🪞 Deep(er) Fakes

The Guarding reporting Magazine editor sacked over AI-generated Schumacher interview:

The latest edition of Die Aktuelle ran a front cover with a picture of a smiling Schumacher and the headline promising “Michael Schumacher, the first interview”. The strapline added: “it sounded deceptively real”. Inside, it emerged the quotes had been produced by AI.

A deeply disturbing use of generative AI – Michael Schumacher suffered a severe brain injury in a skiing accident in 2013 and has not been seen publicly since then.

Meanwhile, Canadian singer and producer Grimes announced that:

I’ll split 50% royalties on any successful AI generated song that uses my voice. Same deal as I would with any artist i collab with. Feel free to use my voice without penalty. I have no label and no legal bindings.

We will find ourselves in an exciting game of “what’s real and what isn’t” and “who owns what” real soon now…
