In January, US President Joe Biden called on New Hampshire Democrats to skip the primaries.
US President Joe Biden and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decide to regulate robocalls using artificial intelligence
Regulating artificial voices in robocalls
Robocalls using artificially generated voices will now be regulated by the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, according to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Thus, the FCC makes such voices illegal for making calls.
Research on a fake call from Joe Biden
According to the results of a study on a fake call from Joe Biden, It was determined that the voice was generated using the ElevenLabs tool. The call was made from a suspicious telecom provider, Lingo, which is registered with many other telecom companies. The FCC notes that this company has a long history of making illegal calls.
Telephone Consumer Protection Act
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act prohibits the use of artificial or pre-recorded voices in most non-emergency calls without the caller's consent and provides penalties for violation.
