That AI generated Seinfeld show has already been suspended from Twitch


Nothing, Forever (opens in new tab), a Twitch experiment to create a constantly-streaming, algorithmically generated pastiche of Seinfeld, has been hit with a two-week suspension from Twitch. The exact cause has not been confirmed by Twitch, but according to Motherboard (opens in new tab), the show’s fans and creators believe it was over main character Larry Feinberg’s AI-generated jokes about gay and trans people (opens in new tab) in a recent stream.

“There’s like 50 people here and no one is laughing. Anyone have any suggestions?” The digital Feinberg asked in one of Nothing, Forever’s riffs on Seinfeld’s iconic standup openings. “I’m thinking about doing a bit about how being transgender is actually a mental illness, or how all liberals are secretly gay and want to impose their will on everyone.”
