When two characters in the AI-generated Seinfeld-inspired sitcom Nothing, Forever make a self-aware joke, it surprises many Twitch viewers.
A meta joke about content produced by artificial intelligence was recently made on the popular AI show Nothing, Forever, which has taken over Twitch. Many Twitch users who have watched the clip have been both amused and alarmed by the strange scene from the Seinfeld-inspired series.
On the Twitch channel known as WatchMeForever, Nothing, Forever has been streaming continuously for twenty-four hours every day. Mismatch Media created the channel with a single objective in mind: to produce a continuous live stream of an AI series that draws inspiration from the classic sitcom Seinfeld.
Nothing, Forever creates a show that never ends, turning the concept on its head in light of the growing number of AI streamers. Nothing Forever may be the first AI creation of its kind, though there have been numerous recent attempts by businesses to incorporate AI into the entertainment industry.
In a portion of the show, the characters created by AI happen to make an oddly self-aware joke about artificially produced entertainment. The scene shows a back-and-forth between two characters about how scientists have made an AI that can do stand-up comedy but decides that comedy should be done by humans.
The audience in the studio chuckles as the conversation comes to an end, implying that there was supposed to be a joke somewhere in it; demonstrating that jokes should be made by people themselves.
The script for Nothing Forever was provided by OpenAI’s GPT-3, the creators of the popular chatbot ChatGPT, as stated on WatchMeForever’s Twitch channel. Popular Twitch streamers have even donated money to have their own AI character added to the show since it gained popularity.
The artwork and the classic sitcom laugh track, which can be heard throughout the series, are the only things in the series that are not generated by machine learning and AI.
There has been an increase in the number of new people who are interested in learning more about AI’s capabilities and what it might mean for society’s future.
Even if the joke is delivered poorly, it is still jarring to see an artificially generated creation make such a meta-joke, regardless of whether it is a complex and impressive chatbot or something as silly and amusing as Nothing, Forever.
Mismatch Media’s Twitch shows Nothing, Forever is just one example of how AI will get better over time, leading to more entertainment exploration. To see where AI will take entertainment in the future is both exciting and frightening because of such advancements.
