Interview with the Salzburger Nachrichten

The Austrian newspaper "Salzburger Nachrichten" has published a short interview with Professor Thiel on the topic of generative AI and the dangers of manipulation, especially through audio deep fakes. The article can be found here in the online version (but is behind a paywall). To summarise, it is doubtful that it is possible or even sensible to think about individual media literacy as a means of countering such deep fakes and that more thought should be given to regulatory strategies, although this has already begun.
