Scarlett Johansson hired lawyers to push back on ‘eerily similar’ OpenAI voice

Actress Scarlett Johansson was frustrated after finding that an AI voice used for OpenAI’s chatbot sounded too much like her, which led her to seek legal help for its removal. OpenAI had initially asked her to provide a voice for their chatbot but ended up releasing a voice named Sky that closely resembled hers.

OpenAI replaced the voice with another one called Juniper and stressed that their voices are not meant to imitate specific individuals. This incident highlights the increasing concern over AI’s capability to imitate human voices and appearance, resulting in legal disputes in Hollywood. Furthermore, Scarlett Johansson has been engaged in legal matters in the entertainment industry, including a lawsuit against Walt Disney Co.
