Digital face manipulation has become a thriving topic in the last few years, especially after the popularity of the term DeepFakes. Traditionally, the number and realism of digital face manipulations have been limited by the lack of sophisticated editing tools, the domain expertise required, and the complex and time-consuming process involved. Nowadays, it is becoming increasingly easy to manipulate pictures and videos, thanks to: the accessibility to large-scale public data and the evolution of deep learning techniques. As a result, open software and mobile applications opened the door to anyone to create fake images and videos, without any experience in the field.

The EAB organizes this two day virtual event with The Handbook “Digital Face Manipulation and Detection” as guideline. The workshop will feature presentations by the authors of this Handbook. They combine both biometrics and media forensic fields. The event is aimed at everyone who is interested in digital face manipulation from the point of view from both academic institutions and industry.

The aim of the event is to inform about this topic, and to give a well-rounded understanding of the current developments, as well as to discuss how to detect face manipulations, and current and future challenges in digital face manipulation.
