During the CONNECT University session on "Exploring Deepfakes phenomena", Boris Radanović – Engagement and Partnership Manager for the UK Safer Internet Centre – will explain how the "generative adversarial network" (GAN) technique became an easily available software, that is being widely used to generate deepfakes. Denis Teyssou, journalist leading Agence France-Presse (AFP) Medialab and the innovation manager of InVID and WeVerify Horizon 2020 projects will showcase how the InVID free verification plugin can help to source a deepfake video and identify the original images used to produce it. A discussion will follow on how this challenge should be addressed. Can the machine learning that produces deepfakes be easily reversed to detect them, what kind of tools can be developed, or is user awareness the key?
