Deep Fake or Rendering the Truth

Panel at European Media Art Festival 2018, 20. April in Osnabrück

Moderation by Tobias Revell

Participants: Luba Elliot, Anna Ridler, Francis Hunger, Igor Schwarzmann

The ability of computers to fake reality convincingly is going to become more and more of a critical problem as hackers, extremist news organisations and politicians seek to control the media narrative through increasingly convincing visuals. The presentation includes the video ‘Synthesizing Obama’, which demonstrated the ability to synthesize a life-like rendering of Obama in real time.

Organized in collaboration with the Impakt Festival, the Netherlands /
