Tom Hanks has warned his followers on social media that an advertisement for a dental plan using his likeness without his consent was fraudulent and based on an artificial intelligence version of him. “Beware!!” Mr. Hanks wrote on Instagram over a screen shot of the apparent ad. “There’s a video out there promoting some dental plan with an AI version of me. I have nothing to do with it.” The New York Times says it was unclear what company had used Mr. Hanks’s likeness or what products it was promoting. Mr. Hanks did not tag the company or mention it by name, and there was no evidence of the video anywhere on social media.
