Wilson Memo: "GANs, Deepfakes, and Synthetic Media"
Following one of our most recent events, "GANs, Deepfakes, and Synthetic Media" featuring Nina Jankowicz and Melissa Griffith, this Wilson Memo provides Congressional staffers with an in-depth analysis of generative adversarial networks (GANs), deepfakes, and synthetic media. Included in the memo is background on how GAN technology is used to create synthetic media and how this type of media can be used maliciously. This memo also provides actionable ideas for policymakers to combat malicious use of deepfake technology.
