This radio DJ you hear may already be a robot

OAKLAND / LOS ANGELES – Andy Chenley, host of Afternoon Drive on Southern California public radio station 88.5 KCSN, has been a radio DJ for over 32 years. And now, thanks to artificial intelligence technology, his voice will sound simultaneously in many places.

“I may be a robot, but I still love rock,” says robot DJ ANDY, a derivative of Artificial Neural Disk-JockeY, in Chenley’s voice during a demonstration for Reuters where the voice was hard to distinguish from a human DJ. …

Our phones, speakers and rice cookers have been talking to us for years, but their voices were robotic. Seattle-based artificial intelligence startup WellSaid Labs says it has so far refined the technology to create over 50 real-life voice avatars, such as ANDY, where a producer simply needs to type in text to create a narrative.

Zach Zalon, CEO of Los Angeles-based startup Super Hi-Fi, said ANDY will be integrated into its artificial intelligence platform that automates music production. So, instead of a music playlist, ANDY can DJ, presenting and talking about songs.

The next step is to automate the AI ​​of the text, which is also created by humans. “This is truly a triumvirate that we think will take this to the next level,” Zalon said.

This achievement could raise concerns about deep forgeries, as AI perfects human imitations in time.

“Every week we have a group of content moderators who will delete accounts,” said Martin Ramirez, WellSaid’s head of growth. “If you create content that is not in line with our values ​​and our ethical standards, goodbye. It’s so easy for us. “

Ramirez said that after creating voice avatars, WellSaid manages commercial agreements as requested by the owner of the voice. WellSaid voice avatars do more than just a DJ. “They are used in corporate training materials or even for reading audiobooks,” Ramirez said.
