Please don't be naive about this. Think about all the ways it could be used - to excuse the guilty OR to incriminate the innocent.
#deepfakes were created to incriminate POTUS as soon as he took office.

Ben Fulford claimed blackmail existed on Trump. He was unknowingly referring to the #deepstatedeepfake.

1. Talking at #EmTechDigital today on 'Preparing for #Deepfakes: Trust and Truth' placing in broader framework of how we think about AI and social good. My cliffnotes here in this thread events.technologyreview.com/emtech/digital… (in great company with @red_abebe and @latonero)
2. Quick intro for those don't know @witnessorg; work on helping anyone, anywhere using video and tech for human rights. We're focused on making you more effective, ethical and safe if you do. And that means also keeping eye out for emerging tech threats witness.org
3. Big emerging tech threats we're concerned about now are: #AI at intersection with #disinformation, #media manipulation and rising #authoritarianism. We know this is where the rubber hits the road for activists and civic witnesses on the ground.

1. New theory on #TheStorm: There will be no storm. This is slow starvation for the #Cabal. Q said “bait expends ammunition.” He baited them into using their ammo (a Bush on ice) for GHWB Funeral to stall #Directive5 & Huber testimony on Clinton Foundation. #RBG next.
2. He also said, “Hints expend ammunition.” We’ve seen this time and time again - #FISA declass hint resulted in NYT op ed, HRC “blank blank blank” video drop hint resulted in “#DeepFakes” AI video tech story, now long forgotten by the public.
3. In the words of Sting in his song, “Shape of My Heart”: “He may conceal a king in his hand, while the memory of it fades.” When ammunition is expended, the fingerprint in public consciousness only lasts so long. This song is about using #Babylonian #BlackArts #ChaosMagick

Since people have been asking I thought I'd recap my #dystopia talk at @theuxcrunch from Thursday. The examples used are not what if scenarios. These all happened. #triggerwarning's apply. If you can make it thru to the end I have suggestions for how we can claw back some hope.
This is a quote you’ve all probably seen a million times. #Advertising & #techie shitheads love quoting it before they do trends porn. What they never seem to understand is how politically subversive the last bit is. B/c those wankers abuse it I swore I’d never use it.
Still, paraphrasing it is useful for my point. One person’s future is another person’s dystopia and thanks to the fundamental power of the Internet as a tool for distribution we can spread dystopia far and wide. Often before we know it, realise it, or even imagine it.

1/ THREAD. What are possible #solutions to the threats #deepfakes and synthetic media could pose to evidence, truth and freedom of expression? Our survey from recent @witnessorg @firstdraftnews expert convening.
2/ Invest in MEDIA LITERACY + RESILIENCE/discernment for news consumers - how to spot both individual items of synthetic media (e.g. via visible anomalies such as mouth distortion often present in current deepfakes) as well as develop approaches to assessing image credibility
3/ Recent examples sharing commonsense guidance on this e.g. @CraigSilverman buzzfeed.com/craigsilverman… and @samanthsunne gijn.org/2018/05/28/wha…

1/ What are #deepfakes + #AI generated synthetic media; what threats do they pose to #humanrights, #journalism and #publicsphere? What should we fear? What can we do? Thread w/ key tech + usages from recent expert mtg summarizing blog.witness.org/2018/07/deepfa…
2/We've had fake images and CGI for years, so what's different now (beyond enabling us to transplant Nicolas Cage's face to other people). The ease of making #deepfakes is captured by the vlogger Tom Scott
3/ = Barriers to entry to manipulate audio and video are falling - costs less, needs less tech expertise, uses open-source code + cloud computing power. Plus, sophistication of manipulation of social media spaces by bad actors makes it easier to weaponize and to micro-target.
