Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Facebook to ban ‘deepfakes’

Deepfakes are technologies or media that that replace an existing image or video with someone else’s likeness by using artificial intelligence. The technology creates fake images or videos of popular or influential people, such as politicians, stars, or artists, in pornographic videos, fake news, hoaxes, and financial fraud. Such fake videos look so realistic that they could mislead the public perception of certain people that could affect the person’s reputation, relevant businesses, or even an election result. Platformers of video clips, such as Google and Facebook, have been trying to detect and eliminate harmful and misleading deepfake videos, and Facebook has recently announced that it will remove videos modified by artificial intelligence from its platform. This is not an easy task, though. They need not only to check the reality and authenticity of the video or image but also to fact-check what the person actually did or say. They seem to need AI detector or fact-checker to combat AI-created deepfakes.

Enjoy reading the article and learn what deepfakes are about.
