What is a Deep Fake?
According to the company, the Intel technology looks for real clues in real video by evaluating subtle “blood flow” in video pixels.
“When our heart pumps blood, our veins change color. These blood flow signals are collected from all over the face, and an algorithm converts these signals into a spatiotemporal map. Then, using deep learning, we can instantly detect that the video is real.” or fake,” the company said in a press release earlier this month.
How to take advantage of this technology?
FakeCatcher has several potential uses. As Intel’s press release reminds, social media platforms could leverage the technology to prevent users from uploading harmful deepfake videos. Meanwhile, news organizations around the world could use detectors to avoid inadvertently amplifying manipulated videos.
