OpenAI is offering limited access to a text-to-voice generation platform it developed called Voice Engine, which can create a synthetic voice based on a 15-second clip of someone’s voice. The AI-generated voice can read out text prompts on command in the same language as the speaker or in a number of other languages. “These small scale deployments are helping to inform our approach, safeguards, and thinking about how Voice Engine could be used for good across various industries,” OpenAI said in its blog post

Cybertruck customers are once again outraged over broken promises after Tesla started shipping the first batch of tent attachments that leaves much to be desired. The Basecamp tent, which comes with the hefty price tag of $3,000, appears to be missing the allure of the company’s promotional pictures, including an ‘ultra-soft mattress’ and ‘enhanced camping experience.’ Advertisements of the Basecamp tent boasted that it would evenly attach to the back of the Cybertruck and a video shows two parents and a child fitting comfortably in the tent and screened windows to provide ‘a view of the stars.’ Daily Mail 

It’s no secret that Discord has been trying to find dependable sources of revenue over the last few years. It began with Discord’s subscription-based Nitro model which unlocked special features. It then expanded to allow users to gift Nitro subscriptions, financially boost servers, purchase cosmetics for their profile picture, a brief dabble into NFTs, and even purchase games.
