Policy, Guns and Money: Weaponised deep fakes

In this episode, Hannah Smith of ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre and the Australian National University’s Katherine Mansted speak about their new ASPI report, Weaponised deep fakes.

Deep fakes are digital forgeries created through artificial intelligence that can be used to make entirely new content or manipulate existing content, including video, images, audio and text.

They could be used to defame targets or impersonate or blackmail elected officials. They can also be used in conjunction with cybercrime operations.
