Joe Rogan Issues Warning After AI-Generated Version Of His Podcast Surfaces

Authored by Katabella Roberts via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

Joe Rogan has warned of the growing threats posed by artificial intelligence (AI) after a version of his podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” was created entirely through the use of AI technology, sparking concern among listeners.

This is going to get very slippery, kids,” Rogan wrote on Twitter on April 11 in response to a video of the fake show shared on the social media platform by content creator Farzad Mesbahi.

The fake video is titled “Joe Rogan AI Experience Episode #001” and features “guest” Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, the creator of the artificial intelligence system ChatGPT.

A disclaimer on the video noted that the contents depict a “fictional” podcast between Rogan and Altman, with all content generated using AI language models.

“The ideas and opinions expressed in the podcast are not reflective of the thoughts of Joe Rogan or Sam Altman,” the disclaimer reads.

It adds that the use of AI technology to generate the video is “solely intended as an exploration of the capabilities of language models and should not be misconstrued as a genuine conversation between the individuals depicted.”

Fake Guest Talks Elon Musk

Throughout the fake podcast, the AI-generated host “Rogan” and AI-generated guest “Altman” discuss various subjects including the future of AI, ethical issues surrounding such advanced technology, whether or not advanced AI could take jobs away from American workers, and, rather ironically, concerns regarding fake AI content, among other issues.

At one point, “Altman” even discusses his work with Elon Musk.

Musk founded OpenAI with Altman in 2015 but has in recent months led calls for AI labs to immediately pause training systems that are more powerful than Chat GPT-4 for at least six months, citing concerns over their possible “risks to society and humanity.”

“I’m curious to know what it’s like to work with Elon Musk,” the fake Rogan asks Altman on the show. “He’s such a controversial and influential figure in the tech world and I’m sure it must be an interesting experience to work with him. Can you tell me a bit about your experience working with Elon and your thoughts on him as a person and a leader?”

It’s definitely been an interesting experience working with Elon, he’s definitely a very intelligent and driven person and he has a lot of great ideas and insights, he’s definitely someone who is always thinking about the future and how to make the world a better place and I really respect that about him,” the fake Altman responds.

“At the same time, he’s also someone who is very passionate about his beliefs and ideals and he’s not afraid to speak his mind and challenge the status quo. That can definitely be both a strength and a weakness depending on the situation,” the AI-generated Altman continues.
