Deepfake Voice Technology: The Good. The Bad. The Future

Deepfake voice technology based on voice cloning, or quasi-perfect reproductions of a person’s voice, can be used both for the good and for the bad. It can be put in the service of voice synthesis that can give voice back to people who would otherwise lose it due to acute or chronic conditions such as ALS, apraxia, traumatic brain injury, stroke, etc.

It is already being used in the film and TV industry, gaming, call centers, and it is also potentially convenient for encryption and therapy. However, there is no denying that it can pose a significant threat to democratic processes, particularly to those related to the value of privacy. If used inappropriately, deepfake voice technology can perpetrate deceit and harassment.
