AI-Powered Media Manipulation and Its Consequences

Recording: AI-Powered Media Manipulation and Its Consequences, Mar 11, 2019

Pics… and it didn’t happen. Artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies are vastly increasing the scope of media manipulation. Technology now enables fabricated or altered media (manipulation by editing) and distorts what media people can access (manipulation by curation). This panel will cover two case studies: an AI that does rapid, automated “doctoring” of images and media recommendation algorithms that amplify or suppress content. Panelists will debate the society-wide dangers of fake and misleading media to democracy, privacy, cultural production, and more. They’ll discuss current efforts to raise awareness as well as possible legal remedies for the development and use of AIs that generate fraudulent, defamatory, or otherwise unlawful content.
