Artificial Intelligence: yes or no?
Some believe that artificial intelligence (AI) will solve all our problems while it inspires apocalyptic talk in others.
AI can help journalists gather information, but “deep fakes” and voice simulators capable of generating believable audio segments, can sow doubt about the authenticity of content and put democracy at risk.
On the other hand, some politicians brandish the term “fake news” to denounce opposing opinions or deny reality.
Finally, using AI to generate illustrations on demand robs artists of their work and infringes on their copyright.
Fortunately, AI hasn’t yet figured the number of fingers on one hand.
