Narrator's Round Table: Synthetic Voices, Let's Discuss...

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As synthetic voice algorithms, or artificial intelligence-driven programs that approximate the sound of a real human are getting better and better, and appearing more and more in the news, HEAR Now will be hosting a special session on Friday, June 7th from 7:30am - 8:45am, for all voice actors and interested attendees.
     This informal 'Bring Your Coffee' gathering will be led by Dr. Peter Gregg, of St. Thomas University, whose current research and scholarship focuses on media and audiences, including the formation of attitudes and beliefs through observation and active learning.
This will be an opportunity to share your feelings, and or concerns, about the incorporation of synthetic voices into the entertainment industries.
