Merriam-Webster Dictionary Announces "Authentic" as the Word of the Year for 2023


Authentic: The Anxiety of Authenticity

Merriam-Webster Dictionary has announced "Authentic" as the Word of the Year for 2023! The advent and rapid development of artificial intelligence tools like Deepfake and ChatGPT have blurred the lines between genuine and fake, causing significant concerns about the authenticity of what we see. "Authentic" being selected as the representative word for 2023 in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary partly mirrors people's yearning for authenticity and the anxiety associated with it in this era of powerful technology.

The Mission of the Times

The advancement of technology has made the production of counterfeit goods easier and has made it more challenging for consumers to distinguish between genuine and fake products. In such a market environment, if brands fail to provide consumers with a reliable identification mechanism, they risk not only losing sales but also eroding consumer trust in the brand. A robust security identification mechanism not only ensures that consumers purchase genuine products but also signifies a brand's commitment to defending authenticity.
