The viral video of an AI version of Sir David Attenborough narrating a programmer’s life has sparked concern from the filmmaker about the potential misuse of AI technology. Attenborough, known for his educational TV programs “Life on Earth” and “The Blue Planet,” expressed his apprehension about the use of AI, stating that he is troubled by the possibility of an AI version of himself being used to deceive others.
The AI-generated video has generated interest in AI clones as well, with others indicating their intent to link this technology with wearables and incorporate it into their designs. Another programmer even shared a video of an AI-generated Steve Jobs critiquing his designs, inspired by the original AI-Attenborough video. Despite its popularity, however, the programmer who created the AI-Attenborough has not yet issued a response to requests for comment.
