2022 was the year of synthetic media. The mainstreaming of deepfakes and voice clones, along with the rise of text-to-image AI models, assured synthetic media of a breakout year. Then ChatGPT came along. It changed the conversation entirely and consumed news media and social media cycles for weeks. The GPT-3.5 model was better than expected, and the fine-tuning that delivered ChatGPT showed that large language models were ready to up end a lot of assumptions about what technology in general, and AI in particular, can do.
Joining host Bret Kinsella to break down the top synthetic media news of 2022 are Rupal Patel of Veritone, Michal Stanislawek of Utter.one and Hearme.ai, and Eric Schwartz of Voicebot.ai.
