AI will cause the end of information

What I mean by "the end of information" is that junk information will start to pile up. Misinformation, just plain wrong ideas, pseudoscience and so forth will start to creep in everywhere.

You ever made a xerox of a xerox? That's what will happen as AI starts to put information onto the internet, which will then feed back into other AIs who will put the altered info back out.

A decade from now you won't even know who the president is. Hell, you won't even know if 1 = 1 or if it equals 2. Bridges will collapse as they're designed by AI which was fed by another AI which was fed by another, etc. Each layer of AI will magnify small mistakes made by the previous one. The world will essentially become perpetually deadlocked as everybody tries to figure out what is real and what isn't.

Imagine this over generations, toddlers shown AI generated images of tree dwelling sharks, or public figures being arrested, etc. Information will no longer exist.

      There are a limited number of bad faith actors (people who make shit up online) right now, but if ai can create “content” and we don’t even know where this “content” comes from, the internet will be flooded with false information that will drown out real info.

        >There are a limited number of bad faith actors
        Consider the following statement:
        >I had a bad day.
        Now ponder all the possible meanings of each of those words and the sentence as a whole, the possible intentions of the author and how all of those interpretations relate to the countless frames of reference of the reader. Language is confusing because often even the sender of a message doesn't know exactly what their words are referring to. The clumsiness of language and language users is already a problem even before verifying / falsifying the truth value of the statements made.

        If you were not already overwhelmed by the confusing nature of language even before the internet became widespread then AI misinformation is the least of your problems.

    People were somehow convinced to worship a corpse for 2 thousand years. I remain sceptical if AI will have an impact.

    The statement that "AI will cause the end of information" seems to be quite extreme and likely needs clarification. Artificial intelligence (AI) itself is a tool, and its impact on information depends on how it is developed, deployed, and regulated. AI has the potential to transform various aspects of information processing, dissemination, and analysis, both positively and negatively. Here are different interpretations of the statement:

    AI and Information Overload: The rise of AI, particularly in information processing and analysis, could contribute to information overload. With AI systems capable of rapidly analyzing vast amounts of data, there might be concerns about individuals and societies being inundated with information, making it challenging to discern relevant, accurate, and valuable insights.

    AI and Misinformation: As discussed earlier, AI can be used to generate and spread misinformation. Deepfakes, automated disinformation campaigns, and biased algorithms can contribute to the dissemination of false or misleading information, which could erode trust in information sources.

    AI and Information Manipulation: AI technologies, if misused, could be employed to manipulate information for malicious purposes. This could include altering the context of information, creating fake content, or using AI algorithms to shape public opinion in a way that serves particular interests.

    AI in Content Creation: AI has the potential to automate content creation, such as news articles, art, and even music. While this can enhance productivity, there are concerns about the authenticity and trustworthiness of AI-generated content, especially if it is difficult to distinguish from human-created content.

      It's crucial to note that responsible development and deployment of AI, along with appropriate regulations and ethical considerations, can mitigate potential negative impacts. AI has the potential to enhance our ability to process and understand information, automate tedious tasks, and contribute to scientific and technological advancements.

      To avoid negative consequences, it's important for society to actively address ethical concerns, ensure transparency in AI systems, and foster a culture of responsible AI use. Education, regulation, and collaboration between various stakeholders are essential to harness the benefits of AI while minimizing potential risks to the integrity and reliability of information.

        >responsible development and deployment of AI
        There should 100% be a new form of digital identifier on an image indicating whether it was AI generated or not. It doesn't have to be on the image itself, just a tag of sorts. Basically, we'll need to create a new, legally enforceable standard, i.e. it would be illegal to remove the digital identifier.

      shut the frick up chatGPT

      hows that any different than now?

      The truth is that the world was already starting to become ruled by misinformation before AI, but we at least had an easy way to filter all of it. AI will make filtering out all the wrong information much more difficult if not impossible. Essentially think of encryption, it would take so long to break some encryption ciphers out there that it's impossible to break them for all intents and purposes. AI will exponentially increase the amount of fact checking which has to be done, to the point where when enough of it accumulates nobody will have the time to sort out what's true or not, and we can't just use algorithms for obvious reasons.
