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
library according to Philipp Schmid's tutorial.
