Was Tom Cruise really in Divisoria? Was Dwayne Johnson, formerly known as The Rock, really eating street food?
These photos went viral on social media, but they're not true!
As seen on Oscar Oida's report on "24 Oras," Wednesday, they're fake photos created with artificial intelligence (AI) image generating software.
Those particular photos were created by Jon Oraña, an AI and business consultant.
"Pag sinabi kasi natin sa mga kababayan nating AI, artificial intelligence, nosebleed, walang papansin sa atin. Papano ba natin sila ma-e-educate? E, 'di bigyan natin ng magpapasaya sa lahat, e 'yun ang nangyari gumawa tayo ng images na 'di nila inaasahan," said Jon.
"'Yung ginawa naman natin is entertainment. Naging malinaw naman tayo sa post na these are AI generated," he added.
Tech editor Art Samaniego did a sample demonstration of creating a photo of Tom Cruise playing basketball on "24 Oras."
Jon said Filipinos can have better opportunities if they adapt well, but Art also warned about the dangers of technology.
"Ang technology kasi pwede magamit sa masama so double edged sword ito e," Art said. "Kailangan magkaroon ng policy talaga at ng regulation ang mga bansa para 'di maabuso ang AI. Napaka powerful ng AI o artificial intelligence."
Ronald Gustilo of Digital Pinoys, a network of digital advocates, said AI abuses fall under the anti-cybercrime law.
"Sa pagtingin natin at sa pag konsulta natin sa legal experts, covered naman 'yan, lalo na 'yung mga libelous na images na pwede i-generate," he said.
