Deep Fakes and Computer Vision: The Paradox of New Images
This paper explores the uncertain ontology of digital images derived from algorithms in high stakes contexts such as drone warfare in which image authentication is rarely possible and ethical issues intractable. Paradoxically, such images generated by machine learning algorithms -- meant to enhance image understanding and enhance our grasp of the real -- share the same uncertain ontology with computer generated digital impersonation and deep fakes.
