Radio Interview on the Use of AI Voices in Films

Kathleen Loock was asked about the use of artificially generated voices and images in films for the radio contribution “KI-Stimmen in Filmen: Darth Vader lebt für immer” (AI Voices in Films: Darth Vader Lives Forever) which aired on October 2, 2022, as part of the program “Breitband” on the German public radio station Deutschlandfunk Kultur. She answered questions about whether the use of AI voices is a new trend in the entertainment industry. The actor James Earl Jones, who gave Darth Vader his low, monotone voice in the Star Wars films, sold the rights to his Darth Vader voice. Now an artificial intelligence can clone his voice for the use in future Star Wars films. The whole conversation (in German) is available here.
