He said that AI's ability to compromise election integrity is a "significant area of concern," Reuters reports.

Altman went on to say that AI development needs regulation.

Otherwise, guild members are prohibited from promoting projects that are affiliated with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), per strike guidelines. .

I’m very happy to be here to support this movie. I'm very proud to be here to be a visual representation of a movie that’s not part of the AMPTP and to promote the SAG leadership directive, which is an effective tactic – which is the interim agreement, Adam Driver, via statement. SAG-AFTRA went on strike in July. The Writers Guild of America went on strike in May. Both groups are seeking to negotiate better pay and protection from AI's encroachment into their industry.
