Summary
OpenAI has introduced a small-scale preview of Voice Engine, a model capable of generating natural-sounding speech using text input and a 15-second audio sample, which mimics the original speaker's voice closely. Initially developed in late 2022, the Voice Engine has been integrated into OpenAI's text-to-speech API and ChatGPT Voice, emphasizing the cautious approach towards its broader release due to potential misuse. The article showcases various beneficial applications by trusted partners, including providing reading assistance, translating content in the original speaker's voice for global reach, improving service delivery in remote areas, and supporting non-verbal communication and speech recovery for individuals with disabilities or speech impairments. OpenAI is engaging with partners to ensure responsible use, including consent requirements, and exploring safety measures like watermarking and voice authentication to mitigate risks associated with synthetic voice technology. This reflects OpenAI's commitment to AI safety and responsible AI deployment while highlighting the need for societal resilience against the challenges posed by advanced generative models.
