A German magazine has used artificial intelligence to simulate an interview with former Formula One driver Michael Schumacher and now his family has said they will take legal action over the matter..
the german magazine Die Aktuelle published on April 14 promised “the first interview!” with Schumacher since he suffered a serious brain injury in a skiing accident in 2013.
Although the magazine added the phrase “sounds deceptively real” on the cover, the article contained a number of alleged quotes that were generated by AI, which was not revealed until the end of the article, much to the chagrin of many fans.
To actually print on your cover “World Sensation!” “First Interview” and even on the pages only give little hints that it was an AI, it’s absolutely crazy

AI has recently been used to impersonate other celebrities. A clip of rapper Kanye West in which he pretended to cover Drake’s hit “Hold On, We’re Going Home” recently went viral on Twitter, but the audio was actually generated by AI.
The fact that this AI generated audio of Kanye West doing a cover of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” sounds just like the real Kanye is scary and exciting.
The scary part: AI will never be this worst again.
Exciting part: this could unlock new doors of creativity. pic.twitter.com/u5RfmpKTcT
