Hollywood legend Tom Hanks discusses the potential future of AI-generated performances and their impact on the acting industry. Hanks emphasizes the need for Hollywood to adapt intellectual property rules before extensively utilizing AI in films.

Hanks views AI as an opportunity to transcend time and preserve an actor’s legacy, allowing performances to continue even after their passing. The actor envisions the possibility of recreating oneself at any age using AI or deep fake technology, blurring the lines between real and artificial performances.

As AI-generated performances are still far from perfect, Hanks believes it will sooner or later become indistinguishable from reality. Legal concerns arise regarding the use of AI to replace actors, prompting discussions among Hollywood stars, guilds, agencies, and legal firms about intellectual property rights.
