Since the last century, there has been great technical interest in computer voice generation, which has undergone constant evolution. Today, we see that the new methods of generation with machine learning obtain results of great realism. This opens up a world of possibilities for use both in our daily lives and for artistic creation.

Voctro Labs' team of researchers develops projects at the forefront of the use of computer-created or recreated voices applied to music and creativity. In this talk we will see what kind of singing patterns we want to model with these systems, and how we can use them in a context of artistic production, or in other applications for the general public.

Finally, a debate we cannot leave out: the ethical and cultural implications of the generation of voices with artificial intelligence. For example, does it make sense to recreate Michael Jackson's voice?
