1. Deep Faked
In this 45-page eBook, Flat Earth Report Editor in Chief Tim Ozman argues that we are witnessing one of the greatest misdirection campaigns of our lives, that, despite the hype surrounding DEEPFAKE technology as something new, it has, actually, been in the world long before computer graphics existed. DEEP FAKING – faking reality in order to replace, subvert, augment, or otherwise influence the perceptions of others.
We are witnessing one of the greatest misdirection campaigns of our lives. Have you seen the news stories about so-called “deep fakes” and how computer-generated characters can subvert our reality?
What happens when anyone can make a video of you saying anything? In DEEPFAKE by Sarah Darer Littman, this is exactly what happens, when one student makes a video accusing another student of cheating. Or did she? Grab your copy to find out! Dara Simons and Will Halpern have everything they’ve ever wanted. They are the rulers of Greenpoint High’s geekdom, overachieving in every way, and it’s an intense competition to see who will be valedictorian. One the entire school is invested in. That is, until Rumor Has It, the anonymous gossip site, posts a video of Dara accusing Will of paying someone to take the SAT for him.
A quick, fun and informative read to help you better understand the world of FAKE NEWS and the role DEEPFAKE technology plays. Sooo, Sooo, Sorry, this is not a lengthy novel filled with sex, murder, and intrigue but it is a work of absolute and complete fiction. With each “FakeNews” Report you must depart from the usual, the honest, or concise news coverage as is within most mainstream publications. To the contrary, practically every suggested or implied fact, beyond this point, is actually “Fake News” or if you prefer, “Alternative Facts”. In-any-event, each topic has been compiled solely for the purpose of your entertainment though an attempt has been made to lace it with a dash of humor and a pinch or two of actual facts . . . Several “issues” or “topics” that may have been reported in the media of recent date has been reported upon yet again, and in turn, each has been distorted and embellished with outright lies concerning the subject or topic at hand.
What if a digital profile you created had a mind of its own? In FASCIMILE, that’s exactly the case — an intelligent sci-fi novel with DEEPFAKE technology at the center.

In How to Lose the Information War, go on a journey through 5 western governments’ responses to Russian information warfare tactics.
Since the start of the 2016, the United States and the Western world has finally begun to wake up to the threat of online warfare and the attacks from Russia. The question no one seems to be able to answer is: what can the West do about it?
Central and Eastern European states, however, have been aware of the threat for years. Nina Jankowicz has advised these governments on the front lines of the information war. The lessons she learnt from that fight, and from her attempts to get US congress to act, make for essential reading.
In The Reality Game, learn how Deepfake technology can threaten much more than social media. Author and founder of Digital Intelligence Lab Samuel Woolley dives deep into technologies like arguable deep fakes, virtual reality and more. Online disinformation stormed our political process in 2016 and has only worsened since. Yet as Samuel Woolley shows in this urgent book, it may pale in comparison to what’s to come: humanlike automated voice systems, machine learning, “deepfake” AI-edited videos and images interactive memes, virtual reality, and more. These technologies have the power not just to manipulate our politics, but to make us doubt our eyes and ears and even feelings.
The Internet has been flooded with disinformation, and author Nina Schick believes governments and tech companies are not prepared for how Deepfakes are ushering in the Infocalypse. In a world of deepfakes, it will soon be impossible to tell what is real and what isn’t. As advances in artificial intelligence, video creation, and online trolling continue, deepfakes pose not only a real threat to democracy — they threaten to take voter manipulation to unprecedented new heights. This crisis of misinformation which we now face has since been dubbed the “Infocalypse.”
