The AI clone voice sounds very sinister idk just something about it. The perfect balance of it sounding accurate but not perfect. It’s reminds me of the uncanny valley.

Actually they have a point. They are making society know about this technology. With so many political interests I’m sure someone already came up with this idea and brought it to life without informing society of course.

I hope they can preserve Douglas Rain's (voice of HAL 9000) voice before he dies. He turned 90 this year.

So their strategy to comfort people with this technology is "boiling frog". It will work too; Unfortunately, always does.

In the future we may have to start a conversation with a password/codeword between close friends so we know that its really us talking, but then there could end up no way of knowing if a recording is someone or not, thats crazy
StevinSto (2 days ago)
But what positive things could this be used for? I feel there's more potential for it to be used maliciously and with negative intentions before anyone or any corporation would use it to better humanity.

Incredible, but results in unusable evidence in court (because vocal recordings could be fabricated). As cool as it is, maybe it's one of those things that's better not made?

So what's going to happen when we can't trust video or audio of a person? It's gonna be really easy to impersonate someone over the phone via video calls soon. We're gonna have to get microchipped or something just to verify our own identity.

So don't believe anything you hear or see. Got it. Thanks to technology, you have blurred the lines between fiction and reality.

The computer lacks any kind of inflection, and I don't believe you can easily teach it where that would be appropriate without getting into some advanced Turing test acing AI, on top of the mimickry. My suggestion for a workaround would be to create a notation script for the typing user to indicate a range of inflections manually, _or_ translate from spoken input, extracting timing, inflection, and other tonal cues from that source. The former would probably still be robotic to a degree, though simpler to use. The latter would avail professional actors to take on the roles of real-life persons -- from historical figures to iconic actors of the past -- without needing to be a perfect mimic as well as a convincing actor.

I can see no solid reason to code this stuff in the first place. What's their justification for generating this code? Fake news?

Striking precision? Pft i could tell the difference with ease.
Mark Sorious (3 days ago)
What I think positive about this is like when someone passed away and just felt missing them you will just listening to their voice or maybe in the future just having a conversation with the AI feeling that the person is away but not totally gone.

"Unfortunately, technology, it's not possible to stop it." Well, I mean... You could just stop it. You're creating it. Just stop doing that. I honestly can not think of a legitimately useful reason for this technology other than to make malicious activity easier.

This is not something we should be afraid of. This doesn’t help us. Sure it’s nice for a joke but I don’t see how this is beneficial. I like the idea of ai but I don’t like what this ai can do. I’m glad we know about it so we can learn but it’s scary.
