A fake video purported to show Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida making sexual remarks during an apparent live news program has been widely circulated on social media.

Chuckle.

Not interested in searching for the video but what would be more useful would be a real video compilation megamix of all the LDP pols' ignorant, misogynistic, bone-headed, out-of-touch, racist comments.

Featuring Aso Taro, Nikaido, various ministers and bureaucrats.

Make that go mega-viral, maybe would be a wake up call and really embarrass the LDP.

Just going to be more and more of this garbage. Fortunately social media will have no choice but to start flagging this stuff I imagine.

I think we all know of several tinfoil hat wearers who would have fallen for this hook, line, and sinker - and reposted it as fact.

I saw a short clip on the news last night, and other than the mouth moving, the rest of the face never moved making it mostly unbelievable. So it was probably made by an amateur. But in the hands of a pro, I think they could make something much more believable, and many people would fall for it.

AI is not being described as harmless, and it can improve our lives, as any tool it can be beneficial or have a negative effect depending on how it is used and controlled.

Welcome to the future. Where we will be second guessing everything that we see on any screen.

That is a very healthy thing to do already, and it has been for a long time. For good or for bad things need to be measured according to the source and how reliable it has been shown to be.

Welcome to the world of FAKES and it is getting much worse.

With AI it will become even easier for scammers to make money and fool their victims, many are choosing to go backward and to ANALOG to avoid being scammed.

Mr. Kishida is just one of the hundreds of thousands, many are loosing their life savings for these fake and Pro. scammers mainly out of India, Nigeria, North Korea and Russia with the help of their local authorities.

Just watched the Vid, anyone with the right set of brains will notice it is fake immediately, very poor work and will probably be caught by the authorities very soon.

Nippon TV was possibly targeted because it was created by a Japanese national who worked as a double agent for the US... look it up.

Difamación should be punishable, particularly, of the country’s elected officials.

AI is just getting started - just wait till governments figure out how to misuse AI to fool people.

You know your own link disproves your claim that "people say AI is harmless", right? if there is anything that people are saying is that AI brings new risks and problems, what is still discussed is how these can be avoided to make the tool something positive at the end.

AI gets more attention recently for fears of what it could do or be used to do negatively to humanity

That is the point of the comment, to refute that people supposedly are only saying AI would be something harmless and only positive, when in fact the opposite is what can be commonly found everywhere.

AI is really amazing technology, but it is extremely powerful and extreme care should be used when dealing with neural network or other advanced types of AI.

I feel like we've unleashed a technology that maybe we ought to look at regulating like the medical or engineering industries.. a binding, universal code of ethics is needed for this technology or it really has the potential to cause us all, the world, a lot of grief if misused by bad actors.

I saw the video.

Is was pretty fake looking.

If anyone is taking it seriously, they need to get out more.

And If anyone is taking the real Kishida seriously, they need to be sent away.

The problem is nefarious people who will always, without fail, exploit anything for nefarious purposes.

People learning lags behind machine learning.

Intelligence is different than wisdom.

As far as I know I have not seen any fake AI things like this, but then, I never watch political interviews because they are all just BS. But I suppose AI, fake or not, is some thing we have to get used to, it is our future.
