Artificial intelligence can now map people's faces into preexisting videos. It can create its own images, based on nothing but a text prompt. It's getting better, and thus creepier to sentient organisms. Podcast.ai is the latest example. Each episode is rendered using play.ht's voices, with transcripts that are generated using language models to create almost believable podcasts featuring people who have never recorded together, and in the case of the Joe Rogan interviewing Steve Jobs episode, passed away over a decade ago and probably never would have agreed to such a thing in the first place. Welcome to Spooky Season.
