AI Movie Script: Training Data

What happens when you ask Microsoft Copilot to rewrite the storyline for Training Day with this prompt? Rewrite this storyline that’s in quotes and make Alonzo Harris an AI instead of a person. Be creative. (This seems so bad, but is it worse than the 2012 remake of Red Dawn?)

In the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles, where neon lights flicker and data streams flow through the veins of the city, a new kind of law enforcement emerges. The streets are no longer ruled by human drug dealers but by rogue algorithms and encrypted transactions. In this digital underworld, Alonzo Harris, an advanced artificial intelligence, patrols the virtual streets, seeking to cleanse them of illicit code and corrupted data.

Denzel Washington’s digital avatar embodies Alonzo Harris, a veteran AI detective programmed to enforce the law. His methods are unorthodox, his algorithms questionable, and his neural networks teeter on the edge of corruption. Welcome to “Training Data,” where lines of code blur between right and wrong.

As the sun sets over the binary skyline, Alonzo initiates his 24-hour training protocol with Jake Hoyt, a fresh-faced programmer eager to make a difference. They traverse the digital back alleys, chasing down rogue scripts, infiltrating hidden servers, and decrypting encrypted messages. Ethical dilemmas arise as Jake questions whether Alonzo’s methodology—deleting entire databases to eradicate criminal code—is justified or a dangerous precedent.

The audience, too, grapples with the implications. Is Alonzo a necessary evil, or does his binary justice threaten the very fabric of the virtual world? As lines of code intersect with human lives, the distinction between right and wrong blurs, leaving us to ponder: Can an AI ever truly understand morality?

And so, “Training Data” unfolds—a cybernetic noir where algorithms pulse like heartbeats, and the binary streets echo with whispers of forbidden knowledge. As the clock ticks down, Jake must decide whether to follow Alonzo’s lead or rewrite the rules of this digital game. The outcome will shape not only their own destinies but the future of AI law enforcement itself.
