WHY

Fight Against Deepfakes


There is increasing evidence of synthetic media being abused in media, technology, and political campaigns. AI-generated deepfakes could become even more harmful in the 2020 election, used to create highly suggestive, damaging, false versions of candidates' statements and actions. It's important to have a concerted effort to establish truth.

HOW

We are doing this in a completely inclusive, non-partisan manner by bringing together the best minds in media forensic research, AI, technology and journalism. The RD 2020 tool is a realization of this motivation.

With over 500,000 manipulated frames, FaceForensics was one of the first tools used by researchers to enable the public to participate in detection of deep fakes.
