NATO STRATCOMCOE considers rise of "deep fakes" online

Take note – story published 3 years ago

The Rīga-based NATO Strategic Communications Center of Excellence (STRATCOMCOE) hosts another in its series of online discussions May 6.  

This time the title is  "Deepfakes: Current Status, Forecast and Recommendations" with Tim Hwang (Director, Harvard-MIT Ethics and Governance of AI Initiative),  Keir Giles (Research Director, Conflict Studies Research Centre) and Jānis Sārts (Director, NATO StratCom COE).

"Could a well-timed video hoax be launched by a malicious actor to disrupt an election? Might a massive wave of high-fidelity fakes swamp social media platforms and further erode trust in the media and institutions?" asks the advance publicity.

"This discussion will provide a primer to deepfakes and forecast their potential future role in online disinformation campaigns. It will offer recommendations to those seeking to address the threat," it adds. 

The event will be livestreamed on 6 May 16:00 Rīga time (GMT+3) on STRATCOMCOE's Facebook and YouTube channels, and we will provide live links here on LSM, too.
