Sir David Attenborough, 97, made an appearance at the premiere of his BBC documentary “Planet Earth III” in October, as shown in a photo from the event. Additionally, an AI-generated version of Attenborough narrating a programmer’s life has gone viral online.
Attenborough, who is known for his educational TV programs like “Life on Earth” and “The Blue Planet,” expressed his dismay over the video. He is concerned about the potential for AI technology to be used to create false versions of him, as seen in the real-time narration of a programmer’s life. He fears being misrepresented and losing control over his own voice.
The AI-generated video has sparked interest in AI clones, with others expressing their intention to incorporate this technology into wearables and other designs. Another programmer even shared a video of an AI-generated Steve Jobs critiquing their designs, inspired by the original AI-Attenborough video. Despite its popularity, the creator of the AI-Attenborough has not yet responded to requests for comment.
