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.
