Today we’re joined by Nataniel Ruiz, a PhD Student in the Image & Video Computing group at Boston University.
We caught up with Nataniel to discuss his paper “Disrupting DeepFakes: Adversarial Attacks Against Conditional Image Translation Networks and Facial Manipulation Systems,” which will be presented at the upcoming CVPR conference. In our conversation, we discuss the concept of this work, which essentially injects noise into an image to disrupt a generative model’s ability to manipulate said image. We also explore some of the challenging parts of implementing this work, a few potential scenarios in which this could be deployed, and the broader contributions that went into this work.
