On Monday, freelance journalist Sean Craig noticed that dozens of Twitter accounts were tweeting identical messages and sharing a link to a press release about a controversial smart neighbourhood that's been proposed by Sidewalk Labs, a subsidiary of Google's parent company Alphabet.
...
Verdi noted that many of the accounts used images of people wearing sunglasses, a clue that they may have been photos generated using a neural network rather than real photos of people. "Eyes are hard," Verdi said.

Tianjic is engineered so that its individual processing units can switch from spiking communications back to binary and perform a large range of calculations, in almost all cases faster and more efficiently than a GPU can. To demonstrate the chip's abilities, the researchers threw together a self-driving bicycle that ran three different AI algorithms on a single chip simultaneously.
...
Despite the low clockspeed, the Tianjic put up some impressive numbers when run against the same algorithms implemented on an NVIDIA Titan-Xp. Performance ranged from 1.6 times to 100 times, depending on the algorithm. And, when energy use was considered, the performance per Watt was almost comical, ranging from 12x all the way up to over 10,000x.

But to an automatic license plate reader (ALPR) system, the shirt is a collection of license plates, and they will get added to the license plate reader’s database just like any others it sees. The intention is to make deploying that sort of surveillance less effective, more expensive, and harder to use without human oversight, in order to slow down the transition to what Rose calls “visual personally identifying data collection”.

Maybe people will just stop considering video evidence as "truth". And that will be a good thing for defamation purposes. For police work it will be hell, you will have to have a very good chain of custody to prove the video as legitimate evidence.

I think it's going to be an issue in politics for awhile. Partly because people take things they see or read at face value all the time.
