CANCELLED – DeepFake Reality: How Fake Media Affects You
November 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
This event has been cancelled due to anticipated weather conditions. Stay tuned for a potential reschedule date.
Come talk about the impact of DeepFake videos on ordinary people with one of the world’s leading experts and see a live demonstration of this exciting—and disturbing—technology.
Dr. Siwei Lyu is one of the world’s leading experts on DeepFakes. He has testified on this subject before the NY Senate and US House or Representatives. His work on media forensics has been featured in more than 50 media interviews from global media venues including CNN, BBC, and Wired Magazine. Lyu will be joined by students he mentors from Williamsville East HS and the University at Buffalo. They will demonstrate what can currently be done to create DeepFakes and discuss how to detect them, what to look for, and what things you need to be concerned about in a world where you cannot always trust what you see on video.
