We’ve all heard of the hit TV show Seinfeld, and the comedy genius of Jerry Seinfeld. But what happens when an AI-generated “Seinfeld” parody streams on Twitch? Unfortunately, it has now been suspended after the computer rendering of Jerry Seinfeld launched into a transphobic stand-up comedy routine.
This AI-generated “Seinfeld” parody, called “Nothing, Forever,” has been streaming on Twitch since December. It featured grainy, blocky computer-generated versions of Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer, whose voices sounded choppy and robotic. But the AI Jerry Seinfeld went too far with his stand-up comedy routine, making transphobic and homophobic jokes.
Twitch has suspended “Nothing, Forever” for 14 days, and the show’s creator reportedly plans to appeal the suspension. The creator said that the insensitive material might have been caused by a temporary switch from using OpenAI’s GPT-3 Davinci model to its Curie model, which lacks the same level of content moderation.
This incident serves as a reminder of the power of AI and the need for caution when using AI-generated content. AI can be used to create amazing and entertaining content, but it can also be used to spread offensive and insensitive material. It’s important to be mindful of the potential consequences of using AI-generated content and to take steps to ensure that it is used responsibly.
So, while this incident serves as a reminder of the power of AI, it also serves as a reminder of the importance of being mindful of the potential consequences of using AI-generated content. We must use AI responsibly to ensure that it is not used to spread offensive and insensitive material.
