Deep Fakes and the Infocalypse

Nina Schick is a world-leading authority on generative AI. Deep Fakes and the Infocalypse is the first book on AI-generated content in 2020. This read explores the tipping point in human evolution. Deep Fakes are coming, are we ready? No.

“Advanced AI technology is now able to create video of people doing things they never did, in places they have never been, saying things they never said.

In the hands of rogue states, terrorists, criminals or crazed individuals, they represent a disturbing new threat to democracy and personal liberty.

Deep Fakes can be misused to shift public opinion, swing Presidential elections, or blackmail, coerce, and silence individuals. And when combined with the destabilising overload of disinformation that has been dubbed ‘the Infocalypse’, we are potentially facing a danger of world-changing proportions.”

“Schick's Deep Fakes and the Infocalypse is a short, sharp book that hits you like a punch in the stomach.”
- Nick Cohen, The Observer
“Nina Schick is alerting us to a danger from the future that is already here.”
- Adam Boulton, Editor at Large, Sky News
“Deep Fakes and the Infocalypse is an urgent, thoughtful and thoroughly-researched book that raises uncomfortable questions about the way that information is being distorted by states and individuals... A must-read.”
- Greg Williams, Editor in Chief of WIRED UK
“Essential reading for any one interested about the shocking way information is and will be manipulated.”
- Lord Edward Vaizey

Louis Theroux

Gotta Get Theroux This

Louis Theroux is a documentary presenter best known for producing immersive documentaries that explore the often controversial and complex aspects of the human condition.

“In Gotta Get Theroux This, Louis takes the reader on a joyous journey from his anxiety-prone childhood to his unexpectedly successful career. Nervously accepting the BBC’s offer of his own series, he went on to create an award-winning documentary style that has seen him immersed in the weird worlds of paranoid US militias and secretive pro-wrestlers, get under the skin of celebrities like Max Clifford and Chris Eubank and tackle gang culture in San Quentin prison, all the time wondering whether the same qualities that make him good at documentaries might also make him bad at life.”

“Funny, engaging”
- Sunday Times
- Daily Mail
“Absorbing and surprisingly candid”
- Telegraph Magazine
