On December 16, 2021, CERTH will organise a webinar on deepfakes detection
, which will include a hands-on demonstration session. This webinar builds on the experience gained through the WeVerify project
and will present ongoing research within AI4Media
. It is supported by an award received from the U.S. -Paris Tech Challenge.
DeepFakes pose an increasing risk to democratic societies as they threaten to undermine the credibility of audiovisual material as evidence of real-world events. The technological field of DeepFakes is highly evolving with new generation methods constantly improving the quality, convincingness and ease of generation of synthetic content, and new detection methods aiming at detecting as many as possible cases of synthetic content generation and manipulation.
The webinar will be given by Dr. Symeon Papadopoulos and Dr. Nikos Sarris, both working as senior researchers in the Media Verification team of the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH). The webinar will consist of:
- a short overview of the technology behind DeepFake content generation and detection,
- our experience with developing, evaluating, and deploying a DeepFake detection service in the WeVerify project, and our ongoing plans in the AI4Media project, and finally,
- a tutorial including an introductory presentation, hands-on demonstration, where we will test the service with some real-world cases of DeepFake content and a question-answering session. The tutorial will last up to 90 mins.
We welcome all stakeholders involved in disinformation detection, analysis, and debunking activities, including but not limited to fact-checkers, journalists, OSINT investigators, NGOs investigating disinformation and human rights, government organisations, journalism students, etc.
Registration closes on December 15th at 17:00 CET/15:00 GMT.
