AI and Truth Evasion

A good insight from Eliot Higgins, the head of the intelligence service Bellingcat.

When a lot of people think about AI, they think, “Oh, it’s going to fool people into believing stuff that’s not true.” But what it’s really doing is giving people permission to not believe stuff that is true. Because they can say, “Oh, that’s an AI-generated image. AI can generate anything now: video, audio, the entire war zone re-created.” They will use it as an excuse.

From an extensive interview in Wired.

Addendum: A case in point.
