Sir David Attenborough, 97, recently made an appearance at the premiere of his BBC documentary “Planet Earth III” in October. In addition to this event, a viral video has emerged online featuring an AI version of Attenborough narrating a programmer’s life.
Attenborough, known for his educational TV programs “Life on Earth” and “The Blue Planet,” has expressed his dismay about the potential of AI technology being used to create false versions of himself. This concern comes after he witnessed an AI-generated voice narrating a programmer’s life in real-time.
The filmmaker is particularly worried that AI technology could be used to misrepresent him and take control of his own voice. He believes that it is essential for individuals to have control over their own image and reputation in the digital age.
The popularity of the video has sparked interest in AI clones as well, with others indicating their intention to incorporate this technology into their designs. Additionally, another programmer has shared a video of an AI-generated Steve Jobs critiquing his designs, inspired by the original AI-Attenborough video. Despite the viral nature of the video, no response from the creator of the AI-Attenborough has been issued yet.
