Sounds like…me?

Run time: 19:00 – 20:30
In the past, computer-generated voices sounded robotic and lacked emotion which made them easy to identify. However, today, machines can create a voice that mimics your own natural speaking style, even in languages you don't know.
These advancements are happening quickly and hold great potential for use in education, communication assistance, and creative endeavours. But how do these "voice clones" affect us psychologically? 
Join Carolyn McGettigan to explore their research into voice clones, discovering where our voices come from and what they say about us. Have a go at cloning your own voice and consider how clones could and should be used in our society.
