In this gripping episode of "Brain Bites," Dr. Alexandra Quinn delves into the potentially alarming consequences of the rapidly advancing AI-generated content, particularly deepfakes, on our perception of history. As digital artifacts begin to dominate our understanding of past events, the integrity and authenticity of historical records are threatened.

From videos of historical figures taken out of context to entirely AI-fabricated events that never happened, the distinction between genuine and fabricated becomes increasingly blurred. Dr. Quinn highlights the sophisticated tools and measures, like blockchain verification and detection programs, being developed to combat this menace.

However, with AI's pace of growth, the battle for preserving the true essence of history is intensifying. The episode serves as a poignant reminder that while technology can be a boon, it can also challenge the very fabric of our understanding of the past.
