Christopher Schwartz

Research scientist, Rochester Institute of Technology

I am currently a research scientist at the Rochester Institute of Technology's Department of Cybersecurity and School of Interactive Games and Media. In this capacity, I am a member of the DeFake Project, which is building a deepfake detector for journalists and intelligence analysts, and the Jack Voltaic cybersecurity wargame based in the Army Cyber Institute. I earned my doctorate in philosophy from KU Leuven, and for many years I was a journalist. I am currently writing three books: "Fake-Checking" about deepfakes (for Routledge, with Matthew Wright and Andrea Hickerson), "The Guardians of Rhetoric" about journalism and philosophy (for Lexington Books), and a novella, "Vanity Detector".
