GovernmentCIO Research: DARPA Tackles Deepfakes With AI

The proliferation of visual digital media that can be produced and shared instantly has improved connectivity, but it comes with one major drawback. Visual media manipulation technologies have also evolved, giving amateurs and experts alike the tools to realistically manipulate media for potentially antagonistic ends like propaganda and misinformation.

The Media Forensics (MediFor) program out of DARPA’s Information Innovation Office (I2O) is trying to develop automated AI technologies to assess visual media manipulation at scale in an end-to-end platform, I2O Program Manager and MediFor program lead Dr. Matt Turek outlined at Thursday's DARPA AI Colloquium in Alexandria, Virginia.
