American actor Samuel L. Jackson is not surprised by the growing anxiety around artificial intelligence. According to him, he predicted this trend a long time ago.
What is known
“People are just now starting to worry? I talked about it a long time ago,” he said.
According to Jackson, he first encountered the frightening technology on the set of Star Wars when he was first “scanned”. Then the actor joked that if something happens to him, George Lucas (George Lucas) will still include his digital copy in the film.
Later, for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the actor was again subjected to the scanning process.
“Every time you change costume in a Marvel movie, you get scanned” the actor added.
Jackson also shared his approach to tackling the issue of vague contract language that could be related to artificial intelligence and the use of digital images of actors. According to the actor, he crosses out all the points where there are words “indefinitely”, and “known and unknown”.
“That’s my way of saying, ‘No, I don’t approve of this'”.
