Deepfake videos in Danish politics


After DF (nationalist conservative) and Liberal Alliance (liberal conservative) used artificial intelligence (AI) technology to create deepfake videos of Mette Frederiksen, a debate started in Parliament regarding the use of this technology in political communication. 

  • A deepfake can be a manipulated image, a fake video, an audio recording, or other digital representations created using AI. It is an advanced form of digital forgery, and often consists of fake audio recordings of politicians and other famous people.
  • The Presidium of the Parliament wants to create an AI codex that should regulate the use of AI technology by political parties in communication. 
  • The Minister of Culture calls the deepfake videos “an expression of theft of another person’s identity and voice” and is looking to see if such videos can be banned.
