Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has expressed concern that advances in artificial intelligence could make it harder to detect scams and misinformation.

Speaking to the BBC, Wozniak suggested that AI could be harnessed by "bad actors" who use its sophisticated abilities to deceive people. He said that, in particular, programmes like ChatGPT, which can create human-like text, could be used to make scams even more convincing.

Wozniak believes that anything generated by AI and posted to the public should be the responsibility of the person who publishes it.

He also called for regulation to ensure accountability among big tech firms. While he expressed scepticism about whether regulators could be relied on to get things right, Wozniak said that people could be better educated to spot fraud and malicious attempts to take personal information.
