It's good to know that 2 of my favorite organizations - DARPA and SRI (Stanford Research International) are looking out for us.



“DARPA’s MediFor program brings together world-class researchers to attempt to level the digital imagery playing field, which currently favors the manipulator, by developing technologies for the automated assessment of the integrity of an image or video and integrating these in an end-to-end media forensics platform.

If successful, the MediFor platform will automatically detect manipulations, provide detailed information about how these manipulations were performed, and reason about the overall integrity of visual media to facilitate decisions regarding the use of any questionable image or video.”


Kidding aside, Fake news is an issue that we've seen can have a large impact on society. Any front where we can at least try and keep up with the "bad guys" from a tech perspective is a worthy effort in my opinion.

DARPA funding new tech to identify "deepfakes..."

Porn and DARPA...you gotta love seeing those two in the same sentence...

Um, I can't understand why they are obsessed with that. I suppose they spend all day watching porn to figure out how to detect fake stuff. I want to apply for a job doing that.

While I agree that any technology that can be used to shield individuals from fake stuffs is good. It can also lead to a slippery slope of rights being taken away. I myself actually seek out false narratives to help gain a understanding on what is actually going on.
I believe education would be a better combative solution. If we as humans start putting fail safes in our way we learn less about the core of a problem therefore gain little insight into a solution. But that is just my take though. Either way cool find! S&F for you

From the linked article - one example would be "inserting" a celebrity into a porn video via nefarious methods...

"Deepfakes" exposes the potential damage of new technology.

How many times have we said "Pics or it didn't happen"? And it's been long assumed that, while pictures might be manipulated, videos could not be.

That's no longer the case. Someone, today, could post a video of 2018 President Trump banging Princess Diana (before she died, obviously,) in a very believable video clip.

We are on the cusp of an age where the only things you can believe are those that you witness with your own two eyes, and that's extremely limiting. These days, I don't trust anything that is posted online, whether it's "Deepfakes" or seemingly innocuous Facebook posts from people I personally know. Nine times out of ten, it's going to be completely legit, but then there's the tenth time...

No they use a common thing for normal humans to click bait into..

what they are really saying is they will be able to tell fakes as far as things like foreign news coverage...
things like that. CNN will be in trouble soon, lol.

This tech could be a useful tool for debunking suspect CGI vids, especially in the ufology and paranormal fields.

Now my tinfoil hat is on firmly for this one so strap in.

Im pretty sure that this tech has been around for awhile, but like everything tech wise what us plebs get is years if not decades behind what the Gov/TPTB have.

I think at some stage in the very near future quite a few videos of powerful people doing highly objectionable things will come out and when they do they will all be able to say "thats not me, thats a deepfake video".

Now this new tool is it being designed by the good guys so we can verify they are without question real or is it being designed by the bad guys to help cover their sicko friends butts?

Interesting times we live in

My GF loves watching CSI and true crime shows. I laugh and say it is so she can get away with "offing" me.

I have to think this is the same thing.

When the government researches something it is in order to be better at it.

They spend a bajillion dollars discovering how to spot fake video - and now they know the perfect ways to fake videos.

Make sense?

You're quite correct and I am concerned that this will be a huge problem going forward, particularly for local elections. I watched a clip of a local politician running for Congress and found myself asking if the clip was fake, i.e, in terms of could anyone really be that inarticulate? For all I know the clip was engineered to make the poor lady look the fool.

A bigger problem with all of this is that going forward, its possible that because no one can trust any of it is real, they'll just turn it all off! On a recent C2C interview of a Psychiatrist involved in Alien Abduction phenomenon, the discussion turned to the recent "reveal" published in the NYT of the video clip of the fighter pilots chasing a UFO. Someone called in and asked what the reveal situation had been in late 2017. The moderator, Jimmy Church, thanked him for his call, after explaining what had happened, and let the caller go and then pointed out in questions to the guest that a great many of people in the US have..............turned it ALL off! No TV news, (fake), no Internet news, (fake).......all of it, they've abandoned as phony! Is there a danger in that?

Hell Yea! A virulent Influenza outbreak could start on the East Coast and progress across the entire country and literally MILLIONS wouldn't even know its happening! If something isn't done......the potential for disaster is huge!

Has that ever really been done in such a way as to fool the watcher into believing it really is the famous person?

...asking for a friend.

Makes me think of the Golden State killer being caught by DNA. The day is coming when they will be able to fake DNA and suddenly enemies of the state are going to find themselves being accused of 20 to 40 year old crimes. How could you possible defend yourself against DNA evidence from May 28 1989? Or '76? Or even '04? Do you even know where you were that far back? Not to mention proving it in court.

And now they will have unassailable video proof you did it as well. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

The method isnt nefarious, it is their intent. I also dont think the majority of the industry people doctoring any adult media have nefarious intent.
I didnt see any mention of DARPA and porn in the same sentence either.

was watching CSPAN - one of the professors said he had a reporter friend do a story on Virtual Reality porn. His buddy said it was game over once this hits. Stated it is so real that nobody will want to step back into reality.... Frightening
