Deepfake AI now threatens to create a huge problem for people, celebrities. Aware of it, PM Narendra Modi has spoken about it.
Notably, deepfake is a type of artificial intelligence used to create convincing images, audio and video hoaxes. The term describes both the technology and the resulting bogus content. It is a portmanteau of deep learning and fake.
Deepfakes often transform existing source content where one person is swapped for another. Prime Minister Modi on Friday flagged the misuse of artificial intelligence for creating 'deepfakes', and said the media must educate people about this crisis in making.
Addressing journalists at BJP's Diwali Milan programme at the party's headquarters in New Delhi, Modi also referred to his resolve to make India 'Viksit Bharat' (developed India), saying these are not merely words but a ground reality.
PM Modi also said that 'vocal for local' has found people's support. Modi further said that India's achievements during the COVID-19 pandemic created confidence among the people that the country is not going to stop now.
He also said that Chhath Puja has become a 'rashtriya parva' (national festival) and it is a matter of great happiness.
