sthbrx - a POWER technical blog: OpenPOWER Summit Europe 2018: A Software Developer's Introduction to OpenCAPI

Wed, 2018-11-21 18:20

Last month, I was in Amsterdam at OpenPOWER Summit Europe. It was great to see so much interest in OpenPOWER, with a particularly strong contingent of researchers sharing how they're exploiting the unique advantages of OpenPOWER platforms, and a number of OpenPOWER hardware partners announcing products.

(It was also my first time visiting Europe, so I had a lot of fun exploring Amsterdam, taking a few days off in Vienna, then meeting some of my IBM Linux Technology Centre colleagues in Toulouse. I also now appreciate just what ~50 hours on planes does to you!)

One particular area which got a lot of attention at the Summit was OpenCAPI, an open coherent high-performance bus interface designed for accelerators, which is supported on POWER9. We had plenty of talks about OpenCAPI and the interesting work that is already happening with OpenCAPI accelerators.

I was invited to present on the Linux Technology Centre's work on enabling OpenCAPI from the software side. In this talk, I outline the OpenCAPI software stack and how you can interface with an OpenCAPI device through the ocxl kernel driver and the libocxl userspace library.

My slides are available, though you'll want to watch the presentation for context.

Apart from myself, the OzLabs team were well represented at the Summit:

Unfortunately none of their videos are up yet, but they'll be there over the next few weeks. Keep an eye on the Summit website and the Summit YouTube playlist, where you'll find all the rest of the Summit content.

If you've got any questions about OpenCAPI feel free to leave a comment!

David Rowe: LPCNet meets Codec 2

Tue, 2018-11-20 19:05

The previous post described my attempts to come up to speed with NN based speech synthesis, with the kind help of Jean-Marc Valin and his LPCNet system.

As an exercise, I have adapted LPCNet to use Codec 2 features, and have managed to synthesise high quality speech at a sample rate of 8kHz. Here are the output speech samples:

Sample original LPCNet Codec 2 cq_ref Listen Listen hts1a Listen Listen hts2a Listen Listen mmt1 Listen Listen morig Listen Listen speech_orig Listen Listen

I’m happy with all of the samples except cq_ref. That sample has a lot of low freq energy (like the pitch fundamental) which may not have been well represented in the training database. mmt1 has some artefacts, but this system already does better than any other low rate codec on this sample.

This is not quite a quantised speech codec, as I used unquantised Codec 2 parameters (10 Line Spectral Pairs, pitch, energy, and a binary voicing flag). However it does show how LPCNet (and indeed NN synthesis in general) can be trained to use different sets of input features, and the system I have built is close to an open source version of the Codec 2/NN system presented by Kleijn et al.

Why 8kHz rather than the higher quality 16 kHz? Well LPCNet requires a set of Linear Prediction Coefficients (LPCs). The LPCs dumped by Codec 2 are sampled at 8kHz. It’s possible, but not straight forward, to resample the LPC spectra at 16 kHz, but I chose to avoid that step for now.

Training

My initial attempts led to good quality speech using samples from within the training database, but poor quality on speech samples (like the venerable hts1a) from outside the training database. In Machine Learning land, this suggests “not enough training data”. So I dug up an old TIMIT speech sample database, and did a bunch of filtering on my speech samples to simulate what I have seen from microphones in my Codec 2 adventures. It’s all described in gory detail here (Training Tips section). Then, much to my surprise, it worked! Clean, good quality speech from all sorts of samples.

Further Work

  • Add code to generate 16 kHz LPCs from 8 kHz LPCs and try for 16 kHz synthesised speech
  • Use quantised Codec 2 parameters from say Codec 2 2400 or 1300 and see how it sounds.
  • Help Jean-Marc convert LPCNet to C and get it running in real time on commodity hardware.
  • Make a real world, over the air contact using NN based speech synthesis and FreeDV.
  • A computationally large part of the LPCNet (and indeed any *Net speech synthesis system) is dedicated to handling periodic pitch information. The harmonic sinusoidal model used in Codec 2 can remove this information and hence much of the CPU load. So a dramatic further reduction in the number of weights (and hence CPU load) is possible, although this may result in some quality reduction. Another way of looking at this (as highlighted by Jean-Marc’s LPCNet paper) is “how do we model the excitation” in source/filter type speech systems.
  • The Kleijn et al paper had the remarkable result that we can synthesise high quality speech from low bit rate Codec 2 features. What is quality trade off between the bit rate of the features and the speech quality? How coarsely can we quantise the speech features and still get high quality speech? How much of the quality is due to the NN, and how much the speech features?

David Rowe: LPCNet – Open Source Neural Net Speech Synthesis

Tue, 2018-11-20 19:05

Jean-Marc Valin has been working on Neural Network (NN) based speech synthesis in his project called LPCNet. It has similar speech quality to Wavenet, but is based on an architecture called WaveRNN, and includes many new innovations.

Jean-Marc’s work is aimed at reducing the synthesis CPU load down to the level of a modern CPU, for example a mobile phone or Raspberry Pi, and he has made significant progress in that direction.

As well as being useful for his research – this code is a working, open source reference system for Neural Net (NN) based synthesis projects. He has also written an ICASSP 2019 paper on LPCNet, which explains many of the finer details of NN speech synthesis. Fantastic resources for other people coming up to speed in NN synthesis. Well done Jean-Marc!

Over the past few weeks Jean-Marc has kindly answered many NN-noob questions from me. I have used the answers to comment his code and add to his README. There are still many aspects of how this code works that I do not understand. However I can drive his software well enough to synthesise high quality speech:

/downloads/deep/train_181017.wav
/downloads/deep/test_181017.wav

The first sample was from inside the training database, the second outside.

The network is driven by some speech codec like parameters, but it’s not actually running as a speech codec at present. However it’s a great starting point for high quality speech (de)coding, or indeed speech synthesis.

How I trained

My GTX1060 GPU isn’t quite up to spec, so for training I had to reduce the batch_size to 16, and run for 60 epochs. I used the TSP speech database discussed in the LPCNet README, and followed Jean-Marc’s suggestion of resampling it twice (once at +5% Fs, once at -5% Fs), to get 3x the training data. It took 14 hours for me to train. Synthesis runs 10 times slower than real time on my GPU, however much of this is overhead. If the Keras code was ported to C – it would be close to real time on a modern laptop/phone CPU.

The perfect combination of high-end jewelry makes every bag unique. The control of color for Bulgari is also quite eye-catching, and its exquisite Italian craftsmanship is also known. Bulgari accessories redefine the modern paradigm of Italian aesthetics with fine leather, which has elegant shapes and quality materials.

The spring and summer of 2017 accessories Serpenti series and BVLGARI BVLGARI series have the perfect craftsmanship, and the jeweler’s fascinating ingenuity enriches its connotation well. They are the two most iconic collections of Bulgari, showcasing the bold and fearless soul of brand, blending luxury with avant-garde skills, and creating each luxury item with Bulgari’s unique creativity. Today we followed this green Bulgari Serpenti Forever bag belongs to ShuFanny into the classic Serpenti collection.

However, it must be said that this shoulder strap is really inconvenient to use in the summer, which invisibly increases the force to shoulder. Therefore, the autumn and winter is the seasons that are very suitable for this chain shoulder strap. And the metallic luster will add a lot of fashion to the overall wear.
