This script is just awful, I wrote it in 5 minutes and just went plunged ahead because I didn't want to spend more than a day on this. Just for clarity, the voice AI used here is an external tech, and was not developed by SP in any way. I just signed up for the new voice service, and then added it's output into our existing pipeline.
Every 6 months or so, I check in on the progress of many different technology tracks, in a rotation. Unfortunately a cursory glance or a youtuber's word isn't good enough for my purposes, so each time I actually build the technology (typically from modular code segments from research papers), or just rent it in this case, and run it through a use case scenario, such as building this video.
To simplify this dumb script, The automatic animation isn't good, but could be useful for youtube videos and comedy. The next gen AI voices are now so good that they could replace about half of the human voice actors. That's up from zero percent last year.
Anyway, I find this video a bit creepy. Not just from watching my head talk in another voice, but more because of the strange Wallace and Gromit teeth it draws in when it opens my mouth. (mouth was closed in the picture I gave it)
On another level though, it's kind of amazing how far it's come already.
The fake characters are from the SP pipe, so this does show what they'll look like, they will just move way more realistically like the cat in the hybrid video.
