<b>Smart assistant devices often need to perform speech translation, which does not always produce the desired voice identity due to drawbacks in the conventional voice conversion (VC) model. In a new study, researchers from Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology designed a VC model that mimics and controls speaker voice identity during speech translation using two deep learning based training frameworks, opening doors to voice modification, voice restoring, and voice cloning applications. </b>

Corn is America's top agricultural crop, and also one of its most wasteful. About half the harvest--stalks, leaves, husks, and cobs-- remains as waste after the kernels have been stripped from the cobs. These leftovers, known as corn stover, have few commercial or industrial uses aside from burning. A new paper by engineers at UC Riverside describes an energy-efficient way to put corn stover back into the economy by transforming it into activated carbon for use in water treatment.
