AI and the Threat to Photojournalism No One Is Talking About

From a story on by Amanda Darrach headlined “Fred Ritchie on AI and the threat to photojournalism no one is talking about”:

In recent years, artificial intelligence engineers have used millions of real photographs—taken by journalists all over the world, and without those journalists’ permission—to train new imaging software to create synthetic photojournalism. Now anyone can prompt AI software like OpenAI’s DALL-E to generate convincing images of people or places that never existed, and of events that never occurred. In turn, those synthetic images continue to update AI software training.
