Targets: The fight against disinformation and deepfakes can be related to SDG № 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions (in particular 16.3 and 16.10). As this particular SDG aims to promote peaceful and inclusive societies, provide access to justice for all, and build effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions. The spread of disinformation through the application of deepfakes technology can undermine trust in institutions and contribute to social and political instability. Therefore, combatting these issues is crucial for achieving Sustainable Development Goals.


Master class

Duration (minutes)

Join us for a session dedicated to the theme of combatting disinformation and deepfakes, as we explore the rapid development of neural network technologies and media generators. The scale of the threat from malicious use of emerging technologies is becoming increasingly obscured, with even the most experienced experts being raddled. It is a moral obligation of the international community to think how our society should react to these threats. Industrial and technological leaps historically have always been followed by new regulations and legislature. So the reasonable question arises, will the development of neural network technologies and deepfakes lead to the emergence of new norms, policies and regulatory frameworks for their use? Should we draw the legal line between the online activities of users and online activities of algorithms? Can our civilization avoid becoming prey of its own inventions?
