Berlin: Franziska Giffey deceived by artificial intelligence

But right now: After Berlin’s mayor Giffey fell for a fake call, the real Vitali Klitschko from Kyiv answered.

After a fake phone call by an alleged Vitali Klitschko to Berlin’s governing mayor Franziska Giffey, the real Kiev mayor is hoping for a talk with the SPD politician soon. It may have been a technical manipulation, the Berlin Senate Chancellery explains on Twitter. State security is investigating.

During a video call on Friday, Giffey had doubts as to whether she was actually connected to Kiev’s mayor as planned. The conversation then ended prematurely. The Senate Chancellery assumes digital manipulation: “Apparently we are dealing with deep fakes,” said Senate spokeswoman Lisa Frerichs.

Conversation was terminated prematurely

According to the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) understood the media manipulation of videos, images or audio files. By using artificial intelligence (AI), realistic deceptions can be produced with relatively little effort.
