Amnesty International and the Artificial Intelligence Controversy – Amnesty International uses AI generated images to depict Colombian protests

Amnesty uses AI to create images of Colombian protests and draws criticism

The Colombian protests started on April 28th, 2021. They were sparked by an anti-tax reform by middle and working class Colombians.

Amnesty International’s use of AI-generated images to commemorate Colombian protests on the second anniversary has ignited a debate about the credibility of advocacy organizations and media in their coverage of conflict-affected zones.

Amnesty Norway’s regional account tweeted three images. The first image showed a group of police officers in armor; the second was a policeman with a red stain on his face and the third image showed a protester who was being dragged by police officials.
