Ashton Kutcher Mocked After Raving About How AI Might Substitute Movie And TV Crews – The Boston Courier


Regardless of what it’s possible you’ll suppose, this isn’t a bit from “Punk’d.”

Ashton Kutcher is receiving backlash on X, previously Twitter, for his pleasure over how synthetic intelligence may probably substitute workers within the leisure trade.

The “That ’70s Show” enterprise capital agency launched a $243 million fund in 2023 to put money into synthetic intelligence start-ups. And just lately, the actor spoke about “playing around” with a beta model of OpenAI’s video era program, Sora, at an occasion in Los Angeles with former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Selection reviews.

“It’s pretty amazing,” Kutcher stated. “You can generate any footage that you want. You can create good 10, 15-second videos that look very real. It still makes mistakes. It still doesn’t quite understand physics. … But if you look at the generation of this that existed one year ago as compared to Sora, it’s leaps and bounds.”

Some footage made with Sora may “easily” be utilized in TV and movie productions, he stated, probably serving to studios lower prices.

“Why would you go out and shoot an establishing shot of a house in a television show when you could just create the establishing shot for $100? To go out and shoot it would cost you thousands of dollars,” Kutcher stated. “Action scenes of me jumping off of this building, you don’t have to have a stunt person go do it, you could just go do it [with AI].”

Kutcher added that video-generating platforms like Sora and textual content mills like ChatGPT may probably permit audiences to “render a whole movie” on their very own at house.

“You’ll just come up with an idea for a movie, then it will write the script, then you’ll input the script into the video generator and it will generate the movie,” he stated.

He continued: “What’s going to happen is there is going to be more content than there are eyeballs on the planet to consume it. So any one piece of content is only going to be as valuable as you can get people to consume it. And so, thus the catalyzing ‘water cooler’ version of something being good — the bar is going to have to go way up, because why are you going to watch my movie when you could just watch your own movie?”

Not everybody within the leisure trade is as captivated with AI seeping into the leisure trade as Kutcher.

Tyler Perry informed The Hollywood Reporter in February that after seeing Sora’s “mind-blowing” capabilities, he felt concern over how the tech may probably spoil some folks within the trade’s livelihoods.

“There’s got to be some sort of regulations in order to protect us,” he informed the leisure journal. “If not, I just don’t see how we survive.”

Perry added: “I just hope that as people are embracing this technology and as companies are moving to reduce costs and save the bottom line, that there’ll be some sort of thought and some sort of compassion for humanity and the people that have worked in this industry and built careers and lives.”

And it appears lots of people on X share the identical considerations as Perry — albeit expressed in snarkier methods.
