Experts testified on National Security Risks of Artificial Intelligence

This is a technology that alters audio or video and the product is then passed off as true or original content. Experts who testified touched on a number of concerns regarding this technology. These concerns included the upcoming elections, public trust and the mission of journalism. They also offered potential recommendations on what Congress could do to combat “deepfakes” and misinformation.
