Former President Donald Trump expressed concern about artificial intelligence in a recent interview, calling it “maybe the most dangerous thing out there” due to its potential for misuse. He highlighted the issue of deepfakes, AI-generated videos that can depict individuals doing things that never actually occurred. Trump also shared a personal experience of being misrepresented in a deepfake video. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has warned about the increasing threat of deepfake technology, particularly in relation to the harm it can cause to vulnerable individuals, such as women. On the other hand, AI has been recognized as a tool that can be used for positive purposes, such as drug development and mitigating climate change. However, the technology’s potential to spread misinformation and destabilize societal processes is also a concern. The incorporation of AI into society has raised questions about copyright laws, and a recent lawsuit filed by The New York Times against OpenAI and Microsoft for copyright infringement may provide some clarity on this matter. Overall, there is a need to address the potential risks of AI while also leveraging its benefits.
