A.I. Copies Your Voice, Then Calls Your Bank

From a New York Times story by Emily Flitter and Stacy Cowley headlined “A.I. Copies Your Voice, Then Calls Up Your Bank”:

This spring, Clive Kabatznik, an investor in Florida, called his local Bank of America representative to discuss a big money transfer he was planning to make. Then he called again.

Except the second phone call wasn’t from Mr. Kabatznik. Rather, a software program had artificially generated his voice and tried to trick the banker into moving the money elsewhere.
