Anti AI AI Wearable Detects Artificial Voices

Anti AI AI is a wearable  neural network prototype designed to notify the wearer when a synthetic voice is detected in the environment. It was created by the R&D team at the creative technology agency DT.

The device is implemented in a unique thermoelectric feedback device that lets the wearer know when the voice they are hearing was synthesised


(Anti AI AI)

The post-truth era is just getting started. Near the end of 2017 we’ll be consuming content synthesised to mimic real people. Leaving us in a sea of disinformation powered by AI and machine learning. The media, giant tech corporations and citizens already struggle to discern fact from fiction. And as this technology is democratised it will be even more prevalent.

We wanted the device to give the wearer a unique sensation that matched what they were experiencing when a synthetic voice is detected. Common feedback mechanisms use light, sound or vibration to alert users. By using a 4x4mm thermoelectric Peltier plate we were able to create a noticeable chill on the skin near the back of the neck without drawing too much current.

Science fiction writers have played with the idea of artificial voices and voice technology. Consider the multiple sample voice from The Shining One (1937) by Nat Schachner, the robot voice from Catch That Rabbit (1944) by Isaac Asimov, and even the voice-changing bowtie from Case Closed (1994) by Gosho Aoyama.

I'd also point out that researchers are interested in smell as well as sound; see Turing's Nose - Was That Scent Real Or Artificial?.
