1-2-3: Indistinguishable

1 idea, 2 resources, and 3 tools for this week.

Welcome to Ponderer's 24th edition.

Here are 1 idea to ponder, 2 resources to skill up, and 3 tools to try out.

Let’s do it.



The Big Idea

“How do we know what’s real anymore?” — Roberto Nickson  

Roberto explains that last year none of what he is able to do today was possible for him. Just recently he created a video with AI tools that took him about 3 hours to get done from start to finish.

Next year, he predicts, real versus AI-assisted video content will be completely indistinguishable.

These tools will be used to do a lot of good in the world. Inevitably, they will also be used to do the wrong things.

You can find more about it and how he did it, in the resources section below.
