You've heard about fake telephone calls and AI-generated propaganda videos. But how are deepfakes created? How can you identify deepfakes? And what can you do to protect your image, your voice, and your work? This workshop will provide a beginner-friendly overview of how artificial intelligent tools interpret pictures and sound to generate new images, video, and voices. We'll discuss how these techniques are being used for research, in the film industry, and across campus to support new scholarship and creative works. We'll also identify strategies for recognizing deepfakes and tools that you can use to protect your own image and voice.
