In April, the ITES Innovation summit invited us to give a speech in Deauville, Normandy, on new technology and disinformation.
Around 350 professionals attended this yearly gathering of the French computer industry. During 20 minutes in the plenary session, we got the opportunity to present the WeVerify concepts and roadmap.
We showcased how to retrieve the original images of a deep fake video using the famous Obama footage made by Oscar-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele.
Then followed examples of disinformation that confuse reverse image search engine indexes, because of artificial intelligence bias. Some search engines like Google try to extract knowledge from still images and videos beyond similarity search. In several examples, disinformation is confusing their index and the image of the fake remains linked to the wrong content.
