Webinar: Regulating deepfakes: an overview of policy initiatives

21.09.2022 — 12:00‐13:00

Deepfake videos are increasingly finding their way to a wider audience. The quality of the media is increasing and the technology is also becoming more accessible. The use of synthetic media is very promising, as demonstrated by the deepfake video that was used by the Dutch police this year. However, the risk of abuse and unwanted consequences is also growing. Therefore, there is a need for regulation establishing limitations for users and safeguards for society.

After an introduction by Lucas Desard (ML6), we will briefly discuss the legal and ethical challenges for a society in which synthetic media is increasingly being used. We will discuss policy initiatives already taken internationally and list a number of points of interest for policymakers. Register now!
