### Addressing Concerns: Should Synthetic Knowledge Elicit Worry?

MINNEAPOLIS: Within the realm of artificial intelligence, individuals are grappling with questions like, “What is genuine?” “What is fraudulent?” and “What purpose does our data serve?”

The exploration of all dimensions of artificial intelligence, particularly the associated risks such as the proliferation of fake AI-generated social ads and the heightened susceptibility to scams, is more critical now than ever before. Understanding the practical applications of AI is equally essential, ranging from groundbreaking advancements in healthcare to facilitating meaningful connections through dating platforms.

At the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management, Ravi Bapna occupies the Curtis L. Clarkson Chair in Business Analytics and Information Systems, focusing on AI-driven platforms like Tinder and OkCupid.

Bapna emphasizes that these platforms aim to facilitate connections between individuals in a manner that enhances the chances of compatibility and real-life interactions.

In the realm of political campaigns, AI is increasingly utilized leading up to the 2024 Election. Recently, the Republican National Committee released an AI-generated advertisement painting a bleak future under another Biden-Harris administration.

Individuals like Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon have expressed concerns about such advertisements and their potential to spread misinformation. Simon likened this phenomenon to old poison repackaged in a new container, highlighting the dangers of false information on elections, voter eligibility, and polling locations.

Senator Amy Klobuchar has taken proactive steps to address AI-related issues by proposing legislation focused on AI ethics, including regulations and the prohibition of deceptive AI-driven political ads.

Klobuchar stresses the importance of preventing the dissemination of misleading content online, particularly deepfake videos that blur the lines between reality and fiction.

While acknowledging the risks associated with AI, Mark Lanterman, Chief Technology Officer at Computer Forensic Services, also recognizes the significant strides being made in the healthcare sector.

Lanterman notes that AI is revolutionizing healthcare through personalized treatment plans and predictive diagnostics, enhancing patient outcomes and accelerating research efforts across various fields.
