Advances in Multimedia Forensics and Deepfakes detection
The diffusion of easy-to-use editing tools accessible to a wider and wider public induced in the last decade growing issues about the dependability of digital media. Concerns recently reached an unprecedented level thanks to the development of a new class of artificial intelligent techniques capable of producing high quality fake images and videos (e.g., Deepfakes) without requiring any specific technical know-how from the users. Moreover, nowadays digital media strongly contribute to the viral diffusion of information through social media and web channels, and play a fundamental role in the digital life of individuals and societies. Thus, the necessity of developing tools to preserve the trustworthiness of digital media shared on social media and web platforms is a need that our society can no longer ignore. This talk will provide an overview on some results with the objective to scale multimedia forensics analysis to real-world open systems, thus including not only media tampering operations producing deceptive visual information performed with various tools/software, but also routinely applied operations such as sharing through popular web channels like social media. This seminar aims at describing recent development on AI-enabled multimedia forensics presenting new techniques for media forgery detection and source identification together with the study of adversarial attacks on deep learning systems.
Irene Amerini is Assistant Professor at Department of Computer, Control, and Management Engineering Antonio Ruberti, Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. Previously, she was a senior postdoctoral researcher at Image Forensics and Security Lab, Media Integration and Communication Center, University of Florence (Italy). In 2018 she obtained a Visiting Research Fellowship at the School of Computing and Mathematics, Charles Sturt University (AU) offered by the Australian Government – Department of Education and Training through the Endeavour Scholarship & Fellowship program. In 2010 she spent part of her PhD course at the Digital Data Embedding Laboratory, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Binghamton University (US). She received the Ph.D. in computer engineering, multimedia and telecommunication from the University of Florence in 2011. Her research interests are focused on multimedia forensics and deep learning for image and video analysis. She is member of the IEEE Information Forensics and Security Technical Committee, EURASIP TAC Biometrics, Data Forensics and Security and of the IAPR TC6 - Computational Forensics Committee. She is a Guest Editor of several international journals and Associate Editor of the Journal of Information Security and Applications, IEEE ACCESS and Journal of Electronic Imaging journals.
