U.S Special Forces Want to Use Deepfakes for Psy-Ops | The Intercept

Must Read

The US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) has expressed an interest in developing advanced technologies for use in “influence operations, digital deception, communication disruption, and disinformation campaigns”.  

SOCOM released a document in 2020 that listed its desire to acquire futuristic tools and gadgets to help hunt and kill targets, but an updated version released in October 2020 added a new section entitled “Advanced technologies for use in Military Information Support Operations (MISO)”. The section seeks to enable MISO to “craft and direct influence operations”, with a “next-generation capability” for collecting data through public and open-source information streams. The special forces have a history of using secret missions, subterfuge, sabotage, and disruption campaigns. The proposals are being accepted by SOCOM until 2025.
