Saving Society from Deepfakes: A Practical Policy Agenda for Today

Saving Society from Deepfakes: A Practical Policy Agenda for Today

Speaking Engagement

Deepfakes are well established in America’s cultural conscious. In fact, two deepfakes were recently created in relation to the 2020 elections. The challenge now is not to raise awareness, but to propose and develop effective solutions.

At this SXSW Online panel, Counsel Matthew Ferraro will join Kathryn Harrison, the CEO of Deeptrust Alliance, and Sam Mulopulos, a legislative assistant at the US Senate, to discuss legal, political and policy-based solutions to deepfakes. They will cover First Amendment issues related to deepfakes and detail the policy space legislators have to address synthetic media. They will also lay out the legal remedies available to individuals affected by deepfakes. This session will take participants to the frontier of deepfakes—now that they’re here, what do we do about it?
