2016. AI boffins picked a hell of a year to train a neural net by making it watch the news

Lipreading software must think us humans are maniacs LipNet, the lipreading network developed by researchers at the University of Oxford and DeepMind, can now lipread from TV shows better than professional lipreaders. The first LipNet paper, which is currently under review for International Conference on Learning Representations – ICLR 2017, a machine learning conference, was criticised for using a limited dataset to test LipNet’s accuracy. The GRID corpus is made up of sentences that have a strict word order and make no sense on their own. The second paper released on arXiv, however, is a better indication of a machine’s superior lipreading abilities, as it tests the system on hours of speech movements from the speakers on the BBC News, Question Time, Breakfast and Newsnight UK TV shows.
