Air Force Launches New Program

 - Nov 14, 2006
The Air Force wants to make their voices sound like another person. They're now recruiting researchers that can develop voice transformation algorithms. If this program became successful it will be very effective to fool their enemies like in the movie terminator when T1000 copy the voices of John Connor's foster parents, in order to tempt the future leader of humanity back home and kill him. Defense Tech Reports, "If that all works as planned, the idea is to move on to experiments with human listeners... to assess the validity and potential use of voice transformation techniques. And if that goes well, too, then it's on to employ[ing] voice transformation software... for use in a deception campaign against hostile forces."
