Something interesting is going on with the researchers at Facebook in partnership with Michigan State University. Remember those deep-fake videos that made their way around the internet?  

Apparently, the team has devised a way to not only reverse engineer these videos to better detect their existence, but they also claim to have the ability to trace their origin through a fingerprint estimation network (FEN)

This is particularly interesting because deepfakes have the potential to find their way into the media (especially social media) landscape with malicious intent. Yes, some of these videos are downright fascinating to watch. However, we can hopefully breathe a sigh of relief now that companies and academics are collaborating on ways to identify and trace these videos should they start getting out of hand with malicious creators in the future.
