When a new advancement in technology is announced, those working within legal systems must rapidly prepare for how it will be misused to inflict harm, manipulate evidence and alter fact patterns. Historically, this has been true following the innovations of the Internet, social media, smartphones and more. Artificial intelligence is no exception, driving harmful new advances in the field of digital impersonation -- such as 'Deepfake' videos.
For example, this technology is used to make it falsely appear a victim was in a pornographic video they were in fact not in; alter audio or video evidence and perpetrate cybercrime. This development puts technologically sophisticated tools in the hands of unsophisticated bad actors and it is proliferating rapidly.
Learning Objectives -- By the end of this session participants will be able to:
