Some of the examples in this article are interesting (including especially the recasting of the movie Alien into the 1950s). Bryan Alexander concludes, "we are culturally responding to generative AI with a great deal of creativity, even when we oppose it. Some of us are using AI to make art, while others fear that very thing. Again, as I've been saying, we are deeply divided about generative AI, and that division will play out across all kinds of human domains including, and also beyond culture." I think the most problematic uses of AI in culture are when the real and artificial are blended - as, for example, the live video superimposes advertisements onto the field, ice or background of the sporting event.
