Peacock released yesterday the official trailer for its upcoming original sequence, “Mrs. Davis,” a peculiar tackle synthetic intelligence and a nun (performed by “G.L.O.W.” actress Betty Giplin) that wishes to defeat it. (Or her?)
The first 4 episodes of “Mrs. Davis” will premiere on April 20 and the opposite 4 episodes shall be released weekly.
The show options Sister Simone, a nun that’s approached by the users of Mrs. Davis, a sentient AI that appears to be worshipped like a machine-learning cult chief. Mrs. Davis’ billions of followers put on earbuds to speak with the AI. You may also evaluate Mrs. Davis to Siri or ChatGPT… but it surely’s truly all-knowing.

The AI will ultimately ask you, “Are you ready to join me on a quest full of adventure and fulfillment?” If the user selects “Yes,” then they’re directed to Peacock’s sign-up web page.
The sci-fi sequence couldn’t have come at a greater time, given the wave of AI-powered instruments. Can you think about what Simone would take into consideration all this discuss of ChatGPT?
