Deepfakes are computer-generated visual or audio representations, created using artificial intelligence, that present images or sounds that appear real but are actually fabricated or altered.

This technology uses deep neural networks to overlay faces, voices, or, in some cases, gestures onto pre-existing videos or audio. Although they have legitimate applications, such as in the entertainment industry or video editing, deepfakes have also gained notoriety for their potential malicious use, such as defaming public figures, fabricating fake news, or deceiving individuals.

The ability to create convincing deepfakes has led to concerns about the veracity of digital media and the need for advanced detection tools.
