Creating a Rap AI: Generating Lyrics, Audio, and Video

TLDRIn this video, we build our own rap generation AI using three different machine learning models: a text generation model, a voice cloning model, and an image animation model. We generate rap lyrics, clone Stormzy's voice, and animate an image of his head to make it look like he's rapping. All of this is done in just 15 minutes!

Key insights

🎵We use a pre-trained text generation model to generate rap lyrics in Stormzy's style.

🎤A voice cloning model helps us clone Stormzy's voice and synthesize audio for our rap.

📽️We animate an image of Stormzy's head to make it look like he's rapping in the video.

All of this is done in just 15 minutes, thanks to our coding skills and the power of AI!

🔥By combining different AI models, we create an impressive rap AI that can generate lyrics, audio, and even animated videos.

Q&A

Can I generate rap lyrics in different styles?

Yes, the text generation model can be trained on different artists' lyrics to generate rap in their respective styles.

Can I use voice cloning to clone other artists' voices?

Yes, voice cloning can be used to clone the voice of any artist, allowing you to generate audio in their unique style.

How long does it take to generate rap lyrics, audio, and video?

The process can be done in just 15 minutes, thanks to our coding skills and the power of AI models.

What other applications can these AI models have?

These AI models can be applied to various other tasks, such as speech synthesis, character animation, and content creation.

Can I customize the image animation to other artists?

Yes, the image animation model can be customized to animate images of any artist, bringing their performances to life.
