Visual evidence is not rock solid
DHS says deepfakes and misuse of synthetic AI content pose a clear, present, and evolving threat to the public, national security, law enforcement, financial and societal domains. Deepfakes are a nightmare for evidence in court.
How deepfakes can alter what you remember
Deepfakes can be used to manipulate and alter people’s memories—a phenomenon known as the Mandela Effect. The rise of deepfakes makes it easier to spread misinformation and manipulate public opinion by altering people’s memories of past events.
Deep reaching implications of deepfakes
Deepfakes use AI to create realistic-looking videos and images of people saying and doing things they never actually said or did.
As of 2019, there were fewer than 15,000 deepfakes detected online. Today, that number is in the millions—with the number of expert-crafted deepfakes continuing to increase at an annual rate of 900%, according to the World Economic Forum.
One of the most concerning aspects of deepfakes is their potential to be used for malicious purposes, such as creating fake news or propaganda, impersonating someone for financial gain, character assassination. What’s real? What’s propaganda? The technology is also being used to create deepfake pornography, raising concerns about exploitation of individuals and potential for abuse.
Deepfakes have the power to make people believe they have seen something that never actually happened due to the highly realistic nature of the technology. This could ultimately cause them to misremember an untrue scenario as fact.
