Webinar Recording | Deep Fakes: Innovate, Facilitate or Regulate?

On the back of the recently cancelled SXSW conference, we broadcasted our session via a live webinar on 8 April from 11 am EDT/3 pm BST. Join our panellists as they examine what deep fakes are, why they are so controversial and if there are there redeeming use cases. Watch the full Webinar recording here.

The US Congress introduced twelve bills that ban or regulate the technology and the Trump Administration marked it for future export control action. But why is it so controversial? The technology behind Deep Fakes has the power to improve medical diagnosis, help astronomers map the stars, improve autonomous vehicle safety, and even save civilian lives in war. It could also be key for democracies competing on AI development.
