Whoopi Goldberg doesn’t want ‘AI duplicating’ her: ‘One is enough’

There will never be another Whoopi Goldberg — especially one created by artificial intelligence.

The 67-year-old co-host of “The View” has publicly expressed her wish to not be duplicated by technology once she dies. Her remarks came during a conversation Thursday with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson about the growing prevalence of AI.

“AI can study everything instantly,” Tyson, 64, asserted on the daytime talk show.

“But it can also lie,” co-host Joy Behar, 80, said.

Tyson continued to explain that he feels people are wrongly grouping all of AI into one category and deeming it problematic when humanity has already welcomed a version of it into their daily lives.

“When you call Siri, you’re talking to Siri. There’s no human in that,” he said of the iPhone’s AI assistant.

“Siri is telling you how to get to grandma’s house to avoid traffic updated by the moment, and no one says, ‘Oh, my gosh,’ ” he claimed, mimicking a freak out.

“It’s the frontier of AI where people worry about AI possibly achieving consciousness or taking control of the world, and, yeah, we should be worried about that,” Tyson continued.

“But to put everything into one category [of] AI, and somehow fear the rest of what AI is doing for us, I think is misguided.”

Goldberg then declared: “I don’t want AI duplicating me. That’s what I don’t want.”The “Ghost” star’s co-host Sara Haines, 45, quickly shot back: “Oh, we could never get two of you, Whoops.”“One is enough,” Behar added with a laugh.

“But, think about what they’re doing in cinema,” Goldberg further argued her point. “They can duplicate folks, and you don’t know who’s who or which one is real.”

The Post has contacted reps for Goldberg for comment.
