AI and politics – level 1

19-03-2024 07:00

Politicians like Joe Biden and Sadiq Khan have problems with deepfakes. Deepfakes are images or videos which are not real. AI makes them.

People have different opinions about deepfakes. Some politicians use them. New York’s Mayor Eric Adams uses this technology. He can speak many languages in calls. This worries some people. Many politicians around the world are using fake media these days. Some people do not trust them anymore. They do not know what is real and what is fake.

In the US, elections are coming. It is important to know what is true and what is fake.

Difficult words: opinion (what you think), fake (not real), trust (to believe).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

"What concerns do people have about politicians using deepfakes, particularly in regards to upcoming elections?"
