Alice Marwick on ChatGPT and disinformation

Matteo Wong writes for The Atlantic about how generative AI tools like DALL-E and ChatGPT can be used to create disinformation and propaganda. He talks to Alice Marwick about the implications of these tools:

Framing technology as the driving force behind disinformation and conspiracy implies that technology is a sufficient, or at least necessary, solution. But emphasizing AI could be a mistake. If we’re primarily worried “that someone is going to deep-fake Joe Biden, saying that he is a pedophile, then we’re ignoring the reason why a piece of information like that would be resonant.”
