“AI-generated image of Pentagon explosion causes stock market stutter”

I encourage parents and professionals to help youth develop media literacy, which entails their ability to critically evaluate the information they encounter. After analyzing the information, they should discern the authentic (real) from the deceptive (fake) content. It is becoming increasingly challenging for young people to distinguish between reality and falsehood. Furthermore, with the advent of AI, discerning the difference is also becoming difficult for adults. This article highlights how a fabricated image shared on Twitter caused a disruption in the stock market until its AI-generated origin was confirmed.

We are currently in the early stages of AI generation available to consumers like you and me. Unfortunately, malicious individuals will exploit these technologies. Therefore, we must proactively prepare ourselves to equip our children with the necessary skills. ~ Ryan
