Character and manner of speech
To recreate the man’s speech style and some traits of his character, psychologists conduct interviews with the “prototype”. Then, experts create a linguistic model that takes into account the characteristics of temperament, character, and mood – and download it into a robotic copy. As a result, the droid answers the questions exactly as a specific person would do (or very close to the original).
If you want to surprise a friend by giving him a twin robot, or order a copy of a famous actor – psychologists can analyze data from open sources. Interviews, videos, posts on social networks, audio messages and other information will help us.
The Robo-C voice is created individually for each droid. Linguists collect person voice data (by interviews or audio messages) and analyze them, identifying voice features – timbre, pace, pitch and speed of speech.
Meanwhile there is no technology that will allow you to copy the voice of a particular person as accurately as Robo-C copies appearance. But we are working on it.
