Lithuanian is a Baltic language spoken primarily in Lithuania. It is one of the oldest living Indo-European languages and has preserved many archaic features. Lithuanian has a complex grammar with noun declensions, verb conjugations, and grammatical genders. It uses the Latin alphabet and has a phonetic system that includes nasal vowels and distinctive pitch accents.
The CV dataset is a speech dataset that is specifically designed for computer vision tasks, such as lip-reading or audio-visual analysis. It contains audio samples synchronized with visual data.
VITS, also known as VQ-VAE-Transformer, is an advanced technique used for training audio models. It combines different components to create powerful models that can understand and generate human-like speech. VITS works by breaking down audio into tiny pieces called vectors, which are like puzzle pieces that represent different parts of the sound. These vectors are then put together using a special algorithm that helps the model learn patterns and understand the structure of the audio. It’s similar to how we put together jigsaw puzzles to form a complete picture. With VITS, the model can not only recognize and understand different speech sounds but also generate new sounds that sound very similar to human speech. This technology has a wide range of applications, from creating realistic voice assistants to helping people with speech impairments communicate more effectively.
