With more than 20 years of experience in film, music, and publishing, Garianno Lorenzo received the Governor’s Award and was invited to the White House for his work as a writer. Recently, he and his team have developed a software/hardware project, called Uncore Sound Alchemy, that revolutionizes voice technology.
Lorenzo reports that the program generates perfect renditions of any human voice, after sampling a voice clip. The program is then able to generate original speech in that individual’s voice, containing none of the words used in the audio sample input.
The program, names FOE (Freedom of Expression), could also be used to enhance the quality of previously recorded speeches by eliminating feedback noise, cutting out background noise, and adding to the speech. This has exciting implications for creating original speeches within a historical context for films, for example.
The program is so foolproof that audio specialists cannot discern real speech from computer-generated speech.
