Last month, Facebook did not want to remove from its platform somee obviously false videos of the president of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, but said it would lower the rating to appear to fewer users. Pelosi, at the time, told a Californian radio station that “not eliminating something they know to be false shows that Facebook was willing to facilitate Russian interference” in the White House elections that Trump won in 2016.
A video manipulated with artificial intelligence presenting Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg appeared on Instagram, one of his platforms.
“Imagine this for a second: a man, with total control of data stolen from billions of people, all their secrets, their lives, their futures,” Zuckerberg says in a manipulated way, in an apparent description of his person.
The video was created by Israeli start-up Canny AI, and by artists Bill Posters and Daniel Howe allegedly for an art project called Spectrum that was shown at the British documentary film festival Sheffield Doc/Fest and now the platform says it has no intention of censoring it, U.S. media reported Tuesday.
