Professor Theo Gevers c.s. conducted the very first research on perpetrator confrontation using deepfake technology with victims with sexual violence-related PTSD and moral injury. The results are published in a scholarly article in the special issue of Frontiers in Psychiatry.
The platform deeptherapy.ai is developed by 3DUniversum (spin-off UvA). DeepTherapy is an online communication platform for practitioners to enter into conversation with inaccessible people through self-controlled video animations via Zoom.
A live intervention was broadcast on TV, and Theo Gevers talks about it in different newspapers.
