Advancing Machine Perception: Countering Malicious Fake Visual Data

Project Member(s): Yu, X.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC DECRA Scheme)
Australian Research Council (ARC DECRA Scheme)

Start year: 2023

Summary: This project aims to investigate techniques for automatically detecting maliciously manipulated visual data that would mislead the general public and impair the reputation of individuals, preventing disinformation and hoaxes generated by misused artificial intelligence (AI) techniques. This project expects to generate new knowledge in the area of computer vision and deep learning, utilising innovative techniques of image analysis and modelling, and transfer learning. Expected outcomes of this project include new scientific discoveries on effective and extendable deepfake detection methods. This should provide significant benefits to a wide range of applications, such as providing timely alerts to the media and government organisations.
