Hey coders! I’m getting the chance to do research of anything I want for school. I won’t go into detail, but I am stuck between reserching two makecode arcade topics:
I could fully finish my text to speech programming for Makecode! By the end of this research, you would be able to use the program yourself. I would also get to write about my extensive research into sine waves which make up sound and how humans process speech!!
I could create neural networks (also called AI or artificial intelligence) in Makecode! This one I am a little less versed in, but also have done research into. I have a great understanding of how neural networks work and are used, but haven’t tried to program one before. You would be able to use these neural nets for your own projects too!
Here is the poll:
- Speech Synthesis!
- Neural Networks!
- I have an Idea! (Reply with your suggestion!)
I am already working on a speech synthesis program using Fourier series, and I’m hoping to release a program that converts .WAV (or MP3) files to a makecode format using sine waves of differing frequencies! The cap is 5kHz on MakeCode, but that’s more than enough to support harmonic sounds and even human speech (2 - 4kHz)
Yeah!! I haven’t seen it done before, so it sounds like a super cool idea.
Oh wow, thanks for informing me! That definately makes me more inclined to do neural nets. My programs used a software to find sine wave harmonics in speech, but that could only create up to 3 and pretty low quality!
Neural Networks it is! Although speech synthesis was winning by a little bit, sarge is already working on something even better so it would be a bit of a waste -w-
Thanks so much everyone for voting and helping me!!
Update: The thesis question for my project was accepted! “Is AI art real art?”
I had others but they weren’t accepted, so this is what I’m going with!
For part of it I am going to try and influence the reader by seeing a neural network try to replicate their art. (This will help the reader realize how AI art affectes the artists it copies!)
I’ll give more updates when I start coding the program
Update: I’ve done a ton of research and have written out how the AI will work. For my first AI i’m making a simple one: A bot that guesses if you like a color that is presented. I chose this because it has only 3 inputs, as opposed to the usual hundreds or thousands that come with traditional examples like number recognition. I’m starting work on it now!
That sounds like a great starting point! It’s a simple format, and there’s only 16 colors to work with so it should be pretty straight forward. I wish you the best of luck!
Actually, I’m doing the full RBG spectrum (0,0,0) to (255,255,255)!
Thanks for the luck, I’ll need it!

this reminds me of my Arduino unit in my STEM class
Ohh, that does sound harder! Well, yeah, good luck again. I might make a submission post for submitting songs for the examples after I’m done with my WAV to MakeCode synthesiser. (Or I might do it here)
I already have some songs and examples in mind, so yeah
Aww lucky you got a whole unit on Aurduino! My ‘coding’ class turned out to be a computer literacy, typing, and maybe scratch class. I should definately try arduino though
Really… then WHY does it have a CLICK? XD
Wasn’t me, I just hovered and i recognized the link. You got someone else
