The zero-shot voice cloning refers to a revolutionary technology that makes the process of voice cloning much less time-consuming. With this solution, the voice can be replicated with a minimal amount of specific audio training data or recordings required.
The underlying principle of this innovation lies in utilizing a pre-trained AI model, which operates an extensive dataset of pre-recorded speeches from multiple speakers. This model captures the general characteristics of the given voices, such as tone, timbre, modulation, etc. As a result, it becomes possible to generate a realistic and natural-sounding speech of a specific person based on just a small piece of recording, leveraging its similarity to the preliminarily processed training data.
