Everything you need to know about “deep fake” image manipulation and what could become the biggest information and communications meltdown in world history.
In a world of Deep Fakes, it will soon be impossible to tell what is real and what isn’t. As advances in artificial intelligence, image manipulation, and online trolling continue, Deep Fakes pose not only a real threat to democracy — they threaten to take voter manipulation to unprecedented new heights. This crisis of misinformation which we now face has since been dubbed the “Infocalypse.”
In DEEP FAKES, investigative journalist Nina Schick uses her expertise from working in the field to reveal shocking examples of Deep Fakery and explain the dangerous political consequences of the Infocalypse, both in terms of national security and what it means for public trust in politics. This all-too-timely book also unveils what this all means for us as individuals, how Deep Fakes will be used to intimidate and to silence, for revenge and fraud, and just how truly unprepared governments and tech companies are for what’s coming.
