Meta and Google Researchers Revolutionize Self-Supervised Learning with Automated Dataset Curation

Researchers from Meta AI, Google, INRIA, and Université Paris Saclay have introduced a groundbreaking technique for automatic dataset curation in self-supervised learning (SSL). This innovative method leverages embedding models and clustering algorithms to create large, diverse, and balanced datasets without manual annotation. The importance of balanced datasets in SSL, the challenges of manual curation, and the automatic curation process were highlighted. The researchers’ approach involves hierarchical clustering to rebalance data and improve model performance, as demonstrated through experiments on computer vision models and other applications. This breakthrough has significant implications for applied machine learning projects, offering a scalable and efficient solution for dataset preparation, especially in industries with limited curated data availability.

ElevenLabs Introduces AI-Powered Tool for Sound Effects Generation

ElevenLabs, a voice cloning startup, has launched a new tool enabling users to create sound effects through prompts. Users can input prompts like “waves crashing” or “birds chirping” to generate snippets of sounds. The tool also generates instrumental music clips up to 22 seconds long with prompts like guitar loops and jazz saxophone solos. Free users are offered 10,000 character generations per month, allowing them to create approximately 60 sound effects monthly. The tool utilizes Shutterstock’s audio library for training and prohibits the generation of sounds violating its content policies. While the space for AI-powered sound generation is competitive, ElevenLabs aims to provide a user-friendly and creative tool for various industries.
