Researchers working to recreate voice of Oetzi the Iceman

Using software to create a synthesised voice

(ANSA) - Bolzano, February 22 - Researchers are working to recreate the voice of the 5,300-year-old mummy dubbed Oetzi the Iceman, using software developed at the National Research Council's Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies (ISTC).
    Scientists used tomographic imaging to develop a reconstruction of Oetzi's vocal tract, and a team led by ISTC Coordinator Piero Cosi is using software created at the Institute to synthesise the iceman's voice.
    Oetzi the Iceman was discovered in 1991 in a thawing glacier on the slopes of the Similaun mountain in the Oetztal Alps, and is housed at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano.
