Monika Bickert, head of Facebook’s security safety and counter-terrorism, says videos that distort reality, commonly called “deep fakes,” may still be uncommon on the internet, but they pose a major challenge to the industry.
“Our methodology has several elements, ranging from studying AI-generated content and misleading activities such as fake accounts to collaborations with academics, government and industry to exposing people behind these efforts,” she said.
Bickert has called the partnership between Facebook and global experts a key step in developing the science of distorted media identification.
