  • A Montreal-based company called Lyrebird has developed speech synthesis technology which can almost perfectly copy someone’s voice.
  • “We are able to learn a new voice with as little data because our model is able to capture similarities between the new voice and all the voices it already knows,” explains Alexandre de Brebisson, one of the Ph.D. students involved in the system’s development.
  • And what if someone else could deliver a speech for you using the technology to replicate your voice?
  • And there are many other ways in which someone could potentially “steal” another person’s voice and cause real damage to that person’s reputation.
  • The truth is, this type of technology dehumanizes us, since our voices are an integral part of what differentiates us from others.

A Montreal-based company called Lyrebird has developed speech synthesis technology which can almost perfectly copy someone’s voice. And it can do so with very little data, needing only one minute of audio to extract the DNA of a human voice. The name is well chosen, since the Australian lyrebird is famous for its ability to almost perfectly mimic sounds in its environment.
