As powerful artificial intelligence systems improve their ability to create images, videos and text, researchers are increasingly concerned about the seemingly inevitable role of this technology in disinformation and propaganda campaigns.
Advances in generative AI have the potential to radically alter our information environment to the point where humans – and even machines – may lack the ability to distinguish between AI-generated and created content. by the man.
The proliferation of generative AI-powered tools makes it easier to produce misinformation, opening up a host of new problems with no clear solutions for online content moderators. AI ethicists and others within the industry are call for more regulatory measures.
And while many have hailed generative AI for its ability to deliver highly personalized recommendations, the same online personal data that drives AI programs could potentially be used to manipulate people en masse via chatbots to share conspiracy theories or foreign propaganda. How much will AI be able to manipulate us and what can be done to make the technology safer?
