AI Telling the Truth /2020

This synthetic video is playing with our notion of truth. We consider truth the solid foundation of our knowledge and beliefs. When you don’t tell the truth, you can lose friends and even your life. Nevertheless, there are reasons to doubt that truth really exists in the way we imagine it. The German Wikipedia entry for truth starts with the warning “the title of this article is ambiguous” and goes on “the notion of truth is used in different contexts and is framed differently”. The video AI telling the truth plays with this uncertainty about the meaning of truth by conveying contradicting messages through an AI generated deepfake host.
