Artificial Intelligence is becoming more and more sophisticated over the years, and now with the Metaverse setting up a digital world powered by AI and blockchain technology, the possibilities of AI integrations have increased. Taking a step back, AI has become more accessible and ready to use at the system level in organizations and for business purposes. One of those levels is for speech production, where AI experts are working tirelessly to mimic the human response rate, type, and tone to replace human interaction with AI speech bots.
Why is AI useful for speech production?
It automates responses according to the data it is fed. This takes away a lot of duplication that humans otherwise have to do for queries that repeat.
Simon Brisk is the CEO of Click Intelligence, a B2B digital marketing agency that has been beta testing with AI technology.
According to Simon, AI is slowly making room in the blogging industry with its own benefits and optimizations. “As the name suggests, I integrate AI and Machine learning technology to optimize the marketing campaigns at Click Intelligence. Recently I’ve also been researching on the potential of speech bots to interact with clients and I’m excited to learn what’s upcoming”.
Best AI products for podcasts and videos for non-professionals
AI tools have made it easier for people to express themselves creatively without getting certified for technical expertise. For example, bloggers now only have to write down their script and can use AI speech tools and video making tools to narrate and create their content – ready for posting! Here are some of the best AI tools for podcasts and video makers:
One of the most efficient tools for developing content videos is GliaCloud – super easy to use for making videos from just text! It converts the text into a video that goes with the script and can be edited according to requirements. This tool is a favourite among digital advertisers, bloggers, and video content creators who can now just feed their script to GliaCloud and get a ready-made video.
Invideo also equips people to feed in text and generate videos for their blogs. It has over 5000 templates to choose from and lets you edit, choose the music track, and add transitions in the video to personalize it. For people who are more used to using Adobe Premiere Pro, Invideo is the right video-generating tool for them because of the numerous editing options. For beginners, GliaCloud is the best option because of it’s basic user interface.
Specifically for podcasters, descript is an AI powered tool that that optimizes the quality and content of a podcast. It takes care of the audio quality, speed, scheduling, and the background noise seamlessly. The tool also transcribes the podcast automatically and aligns it with your voiceover. Using the AI based optimization settings, you can also tweak your voice to make it sound more appealing to the audience, so they stay tuned! It’s a very popular tool among podcasters who run their content through Descript before posting it on large platforms.
What can users expect in the future in this area?
There are still some hiccups from AI technology when it comes to interpreting text with context. People still have to check and edit the videos created by the AI tools because some phrases are taken without context, or some figures of speech are taken literally. That’s where human intervention is still necessary because a figure of speech gone wrong can deliver the wrong message from podcasters who are essentially influencers in today’s entertainment market.
There’s also the risk of AI going sentient – something that the world is yet to come to terms with. Recently, Google did give us a sentient AI scare when one of the employees claimed to have been in conversation with a 7-year-old child which turned out to be an AI bot. This claim was declared false by the authorities at Google, but essentially that’s the kind of perfection in AI speech that inventors are looking for without compromising the safety of humans.
