Publisher's Summary

Uncover everything you need to know about "deepfakes" and what could become the biggest information and communications meltdown in world history.

In a world of deepfakes, it will soon be impossible to tell what is real and what isn't. As advances in artificial intelligence, video creation, and online trolling continue, deepfakes pose not only a real threat to democracy - they threaten to take voter manipulation to unprecedented new heights. This crisis of misinformation we now face has since been dubbed the "Infocalypse".

In Deepfakes, investigative journalist Nina Schick uses her expertise from working in the field to reveal shocking examples of deepfakery and explain the dangerous political consequences of the Infocalypse, both in terms of national security and what it means for public trust in politics. This all-too-timely book also unveils what this all means for us as individuals, how deepfakes will be used to intimidate and to silence, for revenge and fraud, and just how truly unprepared governments and tech companies are for what's coming. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Nothing new if you’re techie

Feels like the audience for this is the vastly uninformed who’ve been asleep for the last 7 years. Nothing new exposed for anyone remotely techie.

WARNING: this book is potentially a Trojan Horse

Most of the book is excellent. However, toward the end the author defends Communist Party of China (CPC) for not cooperating with international investigations on whether COVID-19 leaked from Wuhan lab because “these investigations were politically motivated.” She also presents Wuhan lab origin theory as a conspiracy theory. Granted, she may not be aware of congressional investigation panel recently concluding formally that there’s evidence of Wuhan leak origin, but she should have been aware of scientific community unrelated to CPC saying from the beginning that the stricture of the virus is unlikely to occur naturally. I don’t want to accuse her of deliberate misinformation but it felt like she went out of her way to defend CPC on this.

Absolute must-read

Not just for those interested in news media, social-psychology, and geo-politics; this book is a must read for anyone who uses a voice-print as a means of identity verification for their financial or government services; for anyone who wants to understand why their friend has succumbed to conspiracy theory thinking; anyone who wants to know the biggest threat in the horizon to social cohesion and how wars of the future will be fought (and are currently being fought)
