AI & Deep Fake

What will new artificial intelligence developments in the world of gaming and film voice overs, mean for the world of deep fake?


Sonantic co-founders Zeena Qureshi and John Flynnfounders believe using AI technology to augment actors’ voices will be the new normal in less than 5 years.


The London based company has created what it claims is the first artificial intelligence voice models that sound genuinely human, and capable of expressing a wide range of human emotions, from fear and sadness to joy and surprise.


Sonantic records the voice actors’ performances and utilises deep learning algorithms to augment the data captured.


To demonstrate the technology, Sonantic have released a demo video (right) highlighting their partnership with games developer, Obsidian Entertainment.


Although, does this AI voice technology have serious ramifications if applied in the world of deep fake?


Recently, three Tom Cruise videos were anonymously posted to TikTok from an account called @deeptomcruise. The videos were revealed to have been created by Chris Ume.
