Almost 59% of the world's population is on the internet, and in 2020, globally, there were more than 3.81 billion individual social network users. Eighty-six percent of the internet users were fooled to spread fake news. The advanced artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms can generate fake digital content that appears to be realistic. The generated content can deceive the users into believing it is real. These fabricated contents are termed deepfakes. The common category of deepfakes is video deepfakes. The deep learning techniques, such as auto-encoders and generative adversarial network (GAN), generate near realistic digital content. The content generated poses a serious threat to the multiple dimensions of human life and civil society. This chapter provides a comprehensive discussion on deepfake generation, detection techniques, deepfake generation tools, datasets, applications, and research trends.
