"Deep Fakes" can incriminate people online
CNN has a video explaining the growing problem of “deep fakes” online, which can manipulate videos and make it appear a different person is making an offensive statement or committing some sort of act. (There is a scene in my novel where a defendant in a shoplifting case tries to claim this was done.)
NBC News has a similar recent video on the problem. It cannot be managed by the usual rules involving "revenge porn".
A company called Truepic is developing counter strategies.
This story is likely to become more important with time.
