Tendulkar stated, “It is alarming to see widespread misuse of technology.”
Unexpectedly, on Monday, cricket great Sachin Tendulkar published a video in which he angrily denied having anything to do with a contentious gaming game. Tendulkar was shown endorsing the app in the video, complimenting its seeming capacity to make quick money and even asserting that his daughter had made use of the platform for financial advantage.
The renowned cricket player used social media to refute the video, calling it “fake” and expressing his serious concerns about technology abuse. Renowned for his remarkable abilities in cricket, Tendulkar made it clear that he was unaware of these kinds of activities and emphasized the importance of using technology responsibly. The voice in the video remarkably resembled the cricket maestro, leaving the followers of the giants of cricket stunned.
“These are not real videos. The widespread misuse of technology is unsettling. We kindly ask everyone to report these kinds of movies, advertisements, and apps in bulk. Social media sites must be vigilant and quick to address grievances. Tendulkar wrote on social networking platform X, “They must act quickly to curb the spread of misinformation and deepfakes.
As the digital world changes, deepfakes are becoming more common.
Combining the terms “deep learning” and “fake,” “deepfakes” refer to artificial intelligence-based, highly sophisticated simulations that produce remarkably lifelike audio and video output. These computer-generated images pose significant moral and social issues since they may show people acting or saying things they never did. The global democratic institutions, personal reputations, and the integrity of information are all seriously threatened by this blurring of the distinctions between fact and fiction.
There is a great deal of potential for harm, including the dissemination of false information and personal assaults, which can disrupt political processes, inspire violence, or even spark international events. The quick development and widespread availability of deepfake technology present a significant obstacle to detection and control, although attempts to mitigate it through laws and technological safeguards.
