Sir David Attenborough, the 97-year-old filmmaker, expressed his concerns about an AI version of himself that went viral after being created by a programmer. The video, which shows an AI clone of Attenborough narrating a programmer’s life, has sparked interest in the use of AI clones and their potential to be linked with wearables.
Attenborough, known for his educational TV programs “Life on Earth” and “The Blue Planet,” shared his apprehension about the use of AI technology to create false versions of himself. He is concerned that this technology could be used to misrepresent him and take away control over his own voice.
The popularity of the video has raised questions about the ethics and implications of creating AI clones, particularly when it comes to using them for personal gain or deception. While some have praised the technological advancements behind the video, others have expressed concern about its potential impact on society and individuals’ privacy.
As the debate continues around AI clones and their potential uses, it remains to be seen how they will shape our future.
