The Register: Oomm-tsss, oomm-tsss, Oomm-tsss, oomm-tsss… it’s an AI beatbox. “Vid AI can now beatbox for you for hours on end using your voice, if you’re into that kind of thing. Nao Tokui – a visiting associate professor at Kyushu University in California and a CEO of Qosmo, an AI and music startup – has developed a neural-network-based system that collects about 20 seconds of any sound to produce a custom drum kit, and then automatically sequences rhythms using those utterances and noises.”
