OpenAI and Meta to fight deepfakes by putting a label on AI-generated images

Seeing is no longer believing thanks to the sea of AI-generated images that have flooded the internet this past year. From playful images of the Pope wearing a Balenciaga jacket to downright nasty deepfakes of Taylor Swift, AI-generated images are creating headaches all around.

But the damage from AI-generated images goes far beyond personal attacks on public figures. Bad actors are leveraging the technology to create deepfakes that manipulate political discourse and voter opinion. We’ll leave it up to you to imagine other bad uses of this technology.

In an effort to fight these bad actors, Meta announced yesterday that it’s working with industry partners to create common technical standards for identifying AI content. The company behind the world’s biggest social media products said that it will also label images that users post to Facebook, Instagram and Threads when it detects industry standard indicators that the content is AI-generated.

OpenAI, the company behind image generation app Dall E, also echoed similar sentiments to Meta and announced yesterday that images generated in ChatGPT and its APIs will now include metadata that allows social platforms and content distributors to see when an image was generated by AI.


Billionaires wanted it, but 62,630 everyday investors got it first… and profited

When incredibly valuable assets come up for sale, it's typically the wealthiest people that end up taking home an amazing investment. But not always…

One platform is taking on the billionaires at their own game, buying up some of history’s most prized blue-chip artworks. Its investors have already realized annualized net returns of 17.8%, 21.5%, 35% and more.

It's called Masterworks. Their nearly $1 billion collection includes artists like Banksy, Picasso, and Basquiat. So far, every one of Masterworks’ 20 exits has returned a profit to investors, totaling more than $50 million in payouts.

Offerings can sell out in minutes, but Superhuman AI readers can skip the waitlist to join with this exclusive link.

According to strategy consulting firm PwC’s Annual Global CEO Survey, a strong majority of CEOs say that AI will increase work efficiencies for employees and themselves, but weren’t so sure when asked about AI’s impact on profitability.

The biggest developments in AI governance and policy this week

The EU’s landmark AI Act passed its last big hurdle on the way to adoption, as member states approved the final text. The legislation covers banning high-risk uses cases, regulating AI models, creating transparency, and more.

US regulators are opening an inquiry into the relationships between leading AI startups like OpenAI and the tech giants that have invested billions of dollars in them. The inquiry will evaluate whether these investments undermine fair competition.

AI-related lobbying rose 185% in 2023, with more than 450 organizations participating, according to disclosures analyzed by OpenSecrets on behalf of CNBC.

Police departments in the US are turning to AI to sift through millions of hours of unreviewed body-cam footage, according to ProPublica.
