Sir David Attenborough, a renowned filmmaker at the age of 97, recently appeared at the premiere of his BBC documentary “Planet Earth III”. Meanwhile, an AI version of him narrating a programmer’s life has gone viral after being shared online.
The filmmaker has expressed his dismay about the video and is concerned about the potential misuse of AI technology. He fears that an AI version of himself could be used to deceive others and emphasizes his fear of being misrepresented and losing control over his own voice.
The popularity of the video has sparked interest in AI clones as well, with others expressing their intention to incorporate this technology into wearables and other designs. Another programmer has even created an AI-generated Steve Jobs critiquing his designs, inspired by the original AI-Attenborough video. Despite its popularity, the programmer who created the AI-Attenborough has not yet responded to requests for comment.
