The Information Age has led to the birth of the Misinformation Age. Commercial and open-source projects exist that can allow anyone to create a “deepfake” video. This has caused industry leaders such as DARPA, Microsoft, Facebook, Intel, and Adobe to pursue initiatives to help people to discern whether online content should be trusted. These initiatives have even gone down to the hardware level with companies such as Qualcomm who recently added the ability to perform hardware-secured photo capture to their latest Snapdragon mobile processors. This presentation will share an overview of the current state of deepfake technology and then explore the different proposals for combatting misinformation including a detailed discussion on the Content Authenticity Initiative.
