How to identify deepfakes

It used to be that only Hollywood production companies with deep pockets and teams of skilled artists and technicians could make deepfake videos, realistic fabrications appearing to show people doing and saying things they never actually did or said. Not anymore – software freely available online lets anyone with a computer and some time on their hands create convincing fake videos.

Whether used for personal revenge, to harass celebrities or to influence public opinion, deepfakes render untrue the age-old axiom that “seeing is believing.”

Any method that is developed to detect Deepfakes can be used to improve the Deepfake generation with a GAN.

There is no way around this.

Trust no one, question everything! Michael Crichton's Rising Sun was the among the first to anticipate the abuse of deep fake technology.
