Creating the voice behind Jibo
Jibo may be a robot, but the last thing the team wants is for Jibo to sound like a robot. In these two video interviews, Jibo’s design team talks about how they selected Jibo’s voice, how that then manifests itself as the voice you’ll hear when you interact with Jibo, as well as the engineering challenges of Text-To-Speech (TTS) technology and how the team solved for them.
