Dead Singer Sings Again – level 1

12-02-2021 07:00

Kim Kwang-seok is a rock star. He comes from South Korea. He is very popular in his country. He dies in 1996.

A TV show is in South Korea. People who make the show have an idea. They want to use Kim’s voice. Kim’s voice will sing a song that Kim cannot know. The song does not exist before Kim dies.

A special program uses artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence means that a computer can do similar things that people do. The program learns 20 of Kim’s songs. Then, the program sings 700 Korean songs. The program must learn to sing like a real person.

It is difficult. People have feelings but computers do not. The program learns a new song. It sings it in Kim’s voice. Kim’s family is happy, too.

Difficult words: popular (when many people like something), program (a software in a computer which can do special tasks), feeling (when somebody feels happy, sad, angry, and so on).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
