Legal/Ethical Issue in Mass Media: Deepfakes Edit

Deepfakes are the combined results of advanced artificial intelligence software programs and the modern phenomenon of fake news. The word 'deepfake,' a portmanteau of 'deep learning' (A.I. programs that mimic how human neural networks learn and process information) and 'fake,' describes the process of combining or superimposing videos and images onto a source video or image. Just like Photoshop can be used to create faceswaps (switching one person's face out for another's in a photo) deepfakes use their A.I. programs to substitute one person's face onto another, creating a fake yet realistic video. While this process is still relatively new, it has the potential to cause ethical and legal damage to victims of deepfake imagery.
