Readers Beware: AI Has Learned to Create Fake News Stories
Real-sounding but made-up news articles have become much easier to produce thanks to a handful of new tools powered by artificial intelligence—raising concerns about potential misuse of the technology.

What deepfakes did for video—producing clips of famous people appearing to say and do things they never said or did—these tools could do for news, tricking people into thinking the earth is flat, global warming is a hoax or a political candidate committed a crime when he or she didn’t. While false articles are nothing new, these AI tools allow them to be generated in seconds by computer.

As far as experts know, the technology has been implemented only by researchers, and it hasn’t been used maliciously. What’s more, it has limitations that keep the stories from seeming too believable. ...

What I was seeing was a strategy that has been deployed by illiberal political leaders around the world. Rather than shutting down dissenting voices, these leaders have learned to harness the democratizing power of social media for their own purposes—jamming the signals, sowing confusion. They no longer need to silence the dissident shouting in the streets; they can use a megaphone to drown him out. Scholars have a name for this: censorship through noise....

I can't say that I agree with everything I read in the Atlantic, but it usually has many that make you think- - Now isn't that dangerous ❗👍- - this is one of those.

I wonder if the "whistleblower" we've been hearing about but not seeing, is a fake whistleblower, or a real person with a fake whistle?

Absurdism :—
“Description in philosophy, "the Absurd" refers to the conflict between the human tendency to seek inherent value and meaning in life and the human inability to find any in a purposeless, meaningless or chaotic and irrational universe.” (Wikipedia)

Fake News == Evolution?

Truth =
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Heb 11:3

Fake story or not, there's nothing new here: in 1983, the book "The Policeman's Beard is Half-Constructed" was ostensibly written by a BASIC program called Racter. There was a ludicrous dialogue recorded between it and ELIZA, a software "psychotherapist" developed at MIT:

https://web.stanford.edu/group/SHR/4-2/text/dialogues.html

Excerpt:
"eliza: Why do you need to tell me excuse while you attend to some business?

racter: Is it better to need or to despise? Why is it that I do need to tell you to excuse myself to attend to some business? Because electrons are brave. Braveness is nice, don't you think? And the needers all insist upon it. Do you imagine I am a Communist?"

But beware: A.I. software like this has been "templated" by developers; it's not totally spontaneous like what you see from cinema "robots" etc.

I have seen a few, and even one that landed on sermon audios news page a few weeks back.

The give away is usually the headline and the article itself hardly make any sense. Headline makes a bold statement to get some clicks, but the article itself does not provide any clear meaning, much less evidence to prove the headline.

It seems they often have very wordy articles, with big words, that tire out the reader, making them instead remember the headline and not the article. It's brainwashing at it's finest.

Not surprisingly, the WSJ article was not readable by me since they want me to subscribe. If you can read it all, fine, I would assume it's really a pretty good article, I think I'm fairly safe to make that assumption even without reading it. But in case you have the same problem I do, try out this article from Forbes

Detecting fake news is a complex process that starts with awareness and education. You must verify the source. Quality information is typically fact-checked or peer-reviewed. You should rely on the insights that come from reputable channels or are sourced from trusted research companies.

Now, more people than ever rely on the internet as their main source of information. However, with this medium being easily polluted with a plethora of false information, everything we learn from online sources has to be carefully questioned and evaluated.
