Stable Audio is a latent diffusion model (just like Stable Diffusion!) exclusively trained on >800k sound files provided by AudioSparx, a leading music library and stock audio website.
The latent diffusion model utilizes a CLAP text encoder, as well as conditioning audio file duration and start time, allowing for control over the content and length of the generated audio. A 907m parameter U-net powers Stable Audio.

On 9/11 America suffered.

Coke’s latest mystery flavor is here. It’s created by AI [Link]
The latest one, Coca-Cola Y3000, fits the bill. The one distinction: It’s supposed to taste like the future. Fittingly, the soft drink giant used artificial intelligence to help determine the flavor and packaging.
The company relied on regular old human insights by finding out what flavors people associate with the future. Then it used AI to help figure out flavor pairings and profiles, a spokesperson said. For the product’s packaging — which appears to allude to a Y2K aesthetic with funky bubbles, pink and blue coloring, and a pixelated logo — Coca-Cola used AI-generated images to create a mood board for inspiration. The aluminum can even gives credit where it’s due, prominently noting it’s “Co-Created with AI.”
Mexico just casually unboxed two aliens [Link]
The corpses looked white and like stereotypical depictions of aliens — big head, little body, three fingers. Maussan said they were found in Peru in 2017 and are estimated to be 1,000 years old. One of the bodies had been pregnant, he claimed.
“These are not mummies,” he said. “These are complete bodies that have not been manipulated.” Speaking under oath, Maussan claimed the bodies were nonhuman.
He claimed the alleged aliens had big brains and big eyes — “which allowed for a wide stereoscopic vision” — and they lacked teeth, so they likely only drank and did not chew.
