Deepfakes have had a bad reputation, until now. A new app called Overdub aims to use the AI technique for a better cause.
Descript, the company behind Overdub, has launched a private beta test for the app that uses audio samples of a person's voice to generate new words or phrases, Fast Company reports.
The idea behind the app is to help creators save time and money on re-recording. The developers said that the system is resistant to abuse as it requires one to speak random sentences which must match the transcript to process them.
