AI Startup Bans Account Blamed for Biden Audio Deepfake (



from the tough-situation dept.

An anonymous reader shares a report: The creator of an audio deepfake of US President Joe Biden urging people not to vote in this week’s New Hampshire primary has been suspended by ElevenLabs, according to a person familiar with the matter. ElevenLabs’ technology was used to make the deepfake audio, according to Pindrop Security, a voice-fraud detection company that analyzed it.

ElevenLabs was made aware this week of Pindrop’s findings and is investigating, the person said. Once the deepfake was traced to its creator, that user’s account was suspended, said the person, asking not to be identified because the information isn’t public. ElevenLabs, a startup that uses artificial intelligence software to replicate voices in more than two dozen languages, said in a statement that it couldn’t comment on specific incidents. But added, “We are dedicated to preventing the misuse of audio AI tools and take any incidents of misuse extremely seriously.”
