Deepfake material including fabricated evidence will become so realistic it will land innocent people in jail, an expert has warned.
Shamir Allibhai, CEO of video verification company Amber, believes content including CCTV and voice recordings will be subject to gross manipulation.
He spoke amid alarming concerns over deepfake technology raising eyebrows online, including a recent viral video of comedian Bill Hader morphing into actor Tom Cruise.
And Shamir warns it is only a matter of time before the technology creeps its way into the global judicial system.
He told Daily Star Online: "Initially, deepfakes will be manipulations of existing audio/video evidence, such as that from CCTV, voice recorders, police body cams, and bystanders' cell phones.
