Executive Summary

In the past few years there has been an incredible growth in the synthetic media known as “deepfake”, a blend of “deep learning” and “fake”.

With this rapid development in recent years, governments, companies and individuals will now need to learn to live with such media technology and the benefits and risks it presents. Individuals will need to be prepared for anyone being able to create a deepfake video from their smart phone. Videos able to look close enough to genuine have the potential to cause embarrassment, reputational damage, or worse.

Watch this video to see how easily deepfake videos can be created, simply by using a photograph with the Telegraph’s “AI Brings Mona Lisa to Life”.
