ChatGPT will digitally tag images generated by DALL-E 3 to help battle misinformation

In an age where fraudsters are using generative AI to scam money or tarnish one's reputation, tech firms are coming up with methods to help users verify content — at least still images, to begin with. As teased in its 2024 misinformation strategy, OpenAI is now including provenance metadata in images generated with ChatGPT on the web and DALL-E 3 API, with their mobile counterparts receiving the same upgrade by February 12.The metadata follows the C2PA (Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity) open standard, and…

Hulu Shows Jarring Anti-Hamas Ad Likely Generated With AI

Hulu ran an anti-Hamas ad that appears to be made using artificial intelligence to show an idealized version of Gaza—claiming this paradise destination could exist if not for Hamas.The 30-second spot, opening like a tourism ad, shows palm trees and coastlines. There are five-star hotels and children playing. People dance, eat, and laugh, while a voiceover encourages visitors to “experience a culture rich in tradition.” But it suddenly shifts, turning the face of a smiling man into a grimacing one. “This is what Gaza could…

Michael Cohen gave lawyer fraudulent case citations generated by AI

Michael Cohen, former President Trump’s ex-fixer and personal lawyer, said in newly unsealed court filings that he accidentally gave his lawyer fake legal citations concocted by the artificial intelligence program Google Bard. U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman called three case citations into question earlier this month after they were used in a motion to end Cohen’s supervised release early. Cohen pleaded guilty to charges including tax evasion and campaign finance violations in 2018 and served some time in…

How big tech generated billions in fines… then didn’t pay them

Rarely a month goes by without big tech companies getting fined for price fixing, squashing competitors or misusing data, but it can take years before they pay a penny. Ireland's data regulator confirmed to AFP that Meta has not paid any of the two billion euros ($2.2 billion) in fines issued since last September. TikTok also owes hundreds of millions. Amazon is still appealing against a 746 million euro fine from 2021, Luxembourg's data regulator told AFP. Google is still disputing EU fines worth more than eight…

YouTube on Tuesday said it will soon allow users to request that artificial intelligence-created imposters be removed from the platform, and will require labels on videos featuring realistic-looking "synthetic" content.New rules aimed at AI-generated video material will go into force in the coming months as fears mount over the technology being abused to promote scams and misinformation, or even to falsely depict people appearing in pornography. "We'll make it possible to request the removal of AI-generated or other…

Photonic Time Crystals Generated From Rapid Shifts in Laser Light : ScienceAlert

Scientists experimenting with some of the most fundamental laws of physics have found more evidence of what they're calling photonic time crystals (PTCs): materials in which the speed at which light moves (the refractive index) oscillates very quickly.We already know much more about photonic crystals, where a repeating pattern in a material creates a shifting in the refractive index over an area of space; you can see this in the shimmering of insect wings or precious minerals. With PTCs, the element of changing over time…

Humans may be more likely to believe disinformation generated by AI

That credibility gap, while small, is concerning given that the problem of AI-generated disinformation seems poised to grow significantly, says Giovanni Spitale, the researcher at the University of Zurich who led the study, which appeared in Science Advances today.  “The fact that AI-generated disinformation is not only cheaper and faster, but also more effective, gives me nightmares,” he says. He believes that if the team repeated the study with the latest large language model from OpenAI, GPT-4, the difference would…

US lawyers fined $5,000 after including fake case citations generated by ChatGPT

It's something that's drilled into you from the first essay you write in school: Always check your sources. Yet, New York attorney Steven Schwartz relied on ChatGPT to find and review them for him — a decision that's led a judge to issue a $5,000 fine to him, his associate Peter LoDuca and their law firm Levidow, Levidow and Oberman, The Guardian reports. Schwartz used it for a case in which a man was suing Colombian airline Avianca alleging he was injured on a flight to New York City. In this case, ChatGPT produced six…
