US Justice Raises AI Misuse Concerns Over Biden Deepfake Audio

The release of an audio recording of a special counsel's interview with President Joe Biden might spark deepfakes and misinformation.

The department acknowledged that the US government could only prevent the misuse of artificial intelligence after this year's election.

A senior Justice Department official expressed the concerns in a court filing on Friday, attempting to justify keeping the tape secret.

The Biden administration is trying to persuade a judge to suppress the release of the recording of the president's interview, which centered on his handling of secret materials.

The revelation exposes the potential impact of AI-manipulated misinformation on voting, as well as the federal government's limited ability to resist it.
