Deepfake queen to deliver Channel 4 Christmas message
Deepfake technology can be used to create convincing yet entirely fictional video content, and is often used to spread misinformation. In the message, the deepfake will try its hand at a TikTok viral dance challenge. While current technology does allow for voice deepfakes, the voice of this deepfake will be dubbed by British actress Debra Stephenson. Nina Schick, author of Deep Fakes and the Infocalypse, told the BBC there was growing concern about the other malicious ways deepfake technology could be used. "Used maliciously, AI-generated synthetic media, or deepfakes, are sophisticated forms of visual disinformation."
