AI Generation of Audio and Video

I’m playing around with Pictory, an AI software that generates voices from text, and then selects videos that match the text.

The first version of the video was generated with no edits. I used the defaults for everything. It literally took less than one minute to create it.

I uploaded a text summary of my PIVOTAL book and this is what it generated without any intervention.

The only decision I made was to choose the voice. I chose a British accent because I lived in London and am an Anglophile.

Not bad for zero effort.

Next, I spent about 30 minutes cleaning it up a bit. I selected a different voice that was closer to mine. I changed some of the videos. And I selected higher-energy background music.

I think this is pretty impressive!
