Valerie Frissen on NPO Radio 1 about Microsoft's new VALL-E software
Microsoft’s new software VALL-E only has to hear a voice for three seconds to be able to imitate it almost perfectly. You can choose which emotion the voice should use and what it should say. Valerie Frissen, Professor by special appointment of Digital Technology and Social Change at eLaw, and Director of the SIDN Fonds, discusses this new development in the field of AI, while also expressing some concerns.
'The distinction between what is real and not real is becoming increasingly blurred. This can bring interesting and positive developments, but careful thought needs to be given to the framework conditions needed to deploy this kind of software in a responsible manner.’
