Summary:
So-called “deep fake” technologies have the potential to create audio and video of real people saying and doing things they never said or did. The technology required to create these digital forgeries is rapidly developing. It is on the verge of becoming commoditized to the point where anybody with a laptop computer, very modest investment in software and minimal technical skill will have the capability to create realistic audiovisual forgeries. Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence techniques are making deep fakes increasingly realistic and resistant to detection. Individuals and businesses will face novel forms of exploitation, intimidation, and sabotage. Things have been bad with disinformation polluting the information environment. They are about to get a lot worse. What is to be done?
