How Google Plans to Clone You

Google last week acquired Phonetic Arts. The U.K.-based company specializes in technology that transforms a recorded voice into a computer-generated voice that sounds like the recording. In other words, it "captures" the tonal qualities, cadence and rhythm of how a real individual person talks, and applies them to a machine voice. The result is that a computer will be able to read any text, and it will sound convincingly like the original speaker talking.

The voice Google wants to capture is yours.
