Higgins says he used Midjourney, an artificial intelligence program, to make the images. Midjourney is a tool that generates and builds images based on text commands.

– Midjourney is one of many systems with artificial intelligence, and here it relies on machine learning, which analyzes a lot of existing text, images, video and audio, and uses these existing materials to produce and build something completely new, says partner in the consulting firm from UT, Torger Waterhouse, to netavizn.

The system is based on learning through analysis. In the language engine, the AI ​​can, for example, analyze lots of text and predict appropriate next words, he says.

Trump has three legs

Higgins speaks News agency That one of Trump’s photos is based on the following text command: “Donald Trump falls while under arrest. Fibonacci spiral. News photo.”

– Photos of Trump’s arrest show just how good and bad Medjourney is at reproducing real scenes. In the first photo, Higgins wrote, “Trump has three legs and a police harness.” News agency.

Waterhouse says the images of Trump are a good example of how artificial intelligence can be misused to construct or create a reality or reality that does not exist.

There are negative consequences to this technology, says Waterhouse.

— that could challenge the way we’re used to documenting things, whether when it comes to news, court cases or investigations. At the same time, this is something people have been doing for a long time. People have always built realities in both the visual arts and literature, he says.

– The more we succeed in producing with simple means that seem real to people, the more important it is to build them through transparency, openness and honesty, says Waterhouse.

– Can anyone make such fake photos of Trump?

– Yes, anyone can theoretically do it now. But it’s like all the tools, skills and experience required to use these tools. And over time, these tools become more accessible, as with all technology, Waterhouse says.
