Football legend, male model and role model David Beckham has lent his skills to raising awareness of malaria - which kills a child every two minutes - before, for example in this 2018 short film by renowned director Ridley Scott: https://youtu.be/NgWBTC4O9Ew. In the main picture 2019 campaign, Becks 'speaks' in nine different languages to get us all signing a voice petition. Does this campaign get your attention? And if so, why? Perhaps you're worried about how the kind of voice tech used here could also be deployed to spread fake information by literally putting words into people's mouths? Or is it just a very effective use of tech for good? If you're interested in how artificial intelligence (AI) helped Becks 'speak' all these languages, here's the three-minute backstage video: https://youtu.be/CF_e0kMCW2o

Keywords: David Beckham speaks nine languages, Synthesia, voice faking, deepfake, malaria must die, voice tech, R/GA London
