APU CyberSecurity Talk - Fake News & Deep Fake Technology (RSVP)


Fake news and deep fake technology are somehow inter-related and can affect our belief systems as they look so factual and real. How do we cope? Is there any scientific methods to alienate betweem the full-truth, half-truth and no truth?

This seminar will discuss and demonstrate some of the mind boggling technologies that can be made available to support fake news. A follow-up panel discussion will take place to discuss possible ways forward.
