Summary:

The paper proposes a multi-modal AI system named AudioGPT that complements Large Language Models (LLMs) with foundation models to process complex audio information and solve numerous understanding and generation tasks. AudioGPT is connected with an input/output interface (ASR, TTS) to support spoken dialogue. The paper outlines the principles and processes to evaluate multi-modal LLMs and tests AudioGPT in terms of consistency, capability, and robustness. Experimental results demonstrate the capabilities of AudioGPT in solving AI tasks with speech, music, sound, and talking head understanding and generation in multi-round dialogues.

Key Insights & Learnings:

  • AudioGPT complements LLMs with foundation models to process complex audio information and solve numerous understanding and generation tasks.
