Ms Schick spoke of AI as ‘limitless’ as she appeared on the radio programme this morning, saying we’re coming into a brand new period of content creation that’s powered by synthetic intelligence. 

‘All the things you’ve seen with regards to particular results in motion pictures earlier than which might have been intensely laborious, intensely costly to create, AI goes to democratise that, it’s going to make it higher, sooner and cheaper.
