This weird AI Steve Jobs interview is creeping us out

Which headline-grabbing tech guru would you choose as the debut guest to launch a new podcast? Musk? Bezos? The Zuck? How about Steve Jobs? Well, thanks to AI, a podcast has pulled off that impossible-sounding coup, and the results are predictably bizarre.

The podcast used an AI model to resurrect Apple's celebrated co-founder and pair him with an AI-generated version of the living comedian Joe Rogan. The result is a rambling interview that takes in Jobs' studies, the art of storytelling, Microsoft's bad taste and the spiritual history of the Indian subcontinent. Yes, AI Steve Jobs talks a lot (to see how AI is revolutionising art and design, see our piece on how to use DALL-E 2).
