Sometimes it takes awhile for new facts to sink in. We all know about deepfakes, but for a lot of us we think that we’re aware enough that we’ll know if what we’re watching is an AI or a human, a deepfake or something that actually happened. But most of the time we can’t. And the quality of AI-created art, music, and deepfakes is only getting better. Here’s more from MOTHERBOARD:
“I’m crazy about chatbots, deepfakes, and AI-created art and music,” Rajnerowicz told Motherboard in an email. He created the survey as part of a project for Tidio Blog, a company that makes customer service chatbots. “This project has gone a little off the rails.”
“Can’t people really tell the difference between AI-created images and real photos and images?” Rajnerowicz said on Reddit. “I already got more than 400 responses…but I am surprised that the results are so poor. Do people really have trouble distinguishing between a DeepDreamGenerator photo and a painting? When I prepared the examples they seemed obvious to me. There is a clear hint in almost every one of them, but so far the best score is 13/21.”

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
