Company in Canada Developing Technology to Mimic Voices


This is an accompaniment to my post The Realism Dilemma. This technology scares me more in the short term because it's easier to perfect than photorealistic video of moving people. If you thought you couldn't trust what's said on radio and podcasts now, well just wait until this technology gets around.

This has other implications as well though. It could mean that voice actor's voices could be used long after they're dead. Also, it means that murderers could pretend that their victims are still alive. There are other possible negative uses but I don't want to distract you from the article. Read it and if you have anything to say then leave a comment.
