AI gave Val Kilmer his voice back

More details on how the voice was created on Sonatic's blog

The Hollywood actor lost his natural voice after a surgery for throat cancer in 2015, shattering his career and permanently altering the way he communicates. That is, until late last year when Sonantic, a U.K.-based software firm that clones voices for actors and studios, helped Kilmer to speak again. A wave of start-ups are deploying artificially intelligent voice-cloning services for digital assistants, video games and movie studios. The generated voices have gotten more realistic in the age of deepfakes and sound deceptively real.
