What is Deepfake how can it be dangerous
Deepfakes are created using a combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning techniques, primarily through the use of deep neural networks. Deepfakes can be used to create realistic-looking videos and audio recordings of individuals saying or doing things they never did. This makes them a potent tool for spreading false information, manipulating public opinion, and influencing elections.
They can be used to create convincing hoaxes, fake news, and propaganda. Criminals may use deepfakes to blackmail or extort victims by threatening to release fabricated or compromising content.
