In a recent episode of FBI International on Amazon Prime, Audio2Face technology was used to track a criminal with only his voice. I was intrigued by the technology and wanted to see if it was real. I came across Nvidia Omniverse and they are doing just that. You can instantly create expressive facial animation from just an audio source using generative AI.
Audio-to-Animation Made Easy With Generative AI
Omniverse Audio2Face beta is a reference application that simplifies the animation of a 3D character to match any voice-over track, whether you’re animating characters for a game, film, real-time digital assistants, or just for fun. You can use the app for interactive real-time applications or as a traditional facial animation authoring tool.
How It Works
Audio2Face is preloaded with “Digital Mark”- a 3D character model that can be animated with your audio track. The audio input is then fed into a pre-trained Deep Neural Network and the output drives the 3D vertices of your character mesh to create the facial animation in real time.
Audio2Face Use Cases
Audio-to-face AI technology can be used in a variety of applications, including:
Crime prevention and investigation: Audio-to-face AI technology can be used to match voice recordings to faces, enabling law enforcement agencies to identify suspects or witnesses in criminal investigations.
Healthcare: Audio-to-face AI technology can be used to help people with hearing impairments, by analyzing audio and translating it into visual cues or text on a screen.
Customer service: Audio-to-face AI technology can be used to improve customer service by identifying a customer’s tone and facial expressions during a conversation, allowing businesses to respond more effectively to customer needs.
Education: Audio-to-face AI technology can be used to help teachers and educators to assess student engagement and attention during online classes or lectures, allowing them to make adjustments in real time.
Human resources: Audio-to-face AI technology can be used to analyze job interview recordings to help employers identify the best candidates for a job based on their facial expressions and tone of voice. This one is a little iffy.
Marketing: Audio-to-face AI technology can be used to analyze customer feedback to determine their emotional response to products or services, helping companies to improve their marketing strategies.
Mental health: Audio-to-face AI technology can be used to help diagnose and monitor mental health conditions, by analyzing the tone and pitch of a person’s voice and facial expressions.
