WilmerHale Counsel Matthew Ferraro will be speaking on a panel discussion titled "Deepfakes: Navigating the Information Space in 2023 and Beyond" as part of the Intelligence Seminar Series at Harvard University Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. The webinar will discuss how ‘deepfakes’ have increased in prevalence across the media landscape and social platforms. Individuals, non-state actors, and organizations utilize technology in coordinated efforts to influence specific events, policies, and even market conditions. Furthermore, these dynamics have not been limited to governments or large organizations. The proliferation of technology and capabilities have empowered individuals and smaller groups with tools traditionally reserved for large actors, leading to equally disruptive outcomes.
Some questions that will be discussed include the following: What is real? What is manipulated? How do democracies safeguard against misinformation or disinformation campaigns? How do we as individuals navigate this challenging information environment?
