Sir David Attenborough, a renowned filmmaker and broadcaster, recently expressed his concerns over the use of AI technology to create false versions of himself. The 97-year-old host of “Planet Earth III” was present at its premiere in October, as shown in a photo of the event. However, what has gone viral online is an AI-generated video of Attenborough narrating a programmer’s life.
The AI version of Attenborough narrating a programmer’s life has sparked interest in AI clones and their potential use in various fields. This development has also raised ethical questions about the use of AI to create fake versions of people and how this could impact their personal brand and reputation.
In an interview, Attenborough shared his apprehension about the use of AI technology in creating false versions of himself. He expressed concern that this technology could be used to deceive others and misrepresent him, emphasizing his fear of losing control over his own voice.
While the popularity of the video is undeniable, there have been no comments from the programmer who created it. It remains to be seen how this technology will be further developed and incorporated into different industries. However, it is clear that the potential for misuse exists, and it is important for individuals and companies to consider its implications carefully before making any decisions about its implementation.
