This coming week, Lainey Wilson, the CMA 2023 Entertainer of the Year, will talk at a House subcommittee meeting in Los Angeles about how artificial intelligence is being used wrongly in entertainment.
Legendary Appearance: Wilson claimed "Female Vocalist of the Year" and four other CMAs, and she was also nominated for two Grammys
On Feb. 2, at 9 a.m., she will appear before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet at a field meeting.
Wilson was at the center of a small generative AI scandal last summer when online ads for weight loss products used the country star's picture.
Wilson's fans were warned not to fall for the scam.
AI was a big part of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes last summer, and its questionable use is still in the news. For example, on Thursday, George Carlin's estate sued the makers of a deepfake comedy special that used his material and face.
It's not always a good idea for politicians and celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Sarah Silverman, and Mike Huckabee to go to court over AI problems.
The group will talk about "how Congress can support responsible innovation in the uses of artificial intelligence technology and address growing concerns about the misuse of AI technology, especially when it comes to people's voices, likenesses, and other identifying traits."
