No doubt that the world has been advancing rapidly in every aspect of life and same progress is being registered in technological field too with the development of AI technologies it’s becoming clear that the human capabilities are going to be widely increased in the coming yaers but with suc develoments elon’s words are also to be taken into cognizance that with Ai we migh be summoning the devil.

The world of AI technologies has now reached anew level with the introduction of an Ai that can imitate any voice.
Lyrebird, a new AI out of Montreal, has just come on the scene with surprisingly accurate imitations of real people’s voices.
In order to be accurate in voice generation, Lyrebird needs to hear the voice to be mimiced for sometime. But what really sets these imitations apart is the fact that they are not simply canned assemblages of words but the words are indoctrinated with emotional weight.Which means it can also be calibrated to speak along an emotional spectrum.
Now there is definitely the problem of identity fraud Even while revealing their success, the programmers chose the voices of people known for being longwinded like the U.S. politicians.
On Lyrebird’s demo page, you can hear Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump talking about exactly how amazing the technology is.
There are other Ethical issues too voice recordings are often used as evidence in court cases, for example. Lyrebird might be the best and newest audio manipulation software out there, but it’s certainly not the first,so its clear that the validity of such evidence is questionable here.
This is just the beginning and if these technological advancement don’t come with remedial measures for protection against their misuse it could turn out to be different for the coming generations as we a shuman race have only excelled in technology and just think what this tech in its infancy will be a decade from now.
