So-called “deepfake” videos use artificial intelligence (AI) to alter images, including swapping faces and voices to create realistic videos. Deepfakes are on the rise, including those depicting U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, adding to concerns that the technology could be used to disrupt the 2020 presidential election.

USC experts examine the risks of and countermeasures for deepfakes.
