Former NBA player Brandon Hunter’s death at just 42 should be news on its own. But thanks to a horrid artificial intelligence-generated obituary, that’s what we’re talking about instead.
There’s another tick in the “down with AI” box. But, as an obit writer for the Tampa Bay Times, which Poynter owns, I do wonder if there isn’t a real space for this technology in a different kind of obituary — the one that the family writes through the funeral home or for their local newspaper.
Hold on, now. Hear me out.
