Intel just introduced ‘FakeCatcher’, a real-time detector of deepfakes with a claimed accuracy rate of 96%. It is focused on clues within actual videos, measuring the amount of light that is absorbed or reflected by facial blood vessels.
Deepfake detection has become increasingly important as interactive deepfakes offer the illusion of talking to a real person and compositional deepfakes create many deepfakes to compile a ‘synthetic history’ around an individual’s personality.
We are still far away to determine whether a piece of text, audio or video is human-generated or not. Intel’s deepfake detector could present a significant step forward since its detection method offers a new AI-supported approach to uncover video-fakes.MORE
