Starting today, the Rust 2018 edition is in its first release. With this edition, we’ve focused on making Rust developers as productive as they can be. Most of the language changes are completely compatible with existing Rust code. Because they don’t break any code, they also work in any Rust code… even if that code doesn’t use Rust 2018. This is because of the way the language is evolving. Lin Clark illustrates and explains.
LPCNet is a new project out of Mozilla’s Emerging Technologies group — an efficient neural speech synthesiser with reduced complexity over some of its predecessors. Neural speech synthesis models have already demonstrated impressive speech synthesis quality, but their computational complexity has made them hard to use in real-time, especially on phones. Our solution with LPCNet uses a combination of deep learning and digital signal processing (DSP) techniques.
