    Video: Are all fake news videos AI-generated? Here’s what you must know about edited content and deepfakes

    The BJP has filed a complaint with the Election Commission of India (ECI) about deepfake videos circulating on social media. Led by IT minister Ashwini Vaishnaw, the complaint comes days after an edited video of Minister of Home Affairs, Amit Shah was circulated on social media. The BJP called to mandate social media platforms to enhance detection and removal of deepfakes related to elections, block repeat offenders, and run prominent newspaper ads about their prevalence.

    The edited video of Amit Shah, brought to the attention of the ECI, does not appear to be manipulated using AI, but simply edited. In a politically charged atmosphere in view of elections, AI-generated misinformation is gaining momentum on the internet. 

    However, is every piece of fake news generated using AI? Why is it essential to distinguish between an edited content and a deepfake and what is the role of platforms, the ECI, political parties, and the media in countering misinformation and fake news on social media? In this video, MediaNama Founder-Editor Nikhil Pahwa explores these questions and more.
