New York – Sapa

Microsoft President Brad Smith said his biggest concern about artificial intelligence is the emergence of deep fakes that present realistic but false content, according to a Reuters report.

Smith – in a speech in Washington aimed at finding the best ways to address the issue of regulating artificial intelligence – called for steps to be taken to ensure people know when photos or videos are real and when they are fake.

“We’re going to have to address the issues around deep counterfeiting, and we’re going to have to address our concerns in that area especially when it comes to foreign attempts to use these technologies in cyberspace to influence our nations, especially the activities that are already being run by the Russian, Chinese and Iranian governments,” Smith added.

“We need to take steps to protect the public from counterfeiting content in cyberspace with the intent to deceive or defraud people through the use of artificial intelligence,” Smith continues.

Smith also advocated licensing critical AI software with the limitation that such licenses must be protected by all forms of security.

“We will need a new generation of controls on the sharing of these technologies, or at least an improvement in our controls on the export of our technologies, to ensure that these technologies are not stolen or used in ways that violate American standards,” he said.

Lawmakers in Washington have wrestled for weeks over what laws to pass to govern artificial intelligence, as companies large and small compete to bring versatile AI to market.

Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, the startup behind the ChatGPT artificial intelligence software, told the Senate committee that he had “grave concerns” that the use of artificial intelligence would affect the integrity of elections, adding that it should be regulated.

Altman – whose company is backed by Microsoft, “Open AI” – also called for global cooperation in the field of artificial intelligence and incentives for companies that meet safety standards.
