Star Trek: Picard cast spills on the tech that freaks them out
TV and Movies
What other tech scares you?
Deep fake's pretty scary.
I mean that's a perfect example of not taking the consequences into [UNKNOWN].
You get so caught up in the coolness, in the amazingness Of the thing you just figure out how to do that in itself feels like sufficient cause for sharing it with the world and that's where the problem occurs for it when you release something when you share something with the world without actually thinking through what it's going to do.
To the world.
I'm ambivalent about transparency.
I mean, I think that there are upsides to it.
But I think it's certainly going to change the world we live in when there are no secrets anywhere for anyone.
I think for me, the scariest thing is how the internet can be weaponized.
Defect technology terrifies me.
That's a very scary thing and It's weird, because we use a version of that algorithm sometimes in the de-ageing process for actors or for ageing them up.
But, again, in the wrong hands, that's just a weapon.
People who didn't do things, they're on camera having done them.
And that's quite scary, and I can see that being a huge, huge problem.
I think it's scary when people have access to your technology you're not aware of.
On my long drive here today Everyone's talking about the election, of course, because [UNKNOWN] they haven't talked about that enough.
But now they said, there's Middle East influence, and the Russian thing as if that's now just commonplace we've just accepted.
They're [UNKNOWN] they're going to influence the election.
And that's so scary, right?
Because it's not something you can see.
So I think technology you can see is one thing.
To me, it's the technology you can't see.
Like what's happening.
What can they see through the camera of my computer, on my phone?
Are they tracking me?
Why does it always know what I just try-
The answer is yes is to everything you-
Rigjt, and that's really scary.
And beyond AI, is there any other tech that scares you?
Listen, crispr is incredible Crispr is one of the greatest innovations in our time.
But it's a genetic editing, so yeah, that's a concern for me.
[LAUGH] I mean, the idea that we could pick and choose the best type of humans, obviously, hasn't had a great past.
[LAUGH] Any time that people say, we know how to do this, we know how to pick the best humans, I'm like, yeah, really?
[LAUGH] So yeah, I would say CRISPR is a concern As is anything that seeks out the betterment of humanity without taking into account what makes us good.
And you know how transparent we are.
I mean I stay away from the Siris and the Alexas of this world because.
You think you do.
It's in your pocket right now my friend.
[LAUGH] She's already here.
It's the fact.
I mean, you could say the same about even the even emails, I mean everything, you're just how exposed and how vulnerable we are to that.
So it's like do you just embrace it and just give into it or do you make sure that it all goes back to who's in charge of what it's being used for.
But definitely the expo hall exposed I guess we are lack of privacy.
What technology scares you?
AI is a little scary.
I mean, I don't know.
I mean, it's all a little tee too for me.
Face recognition's kinda creepy.
Yeah, that one's a little [SOUND].
Where they They can just see exactly who you are by a quick shot, that's kind of creepy, [LAUGH] yeah.
It's funny, I know, I have my brother in-law always hates the fact that there's all these cameras around, like Big Brother is watching.
I actually quite like it cuz I feel like you can track me if anything happens, God forbid, you'd know where I am.
So I first that that would be a scary thing to have, like London they have so many cameras all over.
But I think that there's some things sort of secure about that.
It makes me feel a little secure.
I don't know what.
Something I'd say cyber security.
I don't think there's.
In terms of where we are moving in terms of the internet.
Our governments are really up to up to speed on that.
Identity theft, credit card fraud.
Your digital fingerprint is online forever.
And I don't think we all understand the ramifications or impact of that yet because it's fairly new to us.
I mean, the generation behind me will probably get a better sense of it because they're growing up with the Internet being a thing.
I grew up Before the internet was really a thing, so I do not think I really understand what it is.
