Demystifying Deepfakes: A Conversation with Sam Gregory

In this episode of the Power 3.0 podcast, featured guest Sam Gregory discusses how synthetic media produced by artificial intelligence, often referred to as “deepfakes,” may soon be used by malicious actors to undermine democracy—and how civil society can prepare for this challenge. Sam Gregory is program director of WITNESS, where he has led a series of strategic shifts responding to complex and changing realities around technology, social media, and human rights. Christopher Walker, NED vice president for studies and analysis, and Shanthi Kalathil, senior director of NED’s International Forum for Democratic Studies, cohost the conversation.
