You might be flirting with a robot in the near-future and not even realize it because a tech startup has just created an AI that can actually imitate someone's speech patterns when they are flirting with you!
Sonantic just made a breakthrough in its development of audio deepfakes by creating a synthetic voice that can express subtleties like teasing and flirtation to help give its AI "biological authenticity."
You can hear the AI try to flirt with someone in the video below, but you already know that either telemarketers or people who catfish are going to use this to make them seem more believable than they really are.
If anything, at least we know robots can sound nice to us!! You can learn more about the AI HERE!
