Wed, 03/27/2019 - 4:09pm -- mcfics

Out of 500+ applications to The Ethics and Governance in AI Initiative, a joint project from the MIT Media Lab and Harvard's Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, professor Wright’s project “AI Ethics Initiative for Robust Deepfake detection” is one of the seven final winners. He and his team will experiment with techniques to assist researchers and the public in identifying evidence that a given piece of video or audio is a fake generated via machine learning. These techniques will then be field tested with journalists and media forensics experts who are on the frontlines of identifying and evaluating media “in the wild.”
