Malicious Influence, Deepfakes & Political Security in 2019

AI and machine learning represent a big step forward in how computers learn. It is now possible to quickly and automatically analyze more complex data and deliver faster, more accurate results. These technologies offer organizations a better chance of identifying opportunities, or avoiding unknown risks. On the flip side, they also make it easier and cheaper for criminals with technical savvy to undermine political security.

Right now, many of us rely almost entirely on the internet to get our daily news. What happens when none of that information can be trusted? It is much easier today to contribute to the spread of misinformation than it was in the past. With AI and machine learning, malicious hackers can act as a destabilizing force within government and civilian life.
