Actors are really worried about the use of AI by movie studios – they may have a point

Dominic Lees, University of Reading

Film and television actors in the US came out on strike on July 14, causing Hollywood productions to shut down. The action has also had an impact on US films shooting in the UK: director Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice 2 has “paused” and the production of Deadpool 3, filming at Pinewood Studios with stars Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, has been stood down.

The dispute is about remuneration for actors, very few of whom enjoy the high income of Hollywood stars. But an additional argument between the union, SAG-AFTRA, and film producers is about the use of artificial intelligence (AI). Actors are fearful of the impact of AI on their careers.

What Large Language Models (or LLMs) are, how they are developed, and how they work.

April 19, 2023 /Technology/ — A large language model (LLM) is a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that is trained on a massive amount of text data. This data can be anything from books and articles to social media posts and code. LLMs are able to learn the statistical relationships between words and phrases, which allows them to generate text, translate languages, write different kinds of creative content, and answer your questions in an informative way. LLMs can be used for a variety of tasks, including: Continue reading

AI will soon become impossible for humans to comprehend – the story of neural networks tells us why

David Beer, University of York

In 1956, during a year-long trip to London and in his early 20s, the mathematician and theoretical biologist Jack D. Cowan visited Wilfred Taylor and his strange new “learning machine”. On his arrival he was baffled by the “huge bank of apparatus” that confronted him. Cowan could only stand by and watch “the machine doing its thing”. The thing it appeared to be doing was performing an “associative memory scheme” – it seemed to be able to learn how to find connections and retrieve data.
