Meta's Plans to Label AI-Generated Content Are a Sad Fart

Meta Morphosis Meta is promising to roll out auto-labeling for AI-generated images — as soon as it figures out how, that is.

But it’s not yet possible to identify all AI-generated content, and there are ways that people can strip out invisible markers,” Clegg wrote. “So we’re pursuing a range of options. We’re working hard to develop classifiers that can help us to automatically detect AI-generated content, even if the content lacks invisible markers.” Confused? Us too.

At the time the report was issued, the video didn’t violate Meta’s manipulated media policy, which only bars “video created through artificial intelligence… and only to content showing people saying things they did not say.”…Meta's Plans to Label AI-Generated Content Are a Sad Fart
