This chapter looks into the loose definition of deepfakes and, in response to the inherently negative context, the authors provide evidence of the positive uses and benefits of the technology used to create deepfakes. In addition, and for balance, the authors also highlight the inherent threats concerning deepfakes along with the technology’s possible employment in criminal activity. To get a better understanding of deepfakes, this chapter also looks at the websites and apps dedicated to deepfake creation and identifies the currently available state-of-the-art, open-source tools.
Furthermore, it includes information about the creation of a deepfake video by actually creating one. The main aim and contribution of this paper is to strengthen resilience against deepfakes by highlighting the different factors, the associated regulations and legislation in the EU, and the regulatory situation in North Macedonia. At its conclusion, the chapter provides recommendations on how the general public can identify a deepfake video.
