Artificial Evidence and the Death of Public Truth

March 10, 2019

Truth in the public sphere is dying and there doesn’t seem to be much we can do to stop it from happening.  What’s needed is a movement towards critical thinking and interrogation of all narratives presented to the public, building a more nuanced picture of truth that does not merely rely on what were previously considered reliable sources – such as video, audio and quotes from ‘reliable sources’.

Rapid advancements in technology are allowing mediums such as video and audio to be artificially constructed. These advancements will allow anyone to show people saying or doing something they never did; committing an act they were never present for; and build up media reports of activities that never happened.

AI can now create people that never existed, with expressive faces presenting a convincing facade of lived experience behind the empty pixels.

It’s always been the case that written reports could be fabricated and propaganda presented easily as fact. The danger now is that we have come to believe that our new forms of evidence are more credible, often treating them as near irrefutable.  Perhaps we believe these sources because they come directly to our personal feeds and feel more intimately tailored to ourselves. Whatever the cause, it is clear that we are losing a kind of collective common sense to interrogate the agendas behind different reports.

Fuck it, i'm tired - take the source link  :P
