Panel: Does Truth Still Need Defending?

 

Is Reality still Real? A discussion on the fragility of truth and reality in the age of deepfake videos and synthetic images. Examining the tension between democratic scientific openness and the need to defend against adversarial use of technology,  this panel delves into the societal and cultural impact in a world where we cannot trust what we see.  Panelists include Sam Gregory (Program Director of WITNESS), Hilke Schellmann (Emmy-award winning investigative reporter and Assistant Professor of Journalism at NYU), and Jeff M. Smith (Associate Director, National Center for Media Forensics at UC Denver).  The discussion is moderated by Malika Saada Saar (human rights activist and Senior Counsel on Civil and Human Rights at Google).
