Pennsylvania, October 11, 2017 : Being in a relationship comes with its own set of worries and setbacks. While trust is the foundation of every relationship, it is not that easy to believe everything that your partner says or does. Do you have doubts about their intentions? Do you tumble and toss all night wondering if your partner is cheating on you? Just listen to them speak.

According to a new report published in the journal Evolutionary Psychology, you can detect infidelity by the way your partner sounds.

Researchers from the Penn State University and Albright College recently conducted an interesting experiment to trace and address the relationship between speech and infidelity.

The Research

To decode a relationship between speech and infidelity, the researchers recorded the voices of men and women reading the numbers 1 to 10. This group of people included heterosexual, unmarried individuals who were or had been in committed relationships. Half of the volunteers admitted to have had sex outside their relationships, while the other half claimed to have been loyal throughout.

Assuming that the participants were telling the truth, the volunteers now comprised a group of cheaters and non-cheaters; however, no evident distinction was made between the two groups

Next, another group of volunteers were exposed to these audio recordings who were then asked to rate the likelihood that each speakers had cheated on their partner.

Shockingly, the study revealed that the volunteers were successfully able to identify the cheaters based on their voice alone.

To maintain authenticity, the researchers also manipulated the pitch of the volunteers’ samples and regardless speakers were still able to assess their infidelity.

‘These findings expand upon the idea that the human voice may be of value as a cheater detection tool and very thin slices of vocal information are all that is needed to make certain assessments about others’, the researchers said, as quoted by The Daily Mail.

What Can Voice Reveal About Cheating Partners?

While the researchers agree that they cannot specifically point out the features of the voice that leads an individual to make this assessment, they agreed that a lot can be revealed by the pitch of a person.

The experiment also found that extroverts had few silent pauses and greater voice quality, which motivated an individual to make an assessment of infidelity. According to the study, “masculine males tend to display less clarity in their speech and show phonetic patterns indicative of masculinity, which in turn could be associated with infidelity threat.”

So, you have been speaking to your partner and still haven’t found a difference in his tone or pitch. But somehow your faith in your significant other and the relationship is faltering now. And all you can wonder is,

Thanks To Artificial Intelligence, Radio Journalist Regains His Voice

The AI system slices each word read out by an individual into 100 tiny pieces

A US radio journalist who had lost his voice two years ago due to a rare neurological condition has regained the ability to speak, thanks to artificial intelligence (AI), the media reported.

Jamie Dupree, 54, a political radio journalist with Cox Media Group, got a new voice that trained a neural network to predict how he would talk, using samples from his old voice recordings, the BBC reported.

With his new voice, Dupree can now write a script and then use a free text-to-speech software programme called Balabolka on his laptop to turn it into an audio recording.

If a word or turn of phrase does not sound quite right in the recording, he can slow certain consonants or vowels down, or swap a word to one that does work, or change the pitch, and he can have a full radio story ready to go live in just seven minutes.

“This has saved my job and saved my family from a terrible financial unknown,” Dupree was quoted as saying to the BBC.

In 2016, Dupree was diagnosed with tongue protrusion dystonia — a rare neurological condition where the tongue pushes forward out of his mouth and his throat tightens whenever he wants to speak, making it impossible for him to say more than two or three words at a time.

Thanks to the new computer-generated voice, created for him by Scottish technology company CereProc, Dupree is set to come back on air, the report said.

The AI system slices each word read out by an individual into 100 tiny pieces, and does this with lots of common words until eventually it understands how basic phonetics work in that person’s voice and has an ordered sequence for all the pieces in each word.

Then, the neural network can create its own sounds and predict what the person would sound like if they were to say a series of words in conversation.

“AI techniques work quite well on small constrained problems, and learning to model speech is something deep neural nets can do really well,” Chris Pidcock, CereProc’s chief technical officer and co-founder, told the BBC. (IANS)
