Deepfakes — The Danger Of Artificial Intelligence That We Will Learn To Manage Better

Posted by in categories: education, robotics/AI

Deepfakes are scarily simple to create. But will this technology create a reality of “alternative facts” where “truth goes to die”? No. Deepfakes are a technology, and more widespread abuse is expected with more widespread availability. Over time, we will adopt better transparency, better detection, and, most importantly, each of us users will become more aware and thus better equipped to fight the abuse of Deepfakes.

What are deepfakes?

Deepfakes are a way to manipulate images. Image manipulation is not new. Stalin removed Nikolai Yezhov from still images. Today, the underlying technology that creates deepfakes is Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Scared that deepfake technology will kill the ‘truth’ and undermine democracy as we know it? Don’t! The same tools we use for fake emails, fake Amazon reviews, and fake bot conversations will help with deepfakes: Transparency, regulation, education and artificial intelligence (AI).
