The Kid Should See This

Will Computers Ever Hear Like People Do?

On the left, everyday sounds are being recorded. On the right-side, spectrograms show frequencies of the sound waves, their volume and visual patterns over time. They were created with this Chrome Music Lab experiment where you can see what different sounds look like.

This Nat and Friends video features 12 Minutes Of Great Sounds… dog sounds, vacuum sounds, coin sounds, singing bowl sounds, bubble wrap sounds, whoopee cushion sounds, city sounds, fidget spinner sounds, and more. It’s a bonus video to this one about how technology is working to interpret everyday sounds: Will Computers Ever Hear Like People Do?

Follow this with these sound videos: The Secret World of Foley, A.I. Experiments: Bird Sounds, and Music in Objects: Bicycles, paper, & oats make new songs.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
