Slate: Sing On, Vocal Deepfakes

Slate: Sing On, Vocal Deepfakes. “Certainly, it’s worrying that vocal avatars could be deployed in the manner that deepfake video and photos have been. For critics, a foreboding future looms where vocal deepfakes erode trust in traditional forms of evidence (and herald even more annoying robocalls and phone scams). For others, this nascent technology holds great promise, offering realistic vocal models for people with speech impairments, more convincing voice assistants, intimate chatbots, and myriad uses in the entertainment industry. Motivated more by artistic interests than commercial applications, musicians in particular envision different possibilities for the future of human and machine collaboration.”
