Deepfakes Day 2022
August 30, 2022 | Online
Join us for Deepfakes Day hosted by the Software Engineering Institute
A deepfake is a media file—image, video, or speech, typically representing a human subject—that has been modified deceptively using deep neural networks (DNNs) to alter a person’s identity. Due to advances in machine learning, the tools for making deepfake audio and video content are becoming both more refined and more accessible at a rapid pace. These factors are leading to an increased incidence of deepfakes and, as a result, increased security risks. Deepfakes Day will present a series of talks explaining what deepfakes are, how they are made, the risks they pose, and approaches for detecting and mitigating them.
Review the event presentations from Shannon Gallagher, Thomas Scanlon, Eileen Angulo, Dominic Ross, and Catherine Bernaciak of Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute, and Dr. William Corvey of DARPA.
