Jokowi Becomes Victim of AI, Kominfo Reveals Shocking Facts Tech – 19 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Artificial Intelligence (AI) is starting to be used for hoax information. One of them was used in a video showing President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) giving a speech in Mandarin.

“Reminding that the use of AI has begun to create hoaxes,” said the Director General of Intelligence at the Ministry of Communication and Information, Semuel Abrijani Pangerapan, at the Election Hoax Awareness Press Conference, Friday (27/10/2023).

The video related to Jokowi is written with the narration ‘Jokowi speaks Mandarin’ and is said to be a misleading video that has been edited. Semuel revealed the surprising fact that the original AI-edited video was discovered in 2015.

Irresponsible individuals then edited it in such a way as if Jokowi was using Mandarin.

In the Ministry of Communication and Information’s report, the video is the same as the one that appeared on The US-Indonesia Society (USINDO) YouTube channel on November 13 2015. The video is said to use AI deepfake technology and is labeled by Kominfo as disinformation content.

Semuel reminded the public to be careful with the use of AI for negative content. Because AI is being used more often and is becoming more sophisticated.

“The public is expected to be careful, because the use of AI is becoming more sophisticated and has started to be used for editing,” he said.

To avoid sources of false information, Semuel asked the public to seek information from trusted sources. Because it is impossible for an important event not to be covered by many media.

“It is hoped that it can suppress hoaxes, especially the use of hoaxes. At first glance, it looks like the original. It is very important that with advances in technology, players are already using this technology,” said Semuel.

Meanwhile, Minister of Communication and Information Budi Arie Setiadi revealed the phenomenon of hoaxes using AI. According to him, technology continues to emerge and becomes more sophisticated.

“Yes, not yet sophisticated [penggunaan AI untuk hoaks pada pemilu 2019]”Now it’s really sophisticated,” said Semuel.
