MIT’s AI passes Turing Test for sound

Source: CC0 Nearly 70 years after the “Turing Test” was first proposed, the question remains: can we create intelligent machines that exhibit behavior indistinguishable from humans?In December MIT researchers helped develop a system that passed a “visual” Turing Test, producing written characters that fool humans. Now, researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) have demonstrated a deep-learning algorithm that passes the Turing Test for sound: when shown a silent video clip of an object being hit, the algorithm can produce a sound for the hit that is realistic enough to fool human viewers. The project represents much more than just a clever computer trick: researchers envision future versions of similar algorithms being used to automatically produce sound effects for movies and TV shows, as well…
