US lawmakers are asking the Director of National Intelligence to investigate how deepfakes could be used to compromise national security. The representatives – two Democrats and one Republican – say deepfakes blur the line between fact and fiction and “could undermine public trust in recorded images and videos as objective depictions of reality”.

Deepfakes are produced using artificial intelligence-based synthesis combining images and videos to create hyper-realistic forgeries.

The three lawmakers are asking for an assessment of how foreign third parties could use such technology to harm national security interests, as well as identify countermeasures that have been or could be deployed.
