International Business Times

The iPhone 8 could include face recognition and a "wraparound" screen design, analyst Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company said, according to Business Insider. Arcuri predicts three iPhone models later this year, according to a research note circulated to Cowen and Company clients. The next iPhone 8 is referred to in the note as the "iPhone X." The note says one of the models, the iPhone X, will be a 5.8 inch OLED iPhone 8 with a "wraparound" "fixed flex" screen design with embedded sensors, according to Apple Insider, who also obtained the note. The model is rumored to come with features such as, face recognition.

[R] Deep Voice 2: Multi-Speaker Neural Text-to-Speech • r/MachineLearning

TL;DR Baidu's TTS system now supports multi-speaker conditioning, and can learn new speakers with very little data (a la LyreBird). I'm really excited about the recent influx of neural-net TTS systems, but all of the them seem to be too slow for real time dialog, or not publicly available, or both. Hoping that one of them gets a high quality open-source implementation soon!

Also, since I happen to have two identical webcams lying around, I adapted the code to also handle concurrent stereoscopic video feeds for the fun of it. It wasn't really meant to be a super rigorous implementation (ie, I used lstm instead of cnn layers), but I still think it had some mildly interesting outcomes. Also, imho the video feed of the loss makes for some fun visual effects.
