Combating False Information

Speaker:  Dongwon Lee – State College, PA, United States
Topic(s):  Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Natural language processing


The recent world-wide rise of “false information” (that includes rumor, clickbait, fake news, hoax, misinformation, and disinformation) has caused significant confusion and disruption among societies. The recently-emerged phenomenon of deepfakes (i.e., AI-synthesized realistic artifacts) could exacerbate the problem even further. In this talk, I will present state-of-the-art solutions from my group as well as other leading groups that attempt to combat this false information and deepfakes. I will further discuss the important implications and impacts of false information and deepfakes in diverse applications, and conclude with final thoughts, emphasizing the needs of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to this very challenging and important problem.
