AI Restores Journalist’s Voice
An American radio journalist is expected to recover his ability to speak and go back to broadcasting with the help of artificial intelligence.
Jamie Dupree, a political radio journalist with Cox Media Group, was left unable to talk due to a rare neurological condition. However, a Scottish technology company, CereProc, will be using a trained neural network that will “speak” for Dupree using his old voice recordings.
CereProc says that its AI system can produce voices which typically take a lot of effort and money to produce by using the neural network that they developed since 2006. Customers can now generate a voice in just a few days for only £500 after submitting a recording of themselves reading script on CereProc’s website.
