From Post-Truth to AI-Truth

The Oxford Dictionary named „post-truth“ as the Word of the Year for 2016, officially ushering in the post-truth era. The truth of post-truth is far more complex than its literal meaning. Who defines fake news? And now, with the rise of AI, texts and images generated by AI are becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish. In the era of AI-truth, who has the right to explain and own the truth? Who defines the truth? Is it the authorities, news publishers or mass communicators?
