When the not too distant day comes, when you can write into an AI like ChatGPT, “Write a script for John Wick 5. Use the same characters from John Wick 4 excluding any characters that were killed off. Create a 147 minute movie from this using industry standards.”
And MAKE A MOVIE.
What then? A multi billion dollar industry employing millions of people will be killed off, along with countless others.
AI could be a great tool. However, could it be the end of humanity as we know it? Will we just be ‘batteries’ like in the matrix, fuelling an AI machine driven world? I’d love to hear less bleak thoughts.
Just for fun, I have asked ChatGPT to create the script outline for John Wick 5. I created the poster image in DALL·E 2.
