This project tackles the rising issues of Deep Fakes which are AI-generated "fake but believable" content used in digital media today to push misleading information out to the public. To combat the problem using two broad methods: first, using a novel AI-based computer vision techniques and second, creating a trusted mobile camera application that has hardware-assisted image provenance attestation enabled. The project includes collaboration with Dr. Bartosz Wojdynski from the Grady College of Mass Communication and Journalism, Dr. Justin Conrad from the School of Public and International Affairs, Drs. Thomas Kadri and Sonja West from the School of Law, and Mark Lupo from CyberArch.
