Should we be concerned about the possibility of voice clone attacks?


The fear of AI-powered audio-fakery has reached new heights after a convincing AI clone imitated the voice of the President in a recorded message to prospective voters in New Hampshire. The incident has raised concerns about the malicious uses of AI technology, prompting cybersecurity company Secureworks to demonstrate an AI system capable of calling and responding to individuals. The system, which uses human-sounding AI agents, can make millions of phone calls per day. While the technology is primarily designed for call centres and surveys, it has the potential to be used for nefarious purposes such as generating misinformation during elections. The National Cyber Security Centre has warned of the threats posed by AI deepfakes to the upcoming UK election. However, experts argue that it is important not to lose faith in reputable information due to the existence of deepfakes.
