With deepfakes anticipated to pose a serious problem within the upcoming 2020 election and past, Facebook detailed a method through which it plans to tackle the issue. As a part of a brand new partnership that includes, amongst others, Microsoft, MIT and the University of Oxford, Facebook plans to make investments greater than $10 million to participate in an industry-wide effort to fight deepfakes. The initiative known as the Deepfake Detection Challenge (DFDC). It goals to create open supply instruments that corporations, governments and media organizations can use to higher detect when a video has been doctored. Facebook’s contribution to the challenge consists of hiring actors to create movies researchers can use to take a look at the detection instruments they create.
