Deepfake Detection Challenege

Steering Committee

The governance of the challenge is facilitated and overseen by the Partnership on AI’s Steering Committee on AI and Media Integrity, which is made up of a broad cross-sector coalition of organizations including AWS, BBC, CBC, Facebook, First Draft, Microsoft, New York Times, WITNESS, and XPrize. The representation across sectors allows for a range of viewpoints and collaboration to address the needs of society more broadly.

Academic Advisory Panel

We want to catalyze more research and development in the area of deepfake detection and ensure that there are better open source tools to detect deepfakes. That’s why we have engaged with faculty researchers from Cornell Tech, MIT, Technical University of Munich, UC Berkeley, University at Albany-SUNY, University of Maryland, University of Naples Federico II, and University of Oxford.
