A year ago we published a magazine called “The Artificial Intelligence Invasion.” The invasion of the time that was really only invading our homework is now invading our livelihoods. As AI continues to become more prevalent, the essence of truth continues to blur into the digital world.

Determining the credibility of news is becoming impossible as the journalists and photographers of the world are being replaced by AI generated words and images that aren’t necessarily based on fact. People are becoming increasingly tricked because of the way AI trumps critical thinking skills. Public figures, celebrities, and even your own friends and family can be generated, altered, or added to by the power of AI image generators.

It’s bots before besties as human relationships are being replaced by thumb tapping and yapping to AI chatbots that have been implemented into social media platforms including Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and more. There is no need for human interaction when there’s “someone” to talk to at your fingertips at all times who will tell you exactly what you want to hear.

The power of knowledge no longer has any place in schools where knowledge now comes from some key words typed into a search bar. As long as AI continues to involve itself, the learning environments of students all over the world are fading away out of the convenience that AI is as a “tool”.

There are a wide range of societal aspects that are being swept away into the world of artificial intelligence. Here we are a year later ready to take on was artificial intelligence has in store for us, and it’s safe to say that we were most definitely not disappointed. As AI seeps deeper into our daily lives, the very essence of truth itself becomes blurred in the digital landscape.

With AI-generated content proliferating across online platforms, discerning what is real and what is fake becomes an impossible task. The once trusted pillars of journalism and photography are now under siege, replaced by algorithms churning out content without regard for accuracy or integrity. This erosion of trust in traditional sources of information leaves society vulnerable to manipulation and fake news.
