What Parents Need to Know About Deepfakes

Published 4th August 2021

A free online safety guide on Deepfakes.

A deepfake is an extremely convincing piece of media that is created using artificial intelligence (AI), based on pictures and recordings of the subject. The name comes from the deep learning approach to AI needed to generate them and the fact that they’re used to create fake content. Deepfakes can be made as videos, static images and audio – where a person’s voice is accurately mimicked to make it seem as though they have said something which, in reality, they have not.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as fake news, pornography and fraudulent use.
