Europe wants a label for AI as it fights disinformation

Mon, Jun 5, 2023 at 1:45 pm

The European Union is pushing online platforms like Google and Meta to step up efforts to fight false information by adding labels to text, photos and other content generated by artificial intelligence. A top EU Commission official says the ability of a new generation of AI chatbots to create complex content and visuals in seconds raises “fresh challenges for the fight against disinformation.” The 27-nation bloc has asked Google, Meta, Microsoft, TikTok and other tech companies that have signed up to the voluntary EU agreement on combating disinformation to dedicate efforts to tackling the AI problem. The official says companies should roll out technology to recognize AI-generated content and “clearly label this to users.”

In recent weeks, China sailed a warship across the path of an American destroyer in the Taiwan Strait, and one of its fighter jets intercepted a U-S Air Force aircraft over the South China Sea. Defense Secretary Austin has said the U-S would not “flinch in the face of bullying or coercion” from China.

Former President Trump Kicks Off Campaign Events

Sat, Jan 28, 2023 at 10:16 pm

The former President is kicking off his 2024 campaign with two stops along the East Coast. More from Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with a stop Saturday in New Hampshire before heading to South Carolina, appearances in early-voting states marking the first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago.

Those states hold two of the party’s first three nominating contests, giving them enormous power in selecting the nominee.

Mr. Trump and his allies hope the events will offer a show of force behind the former president after a sluggish start to his campaign. In recent weeks, his backers have reached out to political operatives and elected officials to secure support for Mr. Trump at a critical point when other Republicans are preparing their own expected challenges.

Another religious freedom battle — this one in Minnesota

VERBATIM: Despite several recent Supreme Court rulings that found government cannot treat religious institutions WORSE than everybody else, Minnesota lawmakers has passed a bill that bars Christian schools from a program that helps high school students earn college credit at no cost. The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty is taking the state to court, stating that the new restriction is “not only patently anti-religious; it is also against the law.” Michael Harrington, SRN News.
