The Role of Libraries and Journalism in Fighting Against Deep Fakes for their Communities

With the upcoming U.S. elections, there has been increasing artificial intelligence-generated and human-generated disinformation content being circulated and causing mass confusion. We also see Photoshop errors such as the one from Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, causing doubt and distrust of venerated and public institutions from the general public. This session brings together a librarian and a journalist to talk about the implications of deep fakes, how these manipulated images/videos challenge news organizations to verify visuals, and what and how libraries could aid that challenge for our society. Attendees will learn strategies and tools available to consider using, as well as why libraries should partner with journalists in addressing this issue.
