Deepfakes Seminar: Fiction, Politics, and Algorithms

In the era of post-truth, where false information is designed and created as a tool to gain economic or political benefits, the ability to trace and verify the origin of content is a significant challenge. However, the fact that most Deepfake videos are obviously fake makes them simultaneously unsettling and intriguing.
In this seminar, we aim to generate discussion and practical work regarding the ethics, aesthetics, and policies of the machine learning algorithms used to create Deepfakes.
