Panel Discussion: DECEIVER
24 April 2024 • 5:45 PM - 6:15 PM EDT | National Harbor 6 

Human society is facing an unprecedented era of information bombardment. Every day we are swamped by such a huge number of texts, videos, audio, emails, and posts that are far beyond what one can digest. The Internet and the social media are key game-changers in exploiting rights and freedoms. They give the opportunity for spreading limitless fake photos, reports, and opinions. Recent deepfake video attacks on some public scenarios have raised more concerns. Misinformation may actually cause disturbance in our society and ruin the foundation of trust. Government agencies like the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and National Security Agency (NSA) are concerned about losing the war against misinformation that uses popular ML techniques to automatically incorporate artificial components into existing video streams. Join this panel discussion on DECEIVER: Disseminating, Education on Counteracting, Erroneous, Information, Verifying, Evidence, and Reporting, to learn about detecting and deterring misinformation and deception, and hear researchers and experts discuss the latest developments and technical solutions concerning various aspects of rebuilding a trust foundation in the era of rumor, misinformation, and disinformation.

Moderator and panelists to be determined.


This panel is part of the Disruptive Technologies in Information Sciences conference.
