Artificial intelligence (AI) is generating white faces that appear more real than human faces, according to a study by experts at The Australian National University. The research found that people were more likely to think AI-generated white faces were human compared to real white faces, highlighting the racial bias in AI algorithms trained disproportionately on white faces.
The study raises concerns about the potential reinforcement of racial biases online and the impact on people of color. The researchers also discovered that people often do not realize they are being fooled by AI-generated faces, which could have implications for the spread of misinformation and identity theft. The study emphasizes the need for greater transparency in AI development and public awareness about the realism of AI faces.
