Prime Time With Ravish Kumar, Feb 20, 2020 | Social Media Now A Medium Of Propagating Falsehood?
The BJP used artificial intelligence technology to create two deepfake videos of party leader Manoj Tiwari. In the video, he appears to be speaking in two languages to appeal to different voter groups ahead of the Delhi assembly election earlier this month. Ravish Kumar asks whether a national party should make use of such technology to deceive voters in spite of the threat of it being misused to tarnish the image of political candidates. The state of California in the US passed a law that makes it a crime to distribute images or videos that gives a false impression of a politicians words or actions, within 60 days of an election. Amid controversies of morphed images being used on social media to spread misinformation, will the use of deepfake be the new tool to influence elections? We ask on Prime Time.
