Deepfakes and Generative AI: An Increasing Threat with Wide-Ranging Implications
The advent of deepfake technology, or the manipulation of images, video, text, or audio using artificial intelligence (AI), prompted many well-founded and wide-ranging concerns for society, including implications for the anti-fraud and investigative professions. Other recent forms of generative AI, such as Chat GPT variations, have only exacerbated these concerns. This presentation will cover the current capabilities and applications of deepfake technology to help the audience understand the risks associated with the technology, as well as how to address those risks and prepare for future impacts.
- Understand current capabilities and applications of deepfake and generative AI technologies
- Identify signs of AI manipulation in imagery and scenarios in which investigators might encounter manipulated imagery
- Consider implications for litigation and admissibility of evidence related to deepfake and generative AI technologies
