AI audio is on the rise and will spark new debates about the value of human effort

Posted by in categories: entertainment, robotics/AI

A well-known game studio is allegedly using AI voices for a video game. A clarification includes a commitment to human creativity. It’s another footnote in the debate over the value of human labor that will become more common in the future.

It’s the very debate that has erupted so vehemently around AI-generated images in recent months. Are AI images art? If so, can they be equated with human art? Are they detrimental to art? Are they even plagiarism, because the AI examines human works during training – in the inspiration phase, so to speak – and then imitates them in trace elements?

Image generation machines like DALL-E 2, Stable Diffusion, and Midjourney alone raise myriad questions about the value and interplay of human and machine labor. These questions are likely to increase because generative AI will not stop at 2D images. Another area it is already tapping into is audio.
