AI Generating Realistic Sounds

We looked at the ability to create soundscapes in environments.  And then inserting sounds to create changes in context.   This is different, but signiticant for the same goals.

Artificial Intelligence Produces Realistic Sounds That Fool Humans  By MIT CSAIL 
" .... Researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have demonstrated an algorithm that has effectively learned how to predict sound: When shown a silent video clip of an object being hit, the algorithm can produce a sound for the hit that is realistic enough to fool human viewers.

This "Turing Test for sound" represents much more than just a clever computer trick: Researchers envision future versions of similar algorithms being used to automatically produce sound effects for movies and TV shows, as well as to help robots better understand objects' properties. .. "
