Intel announced deepfake detector
The Deepfake detector Intel recently announced is said to be able to detect synthetic media with 96% accuracy.
The FakeCatcher product analyzes the “blood flow” of a person in the pixels of the video to determine if it is real or not. The tool detects color changes in the veins as the blood circulates.
The method, known as photoplethysmography (PPG), measures the amount of light reflected or absorbed by blood vessels. Intel’s technology collects these blood flow signals from the person’s face(s) in a video and uses algorithms to determine if it is a deepfake.
The technology was developed by Ilke Demir, senior staff research scientist at Intel Labs, in collaboration with Umur Ciftci of the State University of New York at Binghamton.
