AI call quiz: see if you can spot the sham audio of Trump and Biden

Deepfakes have arrived to US elections, with a faked audio call purporting to be Joe Biden reaching voters in New Hampshire earlier this year.

Artificial intelligence tools allow people to create spoofed audio easily and cheaply – so easily and cheaply that a journalist can do it!

We created some fake audio clips of both Biden and Donald Trump using Parrot AI, an app with audio renditions of public figures that users can input words into. You can make audio of what sounds like Biden, Trump or a host of other high-profile speaking, and it sounds real-ish.

Just how real depends on the discerning ear of the listener. This quiz includes both real audio clips from public remarks Trump and Biden have made and fake clips that we created in Parrot AI.

Listen to the audio clips below and then answer the quiz questions. Can you tell the difference between what’s real and what’s fake?

Clip 1 – Biden says “How in the hell dare he raise that?”
