Meta to Stop Removing Some AI-Generated Posts

Meta Platforms, the parent company of such popular social networks as Instagram and Facebook, is making changes to the concept of its corporate policy so that there are more publications generated by artificial intelligence on the websites of this technology giant, even if such content contains information that can mislead users.

Meta to Stop Removing Some AI-Generated Posts

The mentioned company will begin labeling materials authored by AI. The tech giant has decided to abandon the practice of removing content generated by artificial intelligence. The previous version of the corporate policy regarding the issue, formulated as manipulated media, provided that videos edited or synthesized in ways that are not apparent to an average person and are highly likely to mislead the user cannot be posted on virtual platforms that are part of the Meta ownership structure. The company has used practices to remove such content.

On Friday, April 5, a message was posted on the tech giant’s blog, according to which the new version of the corporate policy applies to digitally created or altered images, videos, or audio. At the same time, users can still label misleading posts.

During the period of active scaling of the process of using artificial intelligence, cybersecurity is of particular importance. Scammers and manipulators have access to AI tools. Against the background of this fact, the importance of user awareness is actualized. For example, a query in an Internet search system, such as how to know if my camera is hacked, will allow anyone to get information about signs of unauthorized access to a personal device. It is also already obvious that in the emerging era of AI, the problem of the reliability of materials hosted on virtual platforms will be of particular importance.

Artificial intelligence can be the author and spreader of certain information. But this does not mean that humanity does not have a chance to take control of the relevant process.
