Q. I have been reading a fair bit about the rise and future (and one may say even success) of synthetic media, especially in the developed economy given the rise of AI-written music, text and even video. Do you think we will soon see the nightly debates on Indian News TV being  run by AI?

 

A. It can’t be unless you are an advocate of deepfakes. While synthetic media is a reality, but news can’t be generated with artificial imagination. Analysis can be individual perspective-based , but it can’t be equated with the distortions that are potentially and allegedly possible in synthetic media.
