German Magazine Editor Fired Over Schumacher Interview

From a New York Times story by Amanda Holpuch headlined “German Magazine Editor is Fired Over A.I. Michael Schumacher Interview”:

The publisher of a German magazine that ran what it described as a “world sensation” interview with the retired Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher, but used responses written by artificial intelligence, has fired the magazine’s editor and apologized to Mr. Schumacher’s family.

Mr. Schumacher, 54, retreated from public life after he suffered a brain injury in a skiing accident nearly a decade ago, and his family has guarded his privacy fiercely since then. The front cover of the April 15 issue of the celebrity magazine Die Aktuelle promoted the interview with Mr. Schumacher, who is German, as his first since the accident: “das erste interview.”
