Presentation and discussion to government agencies about deepfakes

Past Project

October 2019

Following the publication of Perception Inception - our report about the legal implications of deepfakes and synthetic media - we organised and hosted a forum of around 13 government agencies and regulators to share our findings.

While scheduled for an hour, attendees stayed for a further hour simply to continue the discussion. The meeting was hosted by InternetNZ.

Attendees included staff from: the Ministry of Defence, the Office of Film and Literature Classification, Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, the Electoral Commission, ESR, the Media Council, the Ministry for Culture and Heritage, the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Netsafe, the New Zealand Police, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner, the Broadcasting Standards Authority, the Department of Internal Affairs, the Advertising Standards Authority, the Human Rights Commission.
