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.
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?

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.
