>Special shoutouts go to cuckchannel's /mlp/ and its anons who have collectively spent hundreds of hours collecting, cleaning, and organizing clips of dialogue taken from the show My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Thanks to everyone else who helped curate datasets for their favorite characters. Further thanks to Cookie for entertaining a couple illuminating discussions that contributed to the latest iteration of the model, and for proposing the idea of using DeepMoji embeddings to aid in context-based emotive generations; thanks to persona nerd for suggesting using a GAN vocoder as an alternative, leading to a significant improvement in audio quality. Finally, thanks to everyone with whom I've corresponded with regarding related issues within the past two months. (And as always, thanks to /v/ for the excellent content.)
I don't remember any anon thanking an imageboard while working with machine learning tech, let alone cuckchan; it's usually disowned. Also, I've yet to see anything similar that relies on seiyuu clips in the animu side. Perhaps it's the way speech synthesis works for the Japs?
