 Context: The prevalence and impact of shallow fakes during elections have been a concern.

  • Shallow Fakes are manipulated images, videos, and voice clips created without AI technology.
  • Unlike deepfakes, shallow fakes rely on traditional editing tools to deceive viewers.
  • They are increasingly used in political contexts, particularly during elections, to spread misinformation.
  • The blurring line between shallow fakes and deepfakes, coupled with the accessibility of editing tools, has amplified their prevalence.
