Large language models can’t understand language the way humans do because they can’t perceive and make sense of the world.
A recent open letter calling for a temporary artificial intelligence development hiatus is more concerned with hypothetical risks about the future than the issues that are right in front of us.
In a world of increasingly convincing AI-generated text, photos and videos, it’s more important than ever to be able to distinguish authentic media from fakes and imitations. The challenge is how.
