Instagram will not remove AI-faked video of Zuckerberg from the website
Jun 12, 2019
Earlier this week, a deepfake video of Mark Zuckerberg saying that privacy scandals let him control millions of people appeared on Instagram. The video was made with AI technology in which Zuckerberg appears with robotic voice and mannerisms; this method is called deepfaking and can make it seem like someone is talking about a specific topic when it is not true. Mark Zuckerberg is the CEO of Facebook, the parent company of Instagram; many were wondering if the site was going to take down the video until a spokesperson stated that the video would follow the same regulations as for other videos. On Instagram, misinformation has to be debunked with proven research.
