If the nine seasons and 180 episodes of ‘Seinfeld’ aren’t enough for you, artificial intelligence can help. Now you have the possibility to enjoy a twitch channel that non-stop broadcasts episodes of a show inspired by the famous American sitcom.
‘Nothing, Forever’, which is what the content is called, is created thanks to a set of AI tools. There are no screenwriters, animators, or voice actors. Most of the content is generated 24/7 through machine learning algorithms.
start to see’Nothing, Forever‘ is as simple as entering the show’s Twitch channel. Although, yes, we will not find content with a quality similar to that of the sitcom in which it is inspired. We will find graphics worthy of the late nineties.
The characters, as The Verge points out, also do not carry their original names. Jerry, for example, is Larry. This may be because the creators of ‘Nothing, Forever’ obviously want to avoid having any kind of legal problems with Netflix, which bought the rights to the series in 2019.
The project, according to its creators, has been in the making for a long time. Skyler Hartle, who is Azure’s head of product, says she’s been working in secret for more than four years in this technology together with his partner Brian Habersberger to present his own research laboratory.
Thus, ‘Nothing, Forever’ has become a demonstration of the capacity of the recently created Mismatch Media. We do not know, for the moment, the details of the technology used to generate an animated series without rest, but Hartle has given some clues on Twitter.
Cloud infrastructure expert has said GPT-3 is an essential part of ‘Nothing, Forever’. We are talking about autoregressive language model from OpenAI predecessor to GPT-3.5 and from ChatGPT and to the future GPT-4 that could arrive at some point this year with a great evolution.
Although the transmission of the animated sitcom is designed to work 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, it may be interrupted at some point. From Mismatch Media they say that this may be due to certain errors that the GPT-3 API can throw, but that they are working to fix them.
After all, you may be wondering what the point of all this is. According to the lab, they are pursuing the idea of developing new ways of creating series and videogames. In all cases, using generative artificial intelligence and other machine learning technologies.
In the future, then, we may end up consuming content almost entirely generated by AI solutions. Without going any further, according to Vice, Netflix has just released an anime whose background images have been created with generative apps instead of human artists.
As we have seen, tools such as the OpenAI chatbot, which now has a paid version, DALL-E, among others, are already present in many creative processes. This phenomenon, as it was coming, is generating a debate with sectors for and against.
