Artificial intelligence has long been a polarizing concept, with some finding it exciting and innovative, while others remain leery of the technology’s potential to make humans obsolete.
As time moves on, it seems more and more people are joining the latter group.
Ironically, Hollywood — a paradigm of progressivism — seems to be growing increasingly fearful of what AI could mean for the actors and writers in the industry.
Glenn Beck notes that one of the things that makes "Mission Impossible" special is that “[Tom Cruise] was really in … the helicopter,” and he really rode an actual motorcycle off an actual cliff.
“That adds something” that can’t be replicated by AI, he says.
Stu Burguiere references a tweet from Justine Bateman, actor, writer, producer, and sister of famous actor Jason Bateman, in which she warned against the use of “AI-written scripts” and “digitally scanned actors — image and/or voice.”
“Some talent agencies,” Bateman says, “are already recruiting actors to be scanned.”
Not only does this degrade the actors’ talents and abilities, but it also opens a Pandora’s box of possibilities.
With this new technology, viewers can request a film starring “Billy Murray” that’s “about a panda and a unicorn who saved the world in a rocket ship,” Bateman writes.
But it doesn’t stop there.
According to Bateman’s statement, viewers can also request to have themselves scanned and inserted into movies so that “their face [is] on Luke Skywalker’s body and their ex-wife’s face [is] on Darth Vader’s body.”
“This is going to be a really weird world,” Stu says.
