Samsung has announced the introduction of a new AI voice assistant that will enable users to answer calls with a digital voice copy. The technology has been created to allow users to take and make calls without having to be physically present. The AI assistant can be trained to sound like the user’s own voice and will mimic their speech patterns, accents, and inflections.
The new feature uses cutting-edge AI technology, including neural text-to-speech (TTS) and deep learning (DL) models. With these, Samsung can create an AI copy of the user’s voice with high accuracy, which can then be used to answer calls, read text messages, and more.
Samsung is not the first company to introduce this technology. Google has already released a similar feature for its Pixel smartphones, and Apple introduced its own version for the iPhone in 2019. However, Samsung claims that its technology is more advanced and accurate than its competitors, thanks to its use of advanced neural networks and machine learning algorithms.
The feature will be available on Samsung’s new Galaxy S30 and S30+ smartphones, which are due to be released later this year. Users will need to train the assistant to recognize their voice, which involves reading a series of phrases out loud. Once the AI assistant has been trained, it can be used to answer calls and read messages without the user having to physically pick up their phone.
Samsung believes that the new AI voice assistant will be particularly useful for people who are driving or have their hands full, as they will be able to take calls without having to physically interact with their phone. The technology could also be used to help people with disabilities or those who have difficulty speaking.
However, there are some potential privacy concerns associated with this technology. Users will need to provide Samsung with a sample of their voice, which the company will then use to create a digital voice copy. This has raised concerns that the technology could be used for nefarious purposes, such as creating fake audio recordings of individuals. Samsung has said that it takes privacy and security very seriously and that it will use a range of security measures to protect users’ data.
