Artificially generated ‘deepfake’ video, image, audio and text pose a major challenge for governments, politicians, companies, CEOs, celebrities, academics and commentators.

A growing number of technology companies, academic researchers and NGOs are developing ways to identify false and misleading AI-generated media. Progress is being made, but there is a long way to go until a viable, comprehensive solution, or set of solutions, are available.

Here is a list of tools, datasets and toolkits on the market and in the pipeline:
