Professor Sandra Wachter, an expert in Technology and Regulation, discusses the rise of deepfakes, how to identify them, and the implications for online safety. Deepfakes are recreated media using artificial intelligence, and while creating them is not illegal, regulations may apply if they infringe on others’ rights. Spotting deepfakes online is currently possible but becoming more challenging as technology advances. To combat this, new laws and tools are being developed to differentiate between real and AI-generated content.

Key Themes

1. Deepfakes: Recreated media using artificial intelligence, such as fake images, videos, and audio recordings.
2. Online Safety Regulations: Laws governing online safety, with potential consequences for violating rights through deepfakes.
3. Detection of Deepfakes: Methods and tools to spot AI-generated content to ensure online safety.
