This plus the new Google service that will call companies and set appointments has a lot of great applications. Imagine having google call your accountant and acheduling an appt with your voice, or having your voice heard when you call a doctors office to set an appointment? I like the positive implications here

It should be banned. It is to dangerous to have in normal public settings and for anyone in the public to be able to access and use. This is one of the things that SHOULDN'T be done. There needs to be world wide agreement on what things to tackle with AI and what things to stay clear of. Think of all the children that could be abducted due to their "parents" calling them over near a van or building etc.

The only thing a computer can't have is emotions, so if you wanna test if it's human or not? Tell it a joke.

It will be like in the films where you can have a voice modifier which changes your voice to match someone else’s!

Gotta say... I fail to see ANY positive uses for this "technology"... And Im usually one of those "hey give it a shot" kinda people... There is not a single use case that I can think of that would be an "actual use" for this, that ISN'T malicious or just generally bad... What could possibly be a positive use for this? Seriously? It takes a real person's voice, and mimmicks it, and repeats whatever u tell it to in that mimmicked voice... The only thing u could do with that is malicious... Making "someone" say stuff they normally wouldn't ever say... Because why would you want to take the extra effort to make a computer program copy your voice, then type out a speech, and have it read it back to you? You could just record the speech yourself... It'd be easier, simpler, and more effective...

Allot of the comments make this seem very dark. But, Imagine integrating this tech with language translation software. So that someone speaking another language, would be speaking you're language, in their voice, and not some machines. Amazing are the things morbid curiosity creates.

Not as smooth. Still has some roboty intonation but very impressive

AI is getting creepier and creepier by the minute. Bundle this with DeepFake and you now have the makings of a Black Mirror-like dystopian society

RPG games + this. Hell make every character use this so you can have infinite missions by just adding new script and not have to worry about voiceovers

3:50 - It would have been funnier if his mother's voice was also AI-ed and both didn't know that they were being pranked.

This can be used for those who have lost their voice. Movies can be made with historic figures from old voice recordings.

Ju B (27 days ago)
You can bring back the voices of people that have died over time, if you are able to find anything to sample from them. You could have more accurate voices for darn GPS options.
jakerdox (27 days ago)
I tried this and I sound nothing like the voice on the site. Way too fuzzy.

This should be illegal. Why is it available to the public? Isn’t this the kind of stuff the CIA should have under their belt from getting into people’s hands?

And yet I cannot help to imagine the 'bad' implementation of this technology. At least we know it's out there.

This will be cool for things like capturing the perfect animated voices of actors like Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill so after they eventually pass we'll still have the perfect batman and joker voices to use.
