Tag: AND THAT’S A HUGE PROBLEM

SEEING IS NO LONGER BELIEVING AS DEEPFAKE VIDEOS CREATED WITH AI MAKES FANTASY INDISTINGUISHABLE FROM REALITY, AND THAT’S A HUGE PROBLEM

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Imagining how a deep fake video could quickly create a very scary real-world scenario is not hard.Say, for instance, a video of a world leader, such as Vladimir Putin, pops up on the internet declaring war on another country, or, maybe, the head of a major company announcing his or her abrupt resignation, putting the markets in a tailspin.Videos like that can spread like wildfire before fact checkers, journalists, and governments even have the chance to authenticate it.And the U.S. government is paying attention. Deep fakes were a topic at the recent worldwide threats hearing in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
