These days the news of fake videos is increasing a lot. Now recently, deepfake has become a topic of discussion after a video of ‘Pushpa’ fame South superstar Rashmika Mandanna went viral. Although that viral video was not of Rashmika but was a fake video. Actually, the video being mentioned was actually of social media influencer Zara Patel, which was edited and Zara Patel’s face was replaced with Rashmika Mandanna’s face. After this video surfaced, Union Minister Rajiv Chandrashekhar said that deepfake video is the most dangerous form of misinformation.
Responsibility of social media companies should be fixed on such videos. Not only this, Amitabh Bachchan has also shared the video and asked for legal action to be taken on it. This viral video of Rashmika Mandanna is a very big and latest example of deepfake. The word deepfake we are referring to, let us know what it is after all? And what is the way to identify it? Deepfake videos are created using a special machine learning method called deep learning. In deep learning, the computer is given two videos or photos and after seeing them, it automatically makes both the videos or photos the same. It’s like copying something.
In this, one’s face is replaced with someone else’s face.
In very simple language, deepfake is an edited video. In which someone’s face is replaced with someone else’s face. Deepfake videos are so accurate that you cannot identify them easily. If we talk about identifying deepfake videos, then identifying such photo-videos is not easy but it is not impossible either. To identify them you will have to watch the video very carefully. In which a lot of attention will have to be paid to facial expression, eye movement and body style. Apart from this, you can also identify them by their body colour.
Such videos can also be identified through lip syncing.
Because in such videos the color of the face and body does not match. Also, such videos can be identified through lip syncing. Talking about punishment for making deepfake videos, action can be taken under IPC section and heavy fine can also be imposed. Apart from this, if someone’s image gets tarnished then a case of defamation will also be filed. Apart from this, action can also be taken against social media companies under IT rules. And within 36 hours after the complaint, social media companies will have to remove such content from their platforms.
