Disrupting Disinformation

An analogy of ‘deepfakes’.

The disinformation campaigns that may occur with the emergence of synthetic media or ‘deepfakes’ could augment the era of ‘fake news’. With the employment of deepfakes technology, false or altered video and audio clips could be used to smear people, denigrate the media, deny people the right to representation or provide misleading information.

  1. Fake news creators who engage in creating realistic but wholly false media.
  2. Fake news recipients or you and I, who are vulnerable to the altered content.
