WITNESS helps people use video and technology to fight for human rights. Recognizing the threat that deepfakes pose to trust in video, WITNESS has been at the forefront of global activities—in coordination with technical researchers, policy-makers, companies, media organizations, journalists and civic activists—aimed at building better preparedness for deepfakes. An advocate, media producer and legal researcher, Dalila leads WITNESS' global engagement and works on innovative approaches to digital activism and the meaningful exchange of tools/tactics on the creation of trustworthy video, use of video as evidence, filming for advocacy, and digital security. Her team’s materials reach 1M+ people each year with critical guidance on documenting abuses and ensure trustworthy video is seen from critical stories around the world. Dalila has trained activists and key stakeholders including the UNFPA, European Inter-University Centre, Google, and the International Bar Association.

Deepfakes and Synthetic Video: Don't Panic, Prepare
Add to Calendar 02/20/2020 16:15 02/20/2020 17:00 Europe/London Deepfakes and Synthetic Video: Don't Panic, Prepare Deepfakes have become a critical concern for celebrities and politicians. But as more sophisticated, more personalized, more convincing audio and video manipulation rapidly emerge, how do we get beyond the apocalyptic discussion of the end of trust in images and audio? We need to take the opportunity before we‘re in the eye of the storm for many potentially dangerous usages to instead focus on what we can do about malicious deepfakes and other AI-manipulated synthetic media. At WITNESS, the human rights network that helps people use video and technology to fight for their rights, we‘ve been leading cross-industry and civil society work to better understand what to do now. Based on our collaborations with technologists, media companies, platforms, journalists, and civic activists, you‘ll learn about types of deepfake and synthetic media, what‘s possible with the technology, the threats people are really worried about, and what we can do to defend truth, accuracy, and our faces and voices. | ICC Capital Suite Room 11 | false MM/DD/YYYY
