Talking to a dead man – how an AI invited Steve Jobs on Joe Rogan’s podcast

What would Steve Jobs think about Apple today? How would he assess the situation in the world and the technology scene? There are so many questions one would have for the visionary and genius behind the Apple corporation, but sadly Steve Jobs passed away in 2011.

Despite his death, a podcast interview with controversial podcast host Joe Rogan has now hit the web, talking to the Apple boss about everything imaginable. A wire to the afterlife? No…but the use of an extremely capable AI speech generator.

With the help of the AI Deep Fake provider, the platform has created a completely fictitious interview with Steve Jobs. The platform used old interviews and keynotes of the visionary as a basis – with astonishing results.



At some points you notice that something is not right. Be it the laughter of the interviewees or the fact that Steve Jobs usually spoke a bit slower and more paused in interviews. Despite all this, the final product is very surprising. It almost borders on irony that Steve Jobs himself once said that he hoped the world would someday be able to talk to masterminds like Aristotle thanks to technology and that he would be able to answer. We’re still a long way from a conversation with the AI-generated Jobs, but the platform shows what could be possible.

What do you think? Does this already border on manipulation or is such a conversation proof of what is behind the technology? Feel free to write it in the comments!
