Abstract: The emergence of generative AI and synthetic content, such as deepfakes, presents complex challenges and opportunities for society and science. This presentation will present recent work on human-based deepfake processing – both among members of the general population as well as groups tasked with digital content verification: Berlin Police officers and Super-Recognizers (SRs). SRs possess an innate, exceptional ability to process facial identity, and are increasingly leveraged by law enforcement agencies across security applications. Our findings describe the limits of human ability to detect deepfakes, which are – at the behavioral level – genially processed similarly to real faces. I will discuss implications of these limitations and the potential benefits synthetic identities can play towards increasing fairness, privacy and transparency. I will outline a participartory action research project that merges science, practice and art to support fundamental and applied knowledge gain, as well as awareness regarding the risks and benefits of generative AI. To harness its potential responsibly and support the research and policy development that is needed, I encourage interested stakeholders to contribute to this transdisciplinary endeavor.
