Ever since generative AI became a huge thing earlier this year, I have lost all ability to distinguish between reality and fiction. I feel unable to trust anything anymore because pretty much every piece of “evidence” I see for an event could easily be an AI generated fake.
I pretty much can’t consume any media anymore without worrying if it’s AI. I can’t read/watch news reports on anything without wondering “what if it’s just an illusion created by AI?” I can’t go on the internet without worrying that 99% of people I’m interacting with might be AI chatbots. I can’t even watch a movie or play a video game, even an old one from 20 years ago, without wondering “has this been modified with AI in some way?”
The other day I took a phone call from a relative and genuinely started thinking “how can I be sure that this is really her and not just an AI faked voice?” I don’t know what to fricking do anymore anons, I am totally losing my grip on reality, and shit is only going to get worse as this technology progresses.
