from the author: "This paper examines the technical literature on deepfakes to assess the threat they pose. It draws two conclusions. First, the malicious use of crudely generated deepfakes will become easier with time as the technology commodifies. Yet the current state of deepfake detection suggests that these fakes can be kept largely at bay. Second, tailored deepfakes produced by technically sophisticated actors will represent the greater threat over time."
