If the Deep Fake technology first appeared in the early 2018, it was well-known faces on the bodies of porn performers, and produce a reasonably convincing videos.
But some fear that Deep Fakes will soon be a much darker agenda.
“It’s going to be a big wave of Deep Fakes coming at us,” said Fabrice Pothier, a spokesman for the Transatlantic Commission on electoral integrity, which was established to combat the growing number of violations in regional and national elections.
Supported by the former US Vice-President Joe Biden, and a number of former politicians and high-ranking personalities from Nato and other facilities that produce the plans of the Commission, the tools to help options progress without interference.
A tool is made the opponent Deep – Fakes-especially those words in the mouths of politicians or other public figures to engage with the elections.
Time is running out to develop such tools. John Gibson said, from the ASI data science, the Commission advises on ways to recognize, Deep Fake videos.
“It is likely, almost certain, that within, say, a couple of years, basically anyone with a bit of tech smarts can be a very convincing video, or audio from more or less anyone in the public domain, say, or to do more or less what you want on a video and then spread,” he said.

ASI was called, because of their success in the creation of tools to automatically spot the video made by the Islamic state group on social media.
This well-produced “official” videos were the key to the radicalisation of many people, the “lone wolf” attacks in London and other cities, said Mr Gibson.
“There are certain classes of video, cause the real damage,” he said. “They are smooth and well produced.
“The quality of the content is important, because you can start to convince people that are skeptical. These are so disturbing because they are so visceral surgery.”
As the Depths of Fake improved the technology, it could be used to create compelling clips, the considerably discussion and undermine the legitimate elections can affect.
Large web platforms like Facebook and YouTube have a lot of to find their own work, and to rinse the propaganda, Mr Gibson, but smaller companies need help to check the huge amount of video online flow said. The same is true for the depth of Fakes.
Systems based on machine learning and AI can do to find the job – content and processing video far faster than humans can, he said.
Research suggests that the IS-released videos, the online on more than 400 different platforms, said Mr Gibson. The depth of the Fakes are likely to be uploaded by at least as many routes.
“If you fake messages to spread, it doesn’t matter where it is, it is so, gets you more status, if on YouTube,” he said. “You just want to look at only people.
“As long as it is on the website open and as long as you can cut and paste a link to it is done in a message, the job basically,” he told the BBC.The fight against counterfeiting
There were already efforts to combat election disturbances, the most especially during Mexico’s last presidential election.
“Mexico has a long history in the social network of the manipulation,” said Tom Trewinnard, Director of programmes at the media company Meedan, have helped lead a project to fight fake news and disinformation in the Land called Verificado.
The electronic disturbance intensified in the course of the years 2018 election. One of the most public examples took place during the last TV debate between the presidential candidates on 12 June.
During the debate, Ricardo Anaya, from the National action party, revealed that his website was that the public documents, criticized the leading candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
During the debate, the site as a hit by a sustained cyber-attack was under way, and was knocked offline for hours.
Other disorders include hashtag poisoning on Twitter.
The said Mr Trewinnard, includes support for a campaign flooding Twitter posts related to a trending-Tags that rival.
“That solves the Twitter spam Filter, which kills the hashtag from the trending feed,” said Mr Trewinnard.
Some of the attacks were much less demanding. It claimed to show that a candidate was not born in Mexico, but not to change the basic data on the birth certificate image that was copied, resulting in the goal more than 100 years old.
Verificado brought together 90 different organizations, to find the large media groups, universities and civil society organisations to investigate and expose election-related material, said Mr Trewinnard.
The media groups studied, disinformation and published rejoinders, if it was found to be fake. He has published hundreds of separate articles that have been shared millions of time-and often helped dilute the impact of the fakes.
It was clear, he said that there was an appetite in Mexico for verified news sources.
It is less clear whether Verificado worked, said Mr Trewinnard, but as the project was coming to an end, since the problem of fake news in Mexico there was more loud calls from across the political spectrum with the election of Mr. Obrador.
But what is now obvious why so many groups are interested in, indulge yourself in this large-scale disinformation campaigns, said Toby, Abel, AI fixed Krzana that helped Verificado scour sources for news.
There was a lot of information to review, said Mr Abel, and the some is although it is “ridiculous nonsense,” there were still good reasons for putting them online and try to spread it.
The reason, he said, was poison to the debate in General, and undermine the faith of the people, anything and everything that you saw.
“The insidious danger of mass amounts of fake message is that we don’t know what they believe,” he said. “I do not believe that we yet to a point where we know how to deal with it.”
