Warren Buffett's AI-Nuke Comparison: Deepfake Doppelganger Encounter

Warren Buffett, the co-founder of Berkshire Hathaway and the ninth richest person in the world, spoke about artificial intelligence (AI) deepfakes and the prevalence of scammers at the company’s annual shareholder meeting. Despite the death of vice chairman Charlie Munger, Buffett commended the company’s growth and resilience during the meeting held in Omaha, Nebraska. The discussion eventually shifted towards AI.

Buffett admitted that he had limited knowledge of AI but recognized its importance. He drew a parallel between AI’s potential in illicit financial activities and the impact of the atomic bomb and nuclear weapons. He recounted an experience where he encountered a deepfake doppelganger that looked and behaved exactly like him. This incident made Buffett realize that investing in scamming could become an immensely profitable industry, fueled by the advancements in AI.

Notably, Berkshire Hathaway has a significant investment in Apple, the world’s second most valuable company. Microsoft, which surpassed Apple in value and partnered with OpenAI, has become a leader in AI. Apple has been striving to catch up, focusing their efforts on generative AI products. Despite Buffett’s concerns about the potential dangers of AI, his company’s investment portfolio includes a major stake in a company that heavily relies on AI technologies.

Buffett’s apprehension about AI is not new, as he has expressed his worries before. He believes that the rise of deepfakes and AI-powered scams poses significant risks. He does acknowledge that AI also holds potential for positive advancements. Based on his recent encounter with a deepfake, Buffett humorously mentioned that he would even send money to himself repeatedly in a fictitious country, highlighting the convincing nature of AI-generated content.

During the Q&A session at the shareholder meeting, Buffett emphasized that he does not ignore the existence or importance of AI, despite his limited understanding of the technology. While he acknowledges the potential dangers, his comments also indicate a cautious optimism and recognition of the positive aspects of AI. For Buffett, AI technology represents a double-edged sword with immense possibilities for both good and harm.
