Zohaib Ahmed CEO of Resemble AI on Synthetic Voices – Voicebot Podcast Ep 251
Zohaib Ahmed co-founded Resemble AI in 2019 after working as a software engineer at high-profile and innovative companies including Magic Leap, Hipmunk, and Blackberry. Zohaib’s tenure at Magic Leap introduced him to novel UI interactions and his work analyzing user data led to deep learning models. From there he began to explore synthetic media and speech synthesis and Resemble was born.
Resemble AI graduated from the Betaworks Synthetic Camp accelerator back in 2019 and was recently in the news for creating Andy Warhol’s voice for a new Netflix documentary. We discuss what it takes to clone a voice, how text-to-speech models have evolved, and what it takes to bring Andy Warhol’s diaries to life.
