Keira Knightley is planning a protection towards the looming threat of Artificial Intelligence.
The 38-year-old actress revealed her plans to get a copyright for her face, barring the non-consensual use of her face facilitated by machine studying.
“At the moment for actresses, the concern is about the voice, and they’re trying to protect the voice-over industry,” the British actress shared in assist of the continued WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
“I don’t know where that’s at but I know that’s the negotiation. But I imagine the next step will be to copyright my face,” Knightley continued, noting the upcoming period of expertise has the “potential to be catastrophic.”
“I hope governments come in and regulate it,” she added.
Hollywood actors and writers joined forces earlier this yr in a primary “double strike” in over six many years in a bid for higher work setting, higher pay, and safety towards being substitute by AI.
It had beforehand been reported that streaming platforms, together with Amazon, Netflix, and Apple had been proposing to use AI to superimpose actors’ faces over a stunt double with the assistance of digital scans for future tasks.
