It will soon be impossible to tell what is real and what is fake. Advanced AI technology is now able to take over the appearances and voices of people letting them do things they have never done, in places they have never been, saying things they have never said. Deep fakes, trolls, bots, fake news, and conspiracy theories are all signs for the upcoming Infocalypse.

Broadcaster and author, Nina Schick, will be speaking with What Matters Now TV about her new book 'Deep Fakes and the Infocalypse'. During this 60 minutes live conversation, we will discuss the potential impacts of mis- and disinformation and how new technologies are reshaping geopolitics, democracy, and our public health.
