A startlingly realistic new breed of AI-driven faked videos is starting to emerge, circulated by propagandists and other shadowy actors via social platforms. These videos appear to show news events, or public figures speaking, and seem to be published by legitimate news outlets. However, they are in fact highly sophisticated AI-driven video forgeries. This session explores what strategies and technologies news outlets and consumers should be adopting to defend themselves against this frightening new development.
