Working Together to Fight Deepfakes & Disinformation

Aspen Tech Policy Hub members Erica Greene & Ora D. Tanner will join the Transatlantic Commission on Election Integrity (TCEI) as nonresident Election Integrity fellows

December 13, 2019  – The Transatlantic Commission on Election Integrity (TCEI) and the Aspen Institute’s Tech Policy Hub, a training incubator teaching technologists how to engage in policy, are pleased to announce that two of the Hub’s members, Erica Greene & Ora D. Tanner, will join the TCEI as nonresident Election Integrity fellows. The Hub and TCEI collaborated earlier this year to have the Hub’s inaugural class of 15 fellows write memos on how to prevent deepfakes as part of their training program. This new collaboration directly draws from the ideas Greene and Tanner presented in their memos.

In their new role, Greene and Tanner will augment the TCEI’s work on disinformation and deepfakes. The two experts will develop formulas and policy recommendations on how to fight the threat of manipulated media ahead of the Copenhagen Democracy Summit in June 2020, on the occasion of the TCEI’s annual meeting.
