Steve Wozniak, a co-founder of Apple, has issued a warning that the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) may make it more difficult to detect fraud and false information. 

Mr. Wozniak claims he is concerned that "bad actors" will use the technology. 

In an interview with the BBC, he stated that regulations were required for the industry and that AI content should be explicitly labeled.

The computer pioneer and Elon Musk co-signed a letter in March calling for a halt to the creation of the most potent AI models. 

Mr. Wozniak, also referred to as Woz in the tech industry, is a veteran of Silicon Valley who co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs and created the original Apple computer.

He spoke with Zoe Kleinman, the BBC's technology editor, on the advantages of AI as well as his worries.

He said: "AI is so intelligent it's open to the bad players, the ones that want to trick you about who they are." 

The word "AI" refers to computer systems that are capable of doing tasks that ordinarily require human intelligence. This includes computer programs that can recognize things in images and can react to inquiries with responses that sound human-like.

Because AI lacks emotion, Mr. Wozniak doesn't think it will ever completely replace people, but he did issue a warning that, in his opinion, it will make bad actors even more convincing because tools like ChatGPT can produce language that "sounds so intelligent."
