For the past few months, the world has been centred around the COVID-19 Pandemic. But now, with increasing hope towards achieving normalcy, the focus is shifting towards the positive advancements and achievements that are coming up around the world. Similarly, the enthusiasm to join the AI force is evident among professionals across the world, unphased by the uncertainty posed by the pandemic. 

Job Searches in Artificial Intelligence Rise 106% in One Year 

The job-site Indeed has revealed that the job searches for artificial intelligence roles have risen by 106% in the last one year. The data is collated for the time period of June 2019 to June 2020. In the last six month alone (March 2020 to July 2020), job searches related to AI saw an increase of 20%. 


Also, as per the report, the top skills that are most demanded are Python, Natural Language Processing (NLP), and TensorFlow. 

Artificial Intelligence Can Create Sound Tracks for Silent Videos

Researchers Ghose and Prevost have created a deep learning algorithm that could generate realistic and synchronised soundtrack for a silent video. 

The University of Texas researchers used deep learning to automate this process by training a neural network on 12 popular movie events where directors frequently add Foley effects. Foley is the process where sound effects, which were not recorded earlier, are added to the movies to make it feel more realistic. 

They used neural networks to classify the class of sound to generate, and a sequential network generates the sound.
