Sharing is Caring!

You haven’t even seen disinformation yet.

This has not even begun.

Wait until the AI can make 30-second video clips indistinguishable from real life in 90 seconds with normal Nvidia cards based on nothing more than a text prompt.

That’s when the disinformation age truly begins. You will have no ability to confirm what is or isn’t real without seeing it yourself.

The Guardian:

More than 85% of people are worried about the impact of online disinformation and 87% believe it has already harmed their country’s politics, according to a global survey, as the United Nations announced a plan to tackle the phenomenon.

Audrey Azoulay, director general of the UN’s culture body, Unesco, told reporters on Monday that false information and hate speech online – accelerated and amplified by social media platforms – posed “major risks to social cohesion, peace and stability”.

Regulation was urgently needed “to protect access to information … while at the same time protecting freedom of expression and human rights”, Azoulay said as she presented a “governance blueprint” for governments, regulators and platforms.
