Don’t believe your eyes (or ears):  The weaponization of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deepfakes  | War on the Rocks

Deepfakes, which are videos displaying damaging and counterfeited scenarios, are becoming a very real concern with the emergence of apps like FaceSwap. A prominent example came from a Reddit user who swapped a famous celebrity’s face with a woman in a pornography video which turned into a hearing at the House Intelligence Committee. Computer algorithms exist now that can mimic human activity and processes of the brain, allowing people to manipulate media in a way that is convincing. In even larger scenarios, this kind of weapon could be used to spread political propaganda and meddle with elections or military operations. Not only can experts within the US use this to make others look bad, but terrorists and enemies abroad could threaten US interests.
