Ottawa: Voice imitation can be fun but a perfect cloning can turn creepy. Now, a Montreal-based AI company called Lyrebird has built a software that is capable of cloning any voice.

The technology has already helped people including Pat Quinn, founder of the Ice Bucket Challenge who suffers from a motor neuron disease which took his voice, Cnet reported.

Lyrebird's voice cloning algorithm is capable of not only mimicking human voice but also use some real-world audio samples to add an emotional aspect to sound even more realistic.
