Cybersecurity Predictions: 2020 will see the first malicious use of Deepfakes with the aim of influencing the Presidential elections | Vumetric

As many have feared, in 2020 we’ll see the first malicious use of Deepfakes and other forms of synthetic media with the aim of influencing the Presidential election, though these efforts will largely fall flat (though there will be at least one attempt that does initially cause a good deal of outrage). This will be due to a combination of greater awareness by the general public of the need to be more skeptical of video evidence circulating online, combined with publishers and social platforms employing detection tools like Deeptrace to help them identify Deepfakes and blunt their impact
