About this event

CAKE 43 – Deep Fake CAKE – will explore fake content and the role that it can play in our worlds as we consume an ever-greater volume of media content across a broad range of channels and platforms.

What does fake content mean as we try to understand these worlds?

We will also look at how we interact and engage with one another, and how such content is increasingly creative and persuasive.

“Not only was the event interesting and enjoyable but, for my company, it was an opportunity to make new connections. It has created new opportunities for Living Archive Limited, at a time in the company’s development where such opportunities are crucial for survival… The CAKE event was a chance to step back for a moment and focus on the bigger picture, and this has been very valuable to me.”
