Any democracy is impossible without a common understanding of what is true and what is false. Everyday thousands of people are bullied, blackmailed, silenced and scammed online using fake photos, fake videos and fake credentials.
The number of fakes photos and videos being shared online is on a meteoric rise recently. It is getting easier to (i) selectively edit photos and videos, (ii) manipulate metadata and (iii) even generate fully artificial videos (Eg: deepfakes). Sometimes even genuine photos and videos are accused as fake.
More than 30% of academic and employment achievements are falsified to potential employers. Re-recruitment costs and losses in productivity are in billions of dollars worldwide.
We are living in a post-truth dystopia.
