AI voice tool ‘misused’ as deepfakes flood web forum

A BRITISH AI firm said it was rethinking its “safeguards” after its audio tool was used to clone celebrity voices and have them say racist and homophobic slurs.  

Eleven Labs tweeted yesterday that it had been a “crazy weekend” and admitted to finding “an increasing number of voice cloning misuse cases” just days after it released a demo version of the tool.
