Fooling all the people all the time: the rise of artificial intelligence and fake news


Modern artificial intelligence is way beyond playing chess; it has mastered Go and kicks butt in Dota 2, among other games.

Artificial intelligence, or AI, may still have to be fed information, but once it has gathered enough, it can come up with results that mimic the original data. First came the static images -- AI managed to create perfectly convincing images of people who have never existed. Then it showed it was perfectly capable of mimicking different seasons.
