TRUSTED MEDIA CHALLENGE
BACKGROUND
Fake media is an existential threat to societies today. If left unchecked, it risks becoming a serious national security concern. AI Singapore is launching the Trusted Media Challenge to test out solutions and explore how Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies can be leveraged to combat fake media.
TASK
Given a set of original and fake videos, the participants will be asked to build models to return a probability that any given video is a fake one.
DATASET
The challenge dataset consists of both real and fake media (i.e. videos with audio). The real videos are from various sources including news reporters and consented actors, with the majority of Asian ethnicity. The fake media are created using different fake media generation methods based on the real media described above. The videos in the dataset have various durations, background, illumination, a minimum resolution of 360p and may contain perturbations that mimic transmission errors and bad compression. Perturbations exist in both real and fake media and such perturbations are not regarded as manipulation.
