Dr. Sue Kase presented a talk on "The Future of Deception: Machine Generated and Manipulated Images, Video, and Audio?" co-authored by Jonathan Bakdash, Char Sample, Monica Rankin, Murat Kantarcioglu, Jennifer Holmes, Erin Zaroukian and Boleslaw K. Szymanski at SocialSens in Orlando, FL, April 17, 2018. The abstract of the talk was published in Proc of the IEEE International Workshop on Social Sensing (SocialSens) 2018, p.2, Orlando, FL, April 17, 2018, DOI:10.1109/SocialSens.2018.00009 and is available at the link below.
The talk focuses on future methods of mitigating the threats for these new forms of deception requires developing social sensing techniques for adversarial visual and auditory content, including methods for detection of manipulation/generation as well as fusion and provenance. Combining computational social sensing with human judgments may be more effective than either alone. Humans can provide insights that are not captured computationally (e.g., the context and meaning of information) and vice-versa. Unchecked propaganda, in fake news and other forms, has the potential to undermine public confidence in institutions, including governments, and democracy itself.
