US Bans AI-Generated Robocalls to Combat Scams
The United States has implemented a ban on AI-generated robocalls, responding to a surge in voice cloning incidents that have scammed citizens.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) highlighted the use of AI-generated voices in unsolicited robocalls, which exploit vulnerable individuals by imitating trusted figures or celebrities.
Recent advancements in AI technology have made these fraudulent calls more convincing and challenging to detect.
The ban aims to curb such deceptive practices, especially in the context of potential voter suppression schemes and election misinformation.
