OpenAI Didn’t Copy Scarlett Johansson’s Voice for ChatGPT



Article: OpenAI didn’t copy Scarlett Johansson’s voice for ChatGPT, records show - The Washington Post

A lot has been made over a voice in the new ChatGPT-4o that critics assert is a "clone" of actress Scarlett Johansson. But, records clearly show that the voice belongs to another actress hired specifically to create the voice heard.

The casting call for the actors used in the new version of ChatGPT specified "The actors should be nonunion. They should sound between 25 and 45 years old. And their voices should be warm, engaging [and] charismatic.” There was, however, no mention of any actor needing to bear a resemblance to Johanssen.

I think that this is about people considering the new technology to bear a resemblance to the film "Her," where Johnannsen played a more emotional personal assistant. I think that people simply wanted to read Johansson into whatever voice they then heard from ChatGPT-4o.

Microsoft's New AI Will Remember Everything You Do On Its PC's



Article: Microsoft’s AI chatbot will ‘recall’ everything you do on its new PCs - The Guardian

I can't imagine WHO would want this, but Microsoft is designing its new PC's to have an Artificial Intelligence that remembers everything you do. That makes it easy for me to instantly say "No" to getting one of those!

The new Windows Recall feature will enable the AI assistant to “access virtually what you have seen or done on your PC in a way that feels like having photographic memory.” Again, no thanks, Microsoft.

Kevin Costner Western "Horizon" Gets Reviewed



Review: ‘Horizon: An American Saga — Chapter 1’ Review: Sprawling Yet Thinly Spread, the First Part of Kevin Costner’s Western Epic Feels Like the Set-Up for a TV Miniseries - Variety

Review: ‘Horizon: An American Saga — Chapter One’ Review: Kevin Costner Gets Thrown From His Horse in Muddled Western Epic - The Hollywood Reporter


"Horizon, An American Saga," directed by and starring Kevin Costner, has premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. With that, the first reviews are out. And, above, you can click on the reviews from both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. While this is Part 1 of two parts, both publications were underwhelmed by what they saw.

Variety says it is unfocused, jumping around too many storylines and that it seems more like a set-up for a TV miniseries. The Hollywood Reporter also said that this feels like a miniseries that got repackaged as a theatrical film. They also echoed what Variety said in that the film seems to have too much extraneous material.

YouTube Trying to Make Ads Unskippable



Article: YouTube Pitches Massive TV Viewership, Ad Targeting at Upfront - Adweek

The ads on YouTube are INSANE! I get it that they're trying to force them on people any way they can. But, I think that more people are just going to stop watching instead of sitting through them. But, YouTube is trying to find ways to make people sit through them, no matter what. It's fine having a few ads, but when you get three minutes of ads in an eight-minute video, that is just crazy.
