You’re not going to be able to tell what is real and what is not real, and fake faces being more real than real faces is a big part of that.
Eventually – that is to say, rather quickly – no one will have any idea what is real.
The government will claim that they are the only ones who can tell you what is real, and these “fact checker” sites will decide, by decree, which events actually happened.
It sounds like a scenario straight out of a Ridley Scott film: technology that not only sounds more “real” than actual humans, but looks more convincing, too. Yet it seems that moment has already arrived.
A new study has found people are more likely to think pictures of white faces generated by AI are human than photographs of real individuals.
“Remarkably, white AI faces can convincingly pass as more real than human faces – and people do not realise they are being fooled,” the researchers report.
