Debates a tool for making deepfakes, not just the candidates
WHAT: Debates are among the long-standing ways for presidential candidates to get their message out to voters. But the lengthy video resulting from the debates could feed the newest way to mislead voters: deepfakes.
EXPERT: Edward Delp, the Charles William Harrison Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University, can talk about what the debates and their video footage means for creating deepfakes as well as his continuing research in detecting manipulated deepfakes videos
QUOTE: “Anything that creates more content, including debates, speeches, press conferences and political TV ads, will aid in the making of more deepfakes.”
- Release: “Can you trust what you see?”
- Delp is director of the Video and Imaging Processing Laboratory at Purdue University.
