Actor or algorithm: Can you spot Trump fakes?

Actor or algorithm: Can you spot Trump fakes? | Robotics and AI Expert Systems | Scoop.it
How convincing are algorithms that can impersonate the US president's voice?
Carol Hancox's insight:
Algorithm developed to mimic Trump - with the use of machine learning and audio data of Trump in speeches.  This data was then used to train the algorithm.  Then new sentences could be fed into the system to speak like Trump.  Very difficult to distinguish but could lead to lots of authenticity/reliability issues and misuse.
