The sounds and texts presented on this website are generated by what is commonly referred to as an artificial intelligence. It is a deliberate artistic decision to show all generated texts without any subsequent editing or filtering. Due to that it may occur that the statements displayed are untrue. Furthermore in some rare cases it may generate offensive language or statements. Please consider that there is no human intention behind it.
weibelmaschine.net utilizes unisound's implementation of the SampleRNN neural network model to capture and reproduce the essence of the sound of Peter Weibel. To generate the text the German GPT-2 model of the MDZ Digital Library team at the Bavarian State Library was fine-tuned on Peter Weibel's Enzyklopädie der Medien with the huggingface transformers library according to Philipp Schmid's tutorial.
