The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has initiated the Voice Cloning Challenge, with a top prize of $25,000.

The Voice Cloning Challenge invites innovators to submit their ideas to protect consumers from potential misuse.

The Voice Cloning Challenge is one part of a larger strategy. The risks posed by voice cloning and other AI technology cannot be addressed by technology alone. It is also clear that policymakers cannot count on self-regulation alone to protect the public. At the FTC, we will be using all of our tools—including enforcement, rulemaking, and public challenges like this one—to ensure that the promise of AI can be realized for the benefit, rather than to the detriment of, consumers and fair competition.
