Scientists from Rostov-on-Don taught a program to detect fake videos

MOSCOW, October 18 A new program for identifying fake video content was developed at the Don State Technical University (DSTU, Rostov-on-Don), it is expected to help journalists identify video fakes, and ordinary users can quickly check, for example, a suspicious video asking for urgent financial assistance allegedly from a distant relative, the university reported.
“Now there are many neural networks that allow you to make an unusual picture, write a poem or a melody in a couple of clicks. Using the same principle, using artificial intelligence, you can easily create a fake video. At the same time, intelligent systems are becoming smarter every day – the product of their work is becoming more and more difficult distinguished from real content even with the help of special programs,” explained the author of the program, graduate student of the Department of Cybersecurity of Information Systems at DSTU Alexander Dzhurov.

The program detects fake videos created using the DeepFake technology of the GAN (Generative Adversarial Network) algorithm. The new tool is capable of identifying signs of human face synthesis using neural networks in video frames with acceptable accuracy. As the developers note, to use this anti-fake program, you just need to download the controversial video and run the scan via the command line. The program will detect all frames with faces in the video sequence and analyze each of them for numerous visual signs of a fake, for example, the tension of the lips during a conversation, the comparison of speech and facial expressions, as well as various technical nuances, down to unnaturally located pixels.

According to the developers, the program will be in demand in organizations in the field of digital security, including when creating contactless access control systems and unlocking gadgets. It is expected that the development of the DSTU will help media workers identify video fakes, and ordinary users will quickly check, for example, a suspicious video asking for urgent financial assistance from a distant relative – and thereby protect themselves from scammers.
In the future, they plan to make the program to detect fake videos part of a larger project at DSTU aimed at ensuring network security and protecting the physical, psychological and moral health of Russian citizens.
“The program for identifying fake video content will become one of the modules of the future software package to counter destructive information. This system will cover all types of multimedia content on the Internet: texts – both printed and handwritten, graphic images, including photo and video files , as well as audio files. All this Internet content can be analyzed using neural network technologies of artificial intelligence and assessed for danger to the user,” noted the scientific director of the project, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor of the Department of Cyber ​​Security of Information Systems at DSTU Larisa Cherkesova .
