AI Foley Artist Fools Human Ears

Foley artists reproduce everyday sound effects for radio, film and television. Humans are able to navigate the world around us through our five senses and it could be argued that we have significant reliance on sight and hearing over touch, taste and smell. Using our senses, we can learn from our interactions with the world around us and begin to predict actions and reactions in our environment. For robots to function more effectively in industrial and commercial settings, they too will need to be able to make predictions about their surroundings. Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have developed an algorithm capable of predicting sound. When shown a video of an object being hit, the algorithm produces a realistic sound capable of fooling human ears. The…
