Fighting shallowfakes globally without compromising critical voices
Stories, live, memes, photos videos dominate our social. And shallowfaked images and videos with false captions or simple edits frequently deceive us. Now proposals for more robust ways to track whether images, video and audio have been manipulated, mis-contextualized or edited, and when and by who are starting to proliferate -- including Adobe's Content Authenticity Initiative and incipient discussions about using reverse video search, similarity search and perceptual hashing to better track content provenance or known manipulated media. However, global civil society needs to be more centered in the discussion around how we track and understand real and faked, and how those should relate to free expression, privacy and access to technology. Using key dilemmas based in WITNESS' experiences engaging on these technologies/initiatives as an interactive framework for discussion we'll talk key questions to address early, how this is happening to-date and what happens going forward.
