Nowadays, it is challenging to distinguish between genuine content created by humans or deepfake created by deepfakes algorithms. Therefore, it is in the interests of society and nations to have systems that can notice and evaluate the content without human intervention. This paper presents the challenges of artificial intelligence, specifically machine learning and deep learning, in the fight against deepfake. In addition, it presents the relevance that deepfakes may have in the administration of criminal justice.
