What is Voice Cloning?

Voice Cloning is a technology that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze a voice and reproduce an AI voice resembling it. 

To clone someone’s voice, the AI voice model is trained on their sample audio content. It uses this data to understand and mimic the vocal characteristics of the person, like their tone, style, intonation, pitch, pronunciation, etc. 

Some AI Voice Cloning tools are so accurate that it’s hard to tell the difference between real and AI. Using these tools, you can replicate your voice and use it for various use cases, like content creation, customer service, ads, etc.
