WASHINGTON—Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Information Technology, and Government Innovation Chairwoman Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) will hold a hearing titled “Advances in Deepfake Technology.” The subcommittee hearing will leverage expert witnesses to examine recent advances in the creation and distribution of falsified image, video, and speech, commonly known as deepfakes. The hearing will explore how this type of content can be put to harmful use and how the potential damage can be mitigated.
“This subcommittee has consistently sought to stay atop rapid developments in emerging fields such as artificial intelligence. In the case of deepfakes, we need to get a handle on both the underlying technology and how it’s used. Congress needs to stay ahead of the curve if we are going to help boost the productive impact of these technologies and limit their negative fallout,” said Subcommittee Chairwoman Mace.
