Course Description

With Deepfake videos the ability to manipulate audio, video and images has created a fundamental trust problem and is a major corporate threat. Soon, we literally might not be able to believe our own eyes or ears when trying to detect and deter corporate fraud, for example disgruntled employees creating fake clips of their supervisor or co-employee to undermine them or get them fired, or changing a voicemail recording of what a person said to support a false claim. Additionally, so called "pump and dump" schemes use a combination of fake audios and videos to quickly spread corporate misinformation to impact high-frequency trading algorithms that rely on digital information to make investment calls. In the courtroom sophisticated AI generated images has raised issues related to legal challenges to digital evidence based on authenticity, with similar problems in e-discovery. Of course, the cultural and political ramifications, and privacy and social media concerns about deepfake videos becomes more evident every day.
