Paper of Dorje Brody on generative AI and fake news published in The Conversation

The paper “Generative AI model shows fake news has a greater influence on elections when released at a steady pace without interruption“, authored by Dorje Brody, has been published in The Conversation (link here). It is not clear that disinformation has, to date, swung an election. But there is a strong sense that it has had a significant impact, nonetheless. To study this problem, a generative model becomes handy because it can create many histories. A generative model is a mathematical model for the root cause of an observed event, along with a guiding principle that tells you in which way the cause (input) turns into an observed event (output).
