Putin using AI to write his speeches claims expert as health fears grow

Vladimir Putin has been accused of using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to write his speeches as concerns around his health grow, an expert has claimed.

President Putin warned on Friday that he would be stepping up his AI plans, stating that a much more ambitious Russian strategy for the development of technology would be approved shortly.


He cautioned that the West should not be allowed to develop a monopoly in the sphere of AI.

However, as he ramps up his efforts to gain dominance of the AI market, an expert on security and intelligence thinks the President may be overlying on the technology.

Professor Anthony Glees, from the University of Buckingham, told GB News: “It looks to me as if his words were themselves generated by an artificial intelligence algorithm.

“The sounds are there but there’s no meaning behind them.”

Speaking on the statement, Glees added: “It’s not even a ‘Western’ advance, his pal Xi Jingping is almost as good as Silicon Valley at developing the kit.

“He’s not got a snowball’s chance in hell of catching up the massive American and Chinese leads in constructing AI enabled computers.”

The claim comes after Putin’s reported deteriorating health has made headlines around the world.

Last month, it was claimed Putin had suffered a cardiac arrest in Moscow on October 26, according to Telegram channel General SVR.

PUTIN LATEST:

An inside source alleged that the Russian leader had become unwell, but this was denied by the Kremlin.

Experts have suggested that Putin has been using body doubles in public appearances due to his crippling health.

AI was used by Japanese TV network TBS to examine his facial features as well as the way he moved, and the investigation found there was only a 53 per cent match to previous footage of the President.

Putin has hit back at the Western dominance of the AI market, in which he wishes to carve out a Russian space.

He has claimed that AI Models such as ChatGPT threaten to “cancel Russian culture” and he wants to curb the West’s command of the technology.

Speaking at an AI conference in Moscow last week, Putin noted that it was “imperative to use Russian solutions in the field of creating reliable and transparent artificial intelligence systems that are also safe for humans”.

“Monopolistic dominance of such foreign technology in Russia is unacceptable, dangerous, and inadmissible,” Putin said.

He noted that “many modern systems, trained on Western data are intended for the Western market” and “reflect that part of Western ethics, norms of behaviour, public policy to which we object”.

Glees rejected the president’s claims that AI dominance was solely a Western threat, stating that: “It’s not even a ‘Western’ advance, his pal Xi Jing Ping is almost as good as Silicon Valley as developing the kit.

“He’s not got a snowball’s chance in hell of catching up the massive American and Chinese leads in constructing AI-enabled computers.”

Putin has vowed to pour additional resources into the development of supercomputers and other technologies to help intensify national AI research.

Geoffrey Hinton, a British-Canadian computer scientist frequently dubbed the “godfather of AI”, mentioned the Russian president in an interview earlier this year, saying that Putin may want to use the technology “for winning wars or manipulating electorates”.

Putin stressed the need for competitive Russian AI technology at the summit: “We are talking about expanding fundamental and applied research in the field of generative artificial intelligence and large language models

“In the era of technological revolution, it is the cultural and spiritual heritage that is the key factor in preserving national identity, and therefore the diversity of our world, and the stability of international relations.”
