AI image generators are now so high quality they can easily generate "photographs" of "evidence" of historical events that never even happened.
This is going to have cataclysmic implications for our perception of reality. Suddenly, you cannot trust photographic evidence for anything anymore. You cannot know for sure if anything you're looking at is real or even actually happened.
Not to mention that this could have very sinister implications once the state starts getting involved. What if a tyrannical government decides to use AI generation to fabricate "evidence" for a terrorist attack, crime, or some other horrible event that never happened? And then they accuse anybody who refuses to believe the photographs as a "dangerous conspiracy theorist" and ruins their lives? It will start with authoritarian countries like China or North Korea, but who's to say that our governments even here in the west wouldn't do the same thing eventually?
We really need to talk about this, Bot.info. We can't keep burying our heads in the sand. We need to fucking do something and ban this technology before it destroys the world as we know it.
