A Centarians Perspective of AI: Insights from a 103-Year-Old War Veteran.  In an era where technological advancements continue to reshape our world, the wisdom of the past often provides the most profound insights into our future. 

The Posterity Project: Meet Irving

Recently, ThePosterityProject.com shared a video titled "103-Year-Old Reacts to Sora A.I. Video | A Profound Perspective," which features Irving, a 103-year-old World War II veteran, reacting to OpenAI's Sora text-to-video AI solution.

This brief yet impactful video offers a glimpse into how someone from a generation vastly different from ours perceives cutting-edge AI technology.

Irving's reaction to the Sora AI video was nothing short of enlightening. As someone who has witnessed the evolution of technology from the early 20th century to the present day, Irving's perspective is both unique and invaluable.

He quickly grasped the capabilities and potential impact of OpenAI and Sora, which converts text inputs into detailed and realistic video outputs.

His ability to understand and articulate the implications of this technology highlights not only his sharp mind but also the transformative nature of AI.

Wise Perspective on the Impact of OpenAI and Sora

Irving's reflections on Sora AI were deeply profound. He expressed a mixture of awe and contemplation, recognizing the immense potential of such technology to impact humanity.

He noted that while AI like Sora can revolutionize industries and improve efficiencies, it also raises significant ethical and societal questions.

Irving's thoughts echoed the sentiments of many AI Specialists and ethicists who advocate for responsible AI development and deployment.

Bridging Generations

What makes Irving's reaction particularly special is the bridge it forms between generations. As an AI specialist and advocate, I often find myself engrossed in the technicalities and potential applications of AI. However, Irving's perspective serves as a reminder of the broader implications of our work. It highlights the importance of considering

A Personal Reflection

As someone deeply entrenched in the world of AI, I've seen firsthand the remarkable strides we've made in recent years. Yet, Irving's reflections prompt me to step back and consider the broader picture. It reminds me of the 1982 classic "Blade Runner," a film that explored the blurred lines between human and artificial life, and the ethical quandaries that arise from such advancements.

Just like the replicants in the film, Sora AI represents a leap forward in our quest to create machines that mimic human capabilities. But with this progress comes the responsibility to navigate these ethical landscapes carefully.

Drawing Conclusions

Irving's insights remind us that the true measure of technological progress lies not only in its capabilities but also in its ability to enrich and preserve the human experience. His reaction underscores the need for a balanced approach to AI development that prioritizes ethical considerations alongside technological advancements. As we move forward, we must ensure our innovations enhance human life, rather than detract from it.

Transcript of Video with Irving


I want to share this with you.


I'm going to play this video.




There's no sound.


I'll make it bigger.


You see video clips playing?


Yes. I see a kangaroo dancing.




So this is called Sora.


And this is a new technology.


Everything that you see,


was created purely by a computer, by AI technology.




There's no video production.




All they did was type a few words into a computer,


and the computer created that.


Absolutely beautiful.


This...this... It is absolutely beautiful.


This is a technology where pretty soon we’ll be able to...


Any human on earth will be able to type in a handful of words


and generate a video that looks like it was produced by the finest


special effects department or video production company in the world.


And it's all make believe.


The people you see there,


none of them are real.


None of them exist.


It's all just created in the mind of an artificial intelligence.


What do you think about that technology?


I, I think it's beautiful.


Do you have any concerns?


Thinking back about the


about technology like this?


Potential misuse, being able to generate


a lifelike reality for something that never actually happened.


Never actually existed.


But we do that all the time.


All our all our literature


did precisely that.


Created worlds for us to examine.


And it was exciting and gave meaning to us at the time.


Why shouldn't this?


It's it's an advance on the way we wrote.


We had stories and books and things like that.


That's all it is.


It takes our imagination and spreads it out.


There's nothing wrong with that.


Unless it...as long as...as long as it doesn't confuse


the moment with the reality.


I think some people are nervous that that maybe


happening in the future.




We've always made mistakes.


So far, we've survived it.


And if this thing excites the mind and


entertains the moment, nothing wrong with that.
