Welcome to the world of the so-called ‘synthetic media’.

Deep-fakes, face-swapping and vishing are some examples of the exciting techniques with which images, video and sound can be manipulated. This can result in a video where a persons face is replaced with that of another person or manufactured audio using someone else’s voice. This opens up a whole range of positive and negative possibilities and leaves us with the authenticity problem. Can we still trust what we see and hear?

The fascination for this subject led us to the creation of this site and we hope it will help you with dealing with the uncertainties in todays media landscape. If you have any questions or comments please let us know.
