Artificial Intelligence divides our society

1 min read

Dazhon Darien allegedly impersonated Eric Eiswert’s voice with artificial intelligence, in a clip that went viral and was widely shared on social media.

In the forged audio, it sounded as if the principal had said “ungrateful” black students “couldn’t test their way out of a paper bag” – and had also disparaged Jewish people.

Detectives believe Darien faked the clip in revenge following a conversation about his poor work performance, and a suggestion that his contract at the school would not be renewed.

Those talks had followed allegations that Darien had paid his roommate about £1,500 ($1,900) in school funds under the false pretence of coaching the girls’ soccer team.

Court documents said the recording had “profound implications” – with Mr Eiswert suspended, his family left at “significant risk” and police officers providing security at his house.

It also triggered a wave of hate-filled messages on social media and a flood of phone calls to Pikesville High School in Baltimore County, Maryland.
