free in android device.

It is very difficult for us to understand this technology but the end result is that Amitabh Bachchan will record 'some days spent in studio instead of Gujarat' words frequently used in navigation of Google Maps, then the recording will be used by Google's system in such a way that we It's as if Amitji is sitting in the seat next to us and telling us how far to turn left or right - we just don't want to jump out of the seat again and again.

How do man and machine communicate?

The machine understands our talk and then answers - there are some knots in such a simple thing.

Voice navigation in maps is largely one-sided, but in maps or other apps we can also have a two-way conversation with the system.

Thus there are two aspects of computer and human communication. Its equation has speech regression on one side and voice synthesis on the other.

That is, on the one hand, the intuitive language we speak should be explained to the computer and on the other hand, when the computer speaks by converting the data available to it into sound, its sound should not sound like a machine but like a human being. This issue is not only of sound, but also of understanding!

‘Natural language processing’ is one of the most fascinating divisions of data science. Researchers have gone so far as to say that there can now be a lot of debate and confrontation between the computer system and man.

Of course, there are also many challenges. For one, the language itself is incredibly complex. Those who have experience in translation know that when a sentence written in English is translated into Hindi or Gujarati, the order of words in it is almost reversed.

Different languages have different characteristics. If the same word has multiple meanings. In addition to the original language, it has different accents and styles. When a person speaks the same word differently and with emphasis on different words, its meaning changes.

To take a simple example, suppose you say this simple sentence to another person: "This pen is yours." If you emphasize "this" in this sentence, the person in front will understand that you are talking about a certain pen. No other pen. Emphasis on "pen" means that it is a matter of pen and nothing else. "Yours" or "is". The meaning of a sentence changes according to the way it is spoken.Download GTA VICE CITY free for android.
