  • OpenAI has announced Voice Engine, a new AI system capable of recreating human voices.
  • The company is testing this product with “a small group of businesses.”
  • OpenAI is keeping it private for now to examine the potential (and obvious) dangers.

OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, has been on a bit of a roll lately. ChatGPT’s success has been astounding, of course, but the company also recently announced Sora, a system capable of creating 60-second video clips that look very realistic. Now, the company has announced a new system called Voice Engine, which can recreate human voices (via The New York Times).

Like Sora, OpenAI is not allowing the public to use Voice Engine — at least not yet. For now, the company is privately testing the system with “a small group of businesses.” Obviously, the reason it is doing this is due to the massive ethical implications of a system that can mimic a real person’s voice.
