He soon realises AI not only matches his skills but even surpasses him in empathy and understanding of human emotions”.The screenplay for the film is credited to ChatGPT 4.0.

The latest version of the OpenAI technology, GPT-4o, launched in May.Speaking to the Daily Beast, Luisi said that the premiere had been cancelled after it received 200 online complaints, but a private screening for the cast and crew would still go ahead in London.I appreciate independent cinemas are struggling everywhere and it’s hard to say no to private hire income.

Still, the decision not to screen a film “entirely written by AI” should come easy to a place like the Prince Charles. A shame.
