In a recent interview with Complex, actor and writer Donald Glover expressed his perspective on the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) in entertainment and art As he discuss the opening of his new creative studio “Gilga”
While acknowledging the reasons for caution, he believes that AI has the potential to be beneficial if used in the right way. Glover understands the fear surrounding AI, but he also sees the possibilities it brings. He encourages individuals to come together and embrace the opportunities that AI presents. Rather than being fearful of AI taking over jobs, he suggests that it is the people who are skilled in AI who will shape the future employment landscape.
While Glover believes that legislation should be in place to address potential risks, he doubts that it will happen proactively.

However, he remains optimistic, encouraging people to focus AI efforts on meaningful and constructive works that align with societal needs.
Throughout the interview, Glover emphasizes the need to steer AI towards positive and beneficial applications. He believes that as AI becomes more integrated into our lives, humanity will navigate the challenges and find ways to harness its potential for the greater good.
