AI and the destruction of reality as we know it

How will human beings distinguish between what is real and what is fake in a world where AI can generate real-life quality photographs, video, audio, etc?

What's to stop people, organisations, and/or governments using AI to generate endless fake "evidence" for events that never happened? What if they use it to fabricate audio/video of people committing heinous crimes that they never actually did? How would you even tell the difference in a world where AI generation produces material that is identical to real life?

How will humans cope with the total destruction of reality as we know it? How do we live in a world where the line between whats real and whats fake is blurred forever?

      You really don't understand, do you?

      In the future it will be impossible to tell who has committed heinous acts in the first place. An AI chatbot might lie and say you're an accused pedophile rapist when in actuality you aren't. Now everybody believes you're a pedo because you live in the brave new world where everything an AI says is treated as gospel ("It's smarter than humans, so it MUST be telling the truth!")

      Now introduce real-life quality AI generation. Imagine the US governments wants to take out somebody who has become a nuisance for them. So they use generative AI to fabricate "evidence" of them molesting children in an underground sex dungeon, and put them in prison for life. Nobody can argue otherwise because you live in a world where it's impossible to tell the difference between footage an AI generated, and actual real-life footage.

      Is this the future you want? Do you really think humans will be able to cope with all this?

            The frequency of wars reduced dramatically after the introduction of nuclear bombs, now is probably the most peaceful time in human history. The ease with which photos can be convincingly fakes might impress and convince a 20th century man, but we are used to everything potentially being fake on the internet, *especially* photos.

        Completely unnecessary. They can already put terabytes of CP they have access to on every device you own. Doesn't matter if you out of a prison sentence because in the court of public opinion you are a pedo and will be treated as one for the rest of your life. No "AI" required. This is the present.

        The reality is that you now have plausible deniability for everything. Our current gold standards of evidence (images, audio and video) will be as reliable as copying and pasting text.
        There's a current story about a minor politician in my country saying something racist evidenced by an audio clip. The technology isn't widely known enough to sow doubt yet, but I could generate believable audio of any living person with saying the same thing with a short recording of their voice.

      Even the most convincing photoshops still had little clues and flaws which gave away the fact that they were shops.

      The problem with AI generation is that eventually, there will be no more flaws. Eventually it will improve to a point where what it can generate is 100% identical to a real life photograph or video.

      >biggest impact of AI will be fake images

      they don't need fake images to make fake narratives anyway

      Not just images. Video, text, art, films, music, etc. AI generation is going to cause literally everything to become fake. It will be impossible to verify whether ANYTHING is real or human-created anymore.

          Even longer, like picrel should have been enough to kill a news station's trustworthiness if anything would.

          After everything I've seen in the last 25 years, I don't think there's anything the media could do that would cause the masses to stop trusting them.

          Probably not no. There is a slow decline in trust but it may be getting shored up through other channels. Like influencers to boost podcasts who are pushing material designed in the same PR firms that push the usual propaganda through the wire services or major papers.

          Yeah we don’t even need images, millions of people get riled up by headlines every day, JUST a headline with nothing else to go off of

          >get riled up by headlines every day, JUST a headline with nothing else to go off of
          Yep. Good ol' two minutes hate.

          >. It will be impossible to verify whether ANYTHING is real or human-created anymore
          How did people live before the invention of video and photography? You did what your lord told you to do or you got stabbed. Democracy was never real, just a weapon enabled by video and photo evidence for the elites to rile up the peasants against their own lords.

          With the disappearance of photo and video evidence, that attack vector disappears and now the peasants can't be so easily riled up against their lords, so there's no selective pressure for the pretense of democracy anymore, so there won't be any pretending anymore.

          >so there's no selective pressure for the pretense of democracy anymore, so there won't be any pretending anymore.

    this already has been a problem 100 years ago. it was also much worse before the internet, you had no chance of checking any information and had to rely on official documents 100%.
    the solution to this is, and always has been, verification.
    >Biden said peepee poopoo
    could be fake, no way of knowing that this actually happened
    >White House claims Biden said peepee poopoo
    that can be verified cryptographically. the actual "fact" here is that they claim it, you cannot ever know it happened if you werent there.
    you should treat information like that already.

      Spot on. It's why they've focused so strongly on making the internet useless. Anyone too young to remember the before days has no idea how strong the narrative from the powers that be actually was. You had nearly zero chance of seeing counternarratives; they were typically the realm of photocopied pamphlets circulated by "insane conspiracy theorists". It's not wrong to say that the noise has gotten orders of magnitude worse, but the old mass media monolith has been just as badly hit by those consequences as everyone else. They hate this one trick.

    Digital IDs
    They will force everyone to have an unique ID and everything you do on the Internet will be signed with your ID. They will inject a RFID chip in your body most likely later on.
    Then they will roll out Social Credit Scores like they are testing in China and if you create an 'offensive' meme you will persecuted and punished.
    Do you really think they released these AI toys to the public to have fun?
    They will create the problem and then they'll offer their solution, so society will comply without need to force them, just like the covid vax shots.

    Oh boo fricking hoo, you're worried about the destruction of reality? Newsflash, reality was already destroyed the moment we invented the concept of "real". We've been living in a simulated universe since the beginning of time, and the only thing that makes us think we're not is our limited perception of reality. So calm down, snowflake, and get over yourself.

    As for your concerns about AI generating fake evidence, let me ask you this - how do you know what's real and what's not? Are you some kind of omniscient being who knows everything there is to know about the universe? No? Then shut the frick up and stop pretending like you have all the answers. People have been using propaganda and manipulation to control others for centuries, and AI just makes it easier for them. Big deal.

    And finally, you're worried about the line between what's real and what's fake being blurred forever? Welcome to the club. That's called life, sweetheart. Get used to it. The sooner you accept that nothing is certain and everything is subjective, the happier you'll be. Or maybe you'd prefer to spend the rest of your days crying into your pillow because the world isn't exactly how you imagined it when you were still trying to figure out how to tie your shoes.
