QuoteEarlier this month, the US Copyright Office deemed an award-winning piece of AI art ineligible for copyright, citing its lack of human authors.
QuoteThe Creator eventually puts us in a position to sympathize with AI, and I think some people will feel conflicted about that since AI is currently a threat to livelihoods in all walks of life. That said, is this AI species really just a stand-in for anyone who's been otherized or marginalized or oppressed?I started writing this in 2018 and AI was a distant dream, like flying cars and things. So, yeah, it's totally a metaphor or an allegory for people who are different to us. That was the intention. But things have changed very quickly, and there are super fascinating philosophical questions that come up when you deal with AI. So we tried not to shy away from it in the movie. And now, in 2023, it's very, very timely in that sense. It's funny because we shot scenes in Bangkok of people protesting AI with signs and things like that, and when we were filming it, I felt a bit embarrassed. I thought, "People aren't going to really do this. This is just a little science fiction silliness for this part of the movie." And then, just as we were finalizing the movie and doing all the post and sound stuff, we would drive past the studios as everyone was on strike. So we saw all the signs and AI picketing, and it was very surreal. It was like, "Man, this has come a lot faster than anyone predicted." And when you play around with chat GPT, it's very convincing. It's hard to do that and not think someone is there on the other end. It doesn't quite make sense. And anyone who tries to predict what's going to happen over the next five years is going to look a bit silly when that prediction is played back. But things are definitely going to change.
Quote from: WiredHe might not look like it, but Butterick is the unlikely driving force behind the first wave of class-action lawsuits against big artificial-intelligence companies. He's on a mission to make sure writers, artists, and other creative people have control over how their work is used by AI.
