The Fictions-Science series is a dive into the depths of today's science and art. This new series of events developed by the Bpi, La Parole-Centre Pompidou, and IRCAM focuses on participatory science and shared experiences among researchers, artists, and the general public around an innovative personality or field. Fictions-Science invites us to project ourselves into the near future, our present, through recent works and innovations, through their explosive or unsuspected effects on the society to come.
You have no idea what a voice can do! January's Fictions-Science is dedicated to the manipulation of the voice. The voice that we identify as an individual's own has become a favorite object of artificial intelligence. Communication and expressiveness, affect and health, cloning and deepfake, a voice can be transformed, metamorphosed, simulated through deep learning technologies. Tonight's guests discuss the advances and the ethical and anthropological consequences of the manipulated voice.
