Listen- Can You Tell The Difference? Artificial Intelligence, Fake Audios, Pics and Videos

I just watched a video from AI startup Dessa. Several of its engineers created a voice clone, perfectly mimicking the sound (tone, word choice, voice inflection…) of podcaster, comedian and MMA-commentator, Joe Rogan. Watch and listen here.

Can you tell the difference between the real Joe Rogan and the AI Joe Rogan? Are you as blown away by this AI technology as I am?

These are fascinating times. I’m a big fan of tech but, as a trial lawyer who thinks about foundation and authenticity evidentiary issues during trial, I’m concerned that many lawyers, judges and jurors, are going to be intentionally mislead by this kind of technology. People and companies are going to win and lose cases, and some will go to jail, because of fake evidence created with these AI tools.

I talked about similar technology in my 2017 blog post, “Fake News, Adobe VoCo and Authenticating Evidence” and also the positive side of using tech in trial in my 2016 post “Using Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Sensory Devices in the Courtroom!”

Even video is being altered every single day. Here’s a good example to help remind everyone that what you think you’re hearing and seeing may not actually depict the truth.

One of the reasons I agreed to be a contributing expert to our California State Bar’s “Effective Introduction of Evidence in California- Chapter 54 Electronic and Social Media Evidence” was to highlight these issues and, show lawyers how to protect the best interests of their clients. As technology gets better and better, so will the challenge of figuring out the difference between fact and fiction. The more we all know about this new AI, the better off we’ll be as a society.

I hope I’ve given you a few things to think about. Enjoy the rest of your day and make this weekend your masterpiece!

P.S.  Yes, it’s really me, and not an AI bot, writing this post 😉

Mitch’s New Amazon Skill Flash Update

“There’s no future that doesn’t have ambient computing or voice activation … you have to get in early.” -Mark Cuban

 

Mitch Jackson Amazon Flash Briefing

My Amazon Skill aka Flash Briefing went live this week. It’s titled, “Trial Lawyer Communication Tips.” In each flash update on Amazon Echo, I share a short daily audio that include award winning trial lawyer advocacy and communication tips to help good lawyers become great trial attorneys and, smart business owners become better communicators.

To Listen Using Your Amazon Echo

To listen to the updates on your Amazon Echo, you can “enable” my flash briefing by going to Mitch.Today on your desktop, laptop, tablet or simply by using the Amazon Echo app on your phone. You can also use the search bar at the Amazon website to search for “Trial Lawyer Communication Tips” or “Mitch Jackson.” (tip- narrow your search results by using the search arrow to search only for “Alexa Skills.”

Regardless of how you get to my flash briefing, the next step is to “enable” it.

Then, the next time you want to listen to your flash updates using Amazon Echo, simply say, “Alexa, what’s my flash briefing” or “Alexa, what’s in the news,” and you’ll get my latest update along with any others you’ve enabled.

To listen Using Your Phone

From your phone, open the Amazon Shopping App. Note this is different from the Alexa App. The app looks like this in the app store:

Next, tap the white circle (iPhone) or microphone symbol (android) at the top right and enable your microphone. From this point forward, you can simply say, “Alexa, play my flash briefing.”

You can use the buttons to move ahead, go back, pause or stop.

In Conclusion

I believe voice is very cool. It’s going to change the world. If you’re not using an Amazon Echo or Google Home device, think about starting (but get an Amazon Echo because for now, that’s the only way you can listen to my daily flash briefings).

I have over a thousand tips I’ll be sharing over the next several years on voice. Frankly, I’m bitting at the bit to share them all with you.

However, if you have trial lawyer advocacy or business communication questions or issues you’d like me to cover, message me with the details and I’ll try to address your question or needs in an upcoming flash update!

Thanks!

Mitch
