Workshop on Media Forensics

June 19, 2022
9:30am – 5:00pm EST 6:30am PST2:30pm GMT

Organized by Workshop on Media Forensics

The Workshop aims to bring together a group of specialists that will address media forensics from a research point of view but also to discuss real-life examples, thus highlighting both the experience of practitioners and the application domains of media forensics.

Event Overview

The recent advent of techniques that generate deepfakes and the increasing prevalence of misinformation has heightened the interest of the computer vision community. Both academia and industry have addressed this topic in the past, but only recently, with the emergence of more sophisticated ML and CV techniques, has multimedia forensics become a broad and prominent area of research. The recent appearance of relevant datasets and the widespread concerns surrounding synthetic media and misinformation have turned the field of media forensics and misinformation into an important and timely research topic.

At this workshop, experts, including PAI’s Claire Leibowicz, will discuss:

  • media forensics
  • detection of forged and manipulated images, documents and video
  • reconstruction of media genealogy, provenance
  • analysis and detection of audio, images, and videos created by new synthesis methods
  • counter-forensics (methods to defeat traditional media forensics)
  • semantic interpretation
  • forensic pattern analysis and identification
  • ethics in data manipulation
  • datasets
