Artificial Intelligence Can Now Copy Your Voice: What Does That Mean For Humans?

It takes just 3.7 seconds of audio to clone a voice. This impressive—and a bit alarming—feat was announced by Chinese tech giant Baidu. A year ago, the company’s voice cloning tool called Deep Voice required 30 minutes of audio to do the same. This illustrates just how fast the technology to create artificial voices is accelerating. In just a short time, the capabilities of AI voice generation have expanded and become more realistic which makes it easier for the technology to be misused.

Capabilities of AI Voice Generation

Like all artificial intelligence algorithms, the more data voice cloning tools such as Deep Voice receive to train with the more realistic the results. When you listen to several cloning examples, it's easier to appreciate the breadth of what the technology can do including being able to switch the gender of the voice as well as alter accents and styles of spee.
