Deepfake is a technology for creating fake photos, videos, or audio recordings using artificial intelligence and machine learning. It allows replacing faces and voices of real people with digital copies, creating very realistic but fake media files.

For example, deepfake can be used to create a video where a famous person says or does something that never happened in reality. Or to replace a face in an existing video with the face of another person.

Deepfakes are created by training neural networks on a large number of photos and videos of a real person. Then this trained model can generate new images, imitating the appearance and facial expressions of that person.

Deepfake technology can be used both for entertainment and creativity, and for malicious purposes – to create fake news, compromising materials, fraud, or invasion of privacy. Therefore, it is important to develop methods for detecting deepfakes and educate people about this phenomenon.
