Scientists Are Taking the Fight Against Deepfakes to Another Level



The main cause of death from COVID-19 is acute respiratory distress syndrome, where the lungs are unable to provide enough oxygen for the body. The treatment is to place these patients on a mechanical ventilator, a device that forces oxygen or medical air into the lungs. But with infections spreading like wildfire, the number of people requiring mechanical ventilation is skyrocketing. A recurring theme in the health care systems of one country after another is the shortage of ventilators. This leads to heartbreaking stories of doctors forced to decide who receives treatment and who doesn’t. So governments the world over are desperately looking at ways to manufacture ventilators quickly, cheaply and reliably. Earlier this week, for example, the British government began asking high-tech engineering companies to switch their resources to making ventilators instead. It even set out detailed, minimally acceptable requirements that it wants for these devices.But what to make? It is no…
