Computer scientists have developed a tool that detects deepfake photos with near-perfect accuracy. The system, which analyzes light reflections in a subject's eyes, proved 94 percent effective in experiments. In real portraits, the light reflected in our eyes is generally in the same shape and color, because both eyes are looking at the same thing. Since deepfakes are composites made from many different photos, most omit this crucial detail. Deepfakes became a particular concern during the 2020 US presidential election, raising concerns they'd be use to discredit candidates and spread disinformation.
