Shattering reality: Is AI-generated content already adequate to idiot the typical person?

Published:

A world where AI-generated videos and pictures can dupe the general public on a big scale — a fear of the “Godfather of AI” — has grow to be a reality, in line with a synthetic intelligence author and podcast host.

“That moment is already here,” said cognitive scientist Gary Marcus, who hosts the AI-centric podcast, “Humans vs Machines with Gary Marcus.” “The techniques will only recover and higher over the approaching years, but they’re already adequate that they will probably idiot at the very least among the people among the time.”

Computer scientist Geoffrey Hinton, who’s widely considered the “Godfather of AI” and helped develop systems utilized in software like ChatGPT, recently told The Latest York Times he feared AI-generated photos, videos and text will soon flood the web. The common person, in consequence, will “not have the option to know what’s true anymore,” he said.

Rapid AI advancement over the past few months has made it easier to create deepfakes, hyperrealistic but fake content. Marcus pointed to a recent Republican National Committee ad arguing what the world would seem like if President Biden. It used AI to generate realistic visuals of China invading Taiwan, 80,000 illegal aliens surging the southern border and skyrocketing crime and drug use forcing San Francisco to declare martial law.

“The RNC made a fairly compelling ad for the 2024 election that used deepfakes and looked pretty plausible,” said Marcus, who led Uber’s AI labs from 2016-2017 and co-authored the book “Rebooting AI: Constructing Artificial Intelligence We Can Trust.”

Other viral deepfake examples include “Heart on my Sleeve,” an AI-crafted song that cloned the voices and sorts of Drake and the Weeknd, and a fake photo of Pope Francis sporting a big puffer coat.

Meanwhile, NewsGuard, which rates news and knowledge sites, recently identified 49 news and knowledge sites that were either totally or mostly AI-generated. The web sites, in line with NewsGuard, used an indicator of text created by artificial intelligence: “bland language and repetitive phrases.”

Marcus said the May 1 report further supported his belief that Hinton’s fear, that AI-generated content would frequently deceive the typical person, “is largely here.”
