Recording advertisements and product endorsements can be lucrative work for celebrities and influencers. But is it too much like hard work? That's what US firm Veritone is betting. Today, the company is launching a new platform called Marvel.AI that will let creators, media figures, and others generate deepfake clones of their voice to license as they wish. "People want to do these deals but they don't have enough time to go into a studio and produce the content," Veritone president Ryan Steelberg tells The Verge.

A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next.

Descript's new podcast editor includes an AI voice double for dubbing over mistakes

#artificialintelligence

Multimedia editing and transcription provider Descript is today announcing a redesigned version of its audio editing software that's geared toward podcast producers. The product, officially called Descript Podcast Studio, features a lot of the forward-thinking approaches to audio editing the company, created by Groupon founder and former CEO Andrew Mason, was founded on. Most prominently, that includes the ability to easily edit an artificial intelligence-generated transcription of your audio file as if you were editing a word document. Essentially, Descript turns your audio into text, broken up by who's speaking, and it then lets you manipulate those audio files as if you were editing on a text version of the script in a word processor. Delete a sentence or two, and Descript will automatically shorten the file to make the recording sound smooth and natural.
