Hard pass. (Destiny)

Good points.

Number one, I think it's creepy, and I'm very pro-human.

Number two, you can train an AI to sound like you today, and there are legitimate uses for that. It's helping people who are losing their voice, for instance.

Number three, I'm against doing anything without people's permission. I think it's Bruce Willis's prerogative to sell digital rights to his likeness, but I don't love the idea of a digital Bruce taking roles away from living actors forever, if that's what happens. On the other hand, had we known Reddick was leaving us, Bungie could gone Make-A-Wish with him, bring him in, explain their plans, and maybe worked out a plan using AI, and it could have been good. It would probably involve a human reading/acting the lines, and then the magic would happen. Just as it does with motion capture for video. There are ethical issues to be sure, but in certain cases, I'd be okay with it. Maybe Reddick would have trusted Bungie, and would've wanted Zavala to keep his iconic voice.
