The fight against AI-generated disinformation is hindered by public distrust and a lack of literacy in identifying fake content. Efforts by lawmakers, fact-checking organizations, and tech companies are being undermined by the public’s refusal to accept facts that contradict their worldview. This distrust has been fueled by politicians, media outlets, and the internet itself. The introduction of powerful generative AI tools has further raised concerns about the potential impact of AI-generated disinformation, particularly in upcoming elections. The reach and influence of AI-generated disinformation are still unclear, but recent incidents of misleading deepfake voices and images being circulated online are cause for concern. While internet users have become adept at spotting fake text posts, the rise of AI-generated fake visuals, audio, and video requires a higher level of education for people to discern truth from fiction.
