Pushing Deepfakes to The Limit — Fake Video Calls With AI
Today’s real-time Deepfake technology makes it possible to create indistinguishable doppelgängers of a person and let them participate in video calls. Since 2019, the TNG Innovation Hacking Team has intensively researched and continuously developed the AI around real-time Deepfakes. The final result and the individual steps towards photorealism will be presented in this talk.
Since its first appearance in 2017, Deepfakes have evolved enormously from an AI gimmick to a powerful tool. Meanwhile, different media outlets such as «Leschs Kosmos», Galileo, and other television formats have been using TNG Deepfakes.
In this talk we will show the different evolutionary steps of the Deepfake technology, starting with the first Deepfakes and ending with real-time Deepfakes of the entire head in high resolution. Several live demos will shed light on individual components of the software. In particular, we focus on various new technologies to improve Deepfake generation, such as Tensorflow 2 and MediaPipe, and the differences in comparison to our previous implementations.
