AI Deepfakes Are Altering and Manipulating Our Reality

The manipulation and fabrication of digital images and videos is not a new phenomenon. However, recent developments in AI and deep neural networks have made the process of creating face-swapping deepfakes faster and easier. Deepfakes are being used to intimidate, demean, harass, undermine, and destabilize. This sophisticated synthetic media constitutes a new and unique challenge in the broader battle against online disinformation and the weaponization of technology.
