Nina’s book Deep Fakes and the Infocalypse: What You Urgently Need To Know warns of impending information overload—branded the “Infocalypse”—and explains the dangerous political consequences of this, both in terms of national security and what it means for public trust in politics. Nina will reveal how Deep Fakes will be used “to intimidate and to silence, for revenge and fraud”, and how unprepared governments and tech companies are. In the book she will draw on her experience as a political advisor to tech companies and to global leaders including Joe Biden to tell readers what they need to do to prepare and protect themselves.
