Abrégé

An electronic device associated with a media-providing service displays a user interface that includes a representation of a first media item. While the representation of the first media item is displayed, the electronic device initiates playback of a preview of the first media item. The electronic device further detects a first input by a user to display a representation of a second media item. Then, while the electronic device is displaying the representation of the second media item, the electronic device initiates playback of a preview of the second media item. Based on a determination that the preview of the second media item has completed playback, the electronic device plays the second media item and adds the second media item to the user's playback history without further intervention by the user.

An electronic device stores, for a user of a media-providing service, a playback history that includes information about media items that have previously been consumed by the user. The electronic device receives a request to search for media content including search criteria. In response to the request, and without additional user intervention, the electronic device generates a vector representation of the user using media items from the playback history of the user that are relevant to the search criteria. The electronic device identifies one or more media content items from a media content library that match the vector representation of the user and the search criteria and provides, to the user, the one or more media content items.

Abrégé

A cuepoint determination system utilizes a convolutional neural network (CNN) to determine cuepoint placements within media content items to facilitate smooth transitions between them. For example, audio content from a media content item is normalized to a plurality of beats, the beats are partitioned into temporal sections, and acoustic feature groups are extracted from each beat in one or more of the temporal sections. The acoustic feature groups include at least downbeat confidence, position in bar, peak loudness, timbre and pitch. The extracted acoustic feature groups for each beat are provided as input to the CNN on a per temporal section basis to predict whether a beat immediately following the temporal section within the media content item is a candidate for cuepoint placement. A cuepoint placement is then determined from among the candidate cuepoint placements predicted by the CNN.

A second wake word detector, at a media-playback device, that plays audio (or other) content to a device, such as a voice-enabled device, detects false wake words in the audio content. The second wake word detector analyzes the audio stream to determine if the audio stream contains any audio that sounds like the wake word. If so, the second wake word detector can generate one of a plurality of instructions that describes the time period, within the audio content, in which the false wake word was encountered. The instruction can cause a first wake word detector to assume one of a plurality of configurations. The media-playback device can then instruct or inform the voice-enabled device of the presence of the false wake word. In this way, the wake word detector, at the voice-enabled device, is not activated to receive the false wake word or ignores the wake word.

Abrégé

A wake word detector, at a server of a content delivery network (CDN) that provides audio (or other) content to a device, such as a voice-enabled device, detects false wake words in the audio content. The CDN wake word detector analyzes the audio stream to determine if the audio stream contains any audio that sounds like the wake word. If so, the CDN wake word detector can generate metadata that describes the time period, within the audio content, in which the false wake word was encountered. The metadata can include time offsets, from the start of the audio content, which can instruct a voice-enabled device to deactivate during the time period. This metadata is stored and then sent to the media-playback device requests the media content. The media-playback device can then instruct or inform the voice-enabled device of the presence of the false wake word. In this way, the wake word detector, at the voice-enabled device, is not activated to receive the false wake word.

Abrégé

A text-to-speech synthesis method includes receiving text, inputting the received text in a synthesizer that includes a prediction network configured to convert the received text into speech data having a speech attribute that includes emotion, intention, projection, pace, and/or accent, and outputting said speech data. The prediction network is obtained by obtaining a first sub-dataset and a second sub-dataset, where the first sub-dataset and the second sub-dataset each include audio samples and corresponding text, and the speech attribute of the audio samples of the second sub-dataset is more pronounced than the speech attribute of the audio samples of the first sub-dataset, training a first model using the first sub-dataset until a performance metric reaches a first predetermined value, training a second model by further training the first model using the second sub-dataset until the performance metric reaches a second predetermined value, and selecting one trained model as the prediction network.
