Voice copying algorithms found able to dupe voice recognition devices
[techxplore.com]

A team of researchers at the University of Chicago has found that voice-copying algorithms have advanced to the point that they are now capable of fooling voice recognition devices, and in many cases, people listening to them. The group has posted a paper on the arXiv preprint server that describes two well-known voice copying algorithms.
-

They tested two of the most well-known voice copying algorithms against both human and voice recognition devices and found that the algorithms have improved to the point that they are now able to fool both.
-
Two hundred volunteers also listened to pairs of recordings and tried to determine if the voices were from the same person—the results were mixed, but overall, the algorithms were able to fool the volunteers more often than not—and especially so when the voice samples were of famous people.

Hate to say it, this will be nothing but trouble for the future of...everything.

Voice recognition has been a poor biometric for years. So nothing really new here except it will become far more common.
