Technology & Deep Fakes

Abuse has gone digital. With each new advancement in technology, those working with victims of gender-based violence, elder abuse, and other crimes must rapidly prepare for how it will be misused to harm the populations they assist. Artificial intelligence is no exception, driving harmful new advances in the field of digital impersonation—such as 'Deepfake' videos. These videos are used, for example, to falsely edit women into pornographic videos they were not actually in. This technology makes anyone a potential victim of nonconsensual intimate imagery and empowers laypeople with the ability to manipulate video, audio, and photographic evidence in legal proceedings. Quite simply, we have entered a time where seeing and hearing is no longer believing. This talk will address the latest forms of digital impersonation and manipulation, how victims are being targeted, and strategies to prepare for and address deepfake harm.

This event is free and open to the public.

UCI guest parking is $2/hour.

This event is approved for 2.0 hours of Minimum Continuing Legal Education Credit by the State Bar of California. UCI School of Law is a State Bar-approved MCLE provider.

Please RSVP, as space is limited.
