After the launch of ChatGPT, a tool from OpenAI company, the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) seems to be on the rise and reaching more and more new users and markets. All is not rosy, however, as the growth of artificial intelligence represents some uncertainty for certain professions and activities. A clear example of this has emerged recently in the field of dubbing.
According to the Vice website, several voice actors are being pressured by studios to give up their voices so that it can be used by artificial intelligence. Thus, automated vehicles can create synthetic versions of these sounds that can be sold to different customers. So in this scenario, voice actors may lose their place in the industry and become replaceable.
And that’s not all: according to the publication, several voice actors and advocacy organizations must have reported that this practice will be included as a “must” in actors’ contracts, and often they will not even receive compensation. ownership of their voices. So the fear of professionals in the field is that if AI really takes over, a whole group of industry professionals will be left without service forever.
“It is disrespectful to the arts to suggest that creating a performance is equivalent to the performance of a real person,” SungWon Cho, a voice actor in the game and animation industry, told Vice. “Of course, you can program it to sound like a voice and maybe even sound like you have emotion, but at the end of the day it will still sound fake and empty. Going down this road risks people thinking. It turns my stomach that external voices can be completely replaced by artificial intelligence. “
Luckily, the entertainment industry will test AI-generated audio at some point in some of its work, such as cinematics, musicals, and even games. But we will have to wait for the outcome of this story to know what will actually happen and how the public will accept the situation.
