RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Facebook has announced that manipulated videos and photos - known as 'deepfakes' - are banned from its social media as a means to prevent the spread of misinformation.
The measure is also a way to protect the results of the US presidential elections, which are to take place at the end of the year.
According to Facebook, content edited "in ways that are not apparent to an ordinary person and that could mislead someone into a mistake" will be deleted. The measure also concerns videos developed via 'machine learning' or Artificial Intelligence.
Despite the measure, Facebook says it . . .
