Artificial Intelligence Fools Humans With Realistic Sounds

The first artificial intelligence algorithm to pass the “Turing Test for sound” has been created, capable of producing sounds that fool humans into thinking they are real. Researchers from the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) demonstrated an algorithm that was able to view silent video clips and accurately predict realistic sounds that might appear. Try Newsweek: Subscription offers In order to train the algorithm, the researchers fed it with around 1,000 videos containing an estimated 46,000 sounds produced using a drumstick. “To then predict the sound of a new video, the algorithm looks at the sound properties of each frame of that video, and matches them to the most similar sounds in the database,” said Andrew Owens, a CSAIL PhD student who…
