Tom Newton Dunn and Dr. Mansoor Ahmed-Rengers discuss the rise of AI-generated content, particularly deepfakes, and its impact on the confusion between fact and disinformation online.
The rapid growth of accessible and user-friendly AI platforms has deepened the problem of disinformation. OpenOrigins has developed a potential solution that aims to verify the authenticity of images and distinguish between deepfakes and real photos. Our co-founder, Dr. Mansoor Ahmed-Rengers, explains the development of the technology and its functionality. The discussion also briefly touches on the challenges of applying a similar verification process to text and suggests the need for regulation in that area.
