Google has created an AI that sounds indistinguishable from humans

Peter Kirn holds two coins between his fingers to create sounds with a synthesizer in Berlin, July 19, 2012. Kirn makes music with an unusual instrument - his own body. The Kentucky native pinches two electrically charged pennies connected to a laptop, measuring the electrical currents of his body and synthesise them into melodic sound. The laptop screen shows a visualisation of the sound he is creating.   REUTERS/Thomas Peter (GERMANY - Tags: ENTERTAINMENT SOCIETY)
