CORDIS Article Featuring TITAN: Unravelling the Deepfake Dilemma with New White Paper


Do you ever feel that truth and authenticity are increasingly elusive, and that the rise of generative AI poses both a marvel and a menace? You are not alone. On one hand, AI models like DALL-E and ChatGPT dazzle us with their ability to create stunningly realistic images, text, and audio. On the other hand, their misuse in spreading disinformation threatens the very fabric of our information ecosystem.

A groundbreaking white paper, emerging from the collaborative efforts of the EU-funded vera.ai, AI4Media, and AI4TRUST projects, along with ourselves - TITAN - casts a probing light into this complex landscape. Authored by experts deeply entrenched in the realm where technology intersects with societal impact, the paper serves as a guide through the labyrinth of challenges and opportunities presented by AI-driven disinformation.


Recognised and amplified by the European Commission's Community Research and Development Information Service (CORDIS) the paper features in a dedicated article which summarises the need for research in a dynamic world, where AI and disinformation intertwine. Our TITAN Coordinator, Francesco Saverio Nucci, underscore's it's pivotal role. "Unravelling the Deepfake Dilemma isn't just about dissecting technology; it's a clarion call for societal resilience. This white paper stands as a testament to our collective dedication to safeguarding truth in the age of AI-driven disinformation".


The paper explores the disconcerting capabilities of state-of-the-art AI in fabricating falsehoods, raising crucial ethical and regulatory questions in its wake. Central to the discourse is the sobering realisation that the threat of AI-generated disinformation is not speculative; it is a present reality with tangible consequences. Elections, democratic processes, and public trust are all in the crosshairs of these malicious campaigns, sowing seeds of doubt and discord. Yet, amidst these challenges lie opportunities for innovation and resilience. This project contributions elucidates the strides made in detecting and debunking disinformation, spotlighting AI-powered tools that empower media professionals and citizens alike. It advocates for a proactive approach, fostering critical thinking and equipping individuals with the skills to navigate the treacherous waters of online information.
