Deep Learning in Elixir with Axon

At profiq, we are always interested in learning something new, and trying novel technologies. One of these technologies is Elixir—a functional programming language whose main strengths lie in fault tolerance and scalability through concurrency. This makes it a good candidate for backend development, especially when it comes to high-traffic web applications. We, for example, utilize Elixir’s properties in cooperation with Divvy to handle a large number of financial transactions. But, this, of course, is not its only use.

A musical instrument able to replicate human speech is one of them. Inspired by YouTube videos and by our friends from the House of Hungarian Music in Budapest, we decided to dive deeper into the science and technology behind speaking instruments. Our mission? To understand how everything works, go beyond just a single instrument, and create an entire “speaking orchestra”. Our methodology In order…
