Deepfakes and the danger of totalitarianism / Tehnologija globokih prevar (deepfakes) in nevarnost totalitarizma

Deepfakes are not only a problem for individuals, but also undermine trust and threaten democracy. This talk analyzes the problem, what can be done about it, and who should do something about it. We need an education that does not only enable a critical relation to written text but also to images. However, the problem of who should do something about it is connected to the issues with the enormous power big tech companies have accumulated and what their role should be with regard to misinformation.

Tehnologija globokih prevar (deepfakes) ne prinaša težav le posameznikom: spodkopava zaupanje in ogroža demokracijo. To predavanje bo ponudilo analizo problema, namige, kaj lahko naredimo, in kdo bi moral nekaj narediti. Potrebujemo izobraževanje, ki ne bo omogočilo le kritičnega odnosa do (pisanega) teksta, pač pa tudi slik. Vendar je to, kdo bi se moral posvetiti reševanju tega problema, povezano z velikansko močjo, ki so si jo nakopičila velika tehnološka podjetja ter s tem, kakšna mora biti njihova vloga v zvezi z dezinformacijami.
