Stanford Internet and Society Lab - "Deepfakes" in the Courtroom

October 30, 2018
Stanford Law School

New software tools use artificial intelligence to create realistic-looking but fake videos of real people seeming to say and do things they never did. These so-called "deepfakes" will soon cause a number of problems for the courts, particularly when it comes to authenticating evidence in litigation. They may even undermine the justice system by eroding juries' belief in the knowability of what is real. Come discuss the implications of deepfakes for trial practice with CIS Cryptography Fellow Riana Pfefferkorn.
