In this series of liveProjects, you’ll step into the role of a forensics consultant. You’re investigating a ring of cyber criminals who are blackmailing prominent social media personalities with scandalous “deepfake” videos. These videos use a deep learning model to splice a victim’s face onto an actor, creating highly realistic content that can be indistinguishable from the real thing. Your boss wants you to develop a method to efficiently detect these deepfakes from a huge data set of online videos. The method needs to be fast, and also run without needing GPU resources, which are in short supply. Each project in this series covers a different aspect of developing this deepfake detecting solution, with essential computer vision and machine learning skills you can easily transfer to other tasks.
