In October, Sir David Attenborough, 97, made an appearance at the premiere of his BBC documentary “Planet Earth III,” as seen in a photo from the event. Meanwhile, an AI version of Attenborough narrating a programmer’s life has gone viral online.
The filmmaker has expressed his personal dismay about the video and shared his apprehension about the potential use of AI. He is concerned that AI technology could be used to create false versions of himself, emphasized by his fear of being misrepresented and not having control over his own voice. The AI-generated video has sparked interest in AI clones as well, with others indicating their intent to link this technology with wearables and incorporate it into their designs.
Despite the popularity of the video, the programmer who created the AI-Attenborough has not yet issued a response to requests for comment.
