Tackling deepfakes 'has turned into an arms race'

Published March 26, 2024


BBC quotes Siwei Lyu in an article discussing how figuring out how to deal with deepfakes has become a race among different firms. Lyu notes there is a degree of urgency to solving the problem, warning that video conferencing may be the next target for criminals. “Not far in the future you could be plugged into a Zoom call, and you think you are talking to me, but it might be a virtual version of me. Somebody might use my image and create that as a deepfake presence in the zoom call.”
