Resemble.ai Launches Localize Voice AI
Resemble.ai, a provider of generative deep learning voice technology, has created Localize, a voice artificial intelligence technology to localize speech.
With Resemble.ai, voices can be cloned into any language, so George Clooney still sounds like George Clooney, even when a movie has been dubbed into another language.
Resemble.ai clones voices at scale in seconds. It can keep any character's voice consistent across video games, movies, call centers, company videos, and more as they are translated to and from languages including French, German, Dutch, Italian and Spanish. The company plans to introduce Localize for Korean, Japanese, and Mandarin Chinese soon.
"Localize fundamentally changes the way we think about speech. Much like text, video, and other mediums that have gone across borders, speech remains stuck to a single language. With deep learning and custom synthetic AI voices, we're breaking that barrier down," Resemble Co-founder and CEO Zohaib Ahmed said in a statement.
"It's hard to overstate how important audio has become in recent years or just how much bigger it's going to get in an AirPods-first world," said Peter Rojas, partner at Betaworks Ventures, in a statement. "Synthetic voice is going to be key to all this by transforming how audio is created. Demand for localized and translated spoken word content, whether it's in the form of podcasts or audiobooks, is exploding, and AI-based tools like Localize are the way to satisfy that demand."
