Justice for Women: Deep fakes and Revenge Porn

Miosotis Soto Santana



Although manipulations of visual and auditory media are as old as media themselves, the recent entrance of deepfakes has marked a turning point in the creation of fake content. The ability to distort reality has taken an exponential leap forward with “deepfake” technology. This capability makes it possible to manipulated pictures, videos, and audio of real people saying and doing things they never said or did. Powered by the latest technological advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, deepfakes offer automated procedures to create fake content that is realistic and resistant to detection, making it hard for the human observers to detect. The possibilities to deceive are endless, making deepfakes a rising thread to society, especially females as it is being weaponized against them to harass, intimidate, degrade, and undermine, in both their personal and professional lives.
