Facebook bans deepfakes, but new policy may not cover controversial Pelosi video
Facebook has banned users from posting computer-generated, highly manipulated videos, known as deepfakes, seeking to stop the spread of a novel form of misinformation months before the 2020 presidential election.
Deep fakes are videos, but not as you know them. The people in them might look and sound real, but the images and audio have been produced using ever-improving AI technologies. Soon individuals and state players alike will have the power to make celebrities and politicians do or say whatever they want via digital doubles.
