How to identify a deepfake using forensic science?


Deepfakes are increasingly found on the internet. At LAB42 researchers are working on how a deepfake can be identified.

Prof. Zeno Geradts, Special Chair Forensic Data Science at the Informatics Institute and forensic researcher at the National Forensic Institute (NFI) tells in the video below about the different ways researchers find out whether something is deepfaked or not. A few examples include:

  • The small variation in frequency stemming from the power grid;
  • The ‘fingerprint’ of a camera sensor;
  • Explainable AI to explain why something is deepfake or real;
  • The blood flow in the human face.
