Facebook's new Artificial Intelligence technology not only identifies Deepfakes, it can also gives hints about their origin


Facebook's new Artificial Intelligence technology not only identifies Deepfakes, it can also gives hints about their origin Artificial intelligence (AI) created videos and pictures have become much popular and that can create some serious problems as well, because you can create fake videos, and manipulated images of any type to put anyone in trouble. Deepfakes use deep learning models to create fictitious photos, videos, and events. These days, deepfakes look so realistic that it becomes very difficult to identify the real picture from the fake one with a normal human eye, therefore, Facebook's AI team has created a model in collaboration with a group of Michigan State University that has the ability to identify not only the fabricated picture or videos, but it can even trace the origin. The latest technology of Facebook checks the resemblances from a compilation of deepfakes datasets to find out if they have a common basis, looking for a distinctive model such as small specks of noise or minor quirks in the color range of a photo. By spotting the small finger impressions in the photo, the new AI model is capable to distinguish particulars of how the impartial network that produced the photo was invented, such as how large the prototype is and how it was prepared.

5 Rules to Manage AI's Unintended Consequences


Social media firms claim they're just trying to build communities and connect the world and that they need ad revenues to remain free. But nothing is really free. For them, more views mean more money and so they've optimized their algorithms to maximize engagement. Views are the algorithms' "reward function" -- the more views the algorithms can attract to the platform the better. When an algorithm promotes a given post and sees an upsurge of views, it will double down on the strategy, selectively timing, targeting and pushing posts in ways that it has found will stimulate further sharing, a process called reinforcement learning.
