If we lived in a system where automation wasn't a treat to one's livelihood, then maybe I'd be more optimistic, but we're not there, and it doesn't take much to study the history of industrialization to see what happens when automation happens in a field.
And I'm not even touching on the part where AI art/audio/video, like deepfakes before them will enable even more sophisticated misinformation. Ppl can barely be bothered to check if a Twitter screenshot is true, imagine that w/ realistic enough pictures generated by the hundreds.
In a fucked up way we're "lucky" the last two years of Covid misinformation didn't happen when AI art was good enough to produce photographic "evidence".
