While open-source investigations have used data and technology to pry open the shroud that conceals war crimes and abuses, disinformation campaigns are used by perpetrators and their witting and unwitting allies in an effort to obfuscate and conceal. In this session we will investigate the methods used by perpetrators in disinformation campaigns. This will include a review of deepfakes, the synthetic visual and audio content created using artificial neural networks.
