How does the Skype noise cancellation feature work?
Skype is based on noise-cancellation machine learning (ML), it will automatically identify the difference between voice and unpleasant noise, and this technique is commonly known as Artificial Intelligence. An agent dataset is used to design the ML model to work in the greater part of our Skype client experience situations.
In simple words, it examines your audio during a video call and then by filtering the noise from your audio with the help of deep neural networks technology, removes the noise on your speaker’s voice without any effect. This feature is completely different from the conventional noise cancellation feature as this technology also filters the voice like typing and food wrapping of your keyboard.
The company says it used up to 760 hours of clean speech data and 180 hours of noise data in its training module. The noise data that he included in his research model was more like typing, buzzing, and running water, etc.
