Do Deepfakes Reveal the Truth?

We will try to question the newest and ironic legitimacy trial of deepfakes: Do deepfakes, which are produced with the help of artificial intelligence (AI) in digital audio, text, and video formats and is the common name for all lies, fraud, forgery, manipulation, and disinformation in the online world, reveal the hidden truths?

Deepfake Reverse Engineering Challenge (DREC)

Facebook’s CTO, Mike Schroepfer, explains that Facebook will keep detection technology secret to avoid reverse engineering. However, Facebook does not show the same sensitivity for the most successful deepfake detection algorithms listed in DFDC. Schroepfer stressed that they will keep their algorithms confidential and admitted that they will offer reverse engineering opportunities by publishing them with open source code for algorithms developed in DFDC.

Continuing to Fight Mosquitoes in Swamp Opening…

Those who develop deepfake detection models are expected to be faster than those who developed deepfake tools to gain an edge over the algorithm war before it is too late. For this, don’t they deserve some time and positive discrimination? Isn’t it necessary to tidy up the open-source platforms that provide unconditional and unregulated ammunition and speed up those who develop deepfake tools and produce deepfakes with the help of these that are not known by whom?

Do Deepfakes Blind AI-Aided National Security?

Image is a crucial factor of the intelligence. If the flow of images from the field is interrupted, the national security operation remains blind, deaf, and dumb, and the chance of success is reduced. What happens if the intelligence images are not real but synthetically produced, altered, o r manipulated? Wouldn’t the war in the field be lost?

Do You Have Your Anti-Deepfake Protocol Ready?

This question may seem to be a cause for concern for companies and, in a wider sense, corporations (since protocols are more crucial to corporate quality standards). However, when it comes to quality of life, individuals may soon have to ask the same question. You must have a protocol—even if not on paper—on how to act properly against foreseeable risks so as to preserve your quality of life.

Can You Expose Deepfakes On Zoom?

“Life under quarantine” has accelerated the digital transformation. The video conference app Zoom has largely replaced face-to-face meetings. Now there is one more thing that the world has to deal with: zoombombing! This may only be a foreshock. In the previous article, we raised the question, “Are you really meeting with the person you think you are meeting with on Zoom?” So, what happens if they are not the person you think you are talking to? What if the real tremors are still impending on Zoom?
