Giorgio is founder and CEO at DeepTrace. Their mission is to help society regain trust in visual media, specifically fighting against the threat posed by deepfakes.

Deepfake technology uses AI to completely swap the face and voice of a person with someone else’s to create synthetic (fake) videos that look just like the real thing.

There are thousands of synthetic videos on the internet and most of the victims are women who suffer harassment, embarrassment or even blackmail. In the face of this growing threat, Giorgio is fighting back for all of us.
