The Deepfake Detection Challenge (DFDC) invites people around the world to build innovative new technologies that can help detect deepfakes and manipulated media. The DFDC is a collaboration between Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, and the Partnership on AI.
In 2019, Shift Lab partnered with Airlift and DFDC to develop the DFDC website, registration process, and dataset downloads using AWS.
Identifying manipulated content is a technically demanding and rapidly evolving challenge.
Journalists, fact-checkers, policymakers, civil society organizations, and others are dealing with malicious use of synthetic media globally. They need increased access to useful technical detection tools and other resources for evaluating content.
