Publication de l’article « Deepfakes: How to empower youth to fight the threat of misinformation and disinformation » dans the Conversation

29 janvier 2024

The World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report 2024 has issued a stark warning: misinformation and disinformation, primarily driven by deepfakes, are ranked as the most severe global short-term risks the world faces in the next two years.

In October 2023, the Innovation council of Québec shared the same realization after months of consultations with experts and the public.

This digital deception, which leverages artificial intelligence and, more recently generative AI, to create hyper-realistic fabrications, extends beyond being a technological marvel; it poses a profound societal threat.

In response to the gap in effectively combating deepfakes with technology and legislation alone, a research project led by my team and I sheds light on a vital solution: human intervention through education.
