Deepfake videos are emerging to be the most dangerous form of crime. Deepfakes involve manipulating videos to show someone saying or doing something they never said or did. According to a report by University College London (UCL), fake content would be difficult to detect and stop, and that it could have a variety of aims – from discrediting a public figure to extracting funds by impersonating a couple’s son or daughter in a video call.
The rising trend in deepfakes has raised concerns regarding the “destructive potential”, and the incidents have opened the global debate over fake posts and deepfakes, for which Kroop AI, a Gandhinagar-based startup, has developed a solution.
Started in February 2021 by Jyoti Joshi, an AI scientist; and IIT alumni Milan Chaudhari and Sarthak Gupta, Kroop AI is a deployable AI-enabled platform for businesses and individuals to identify deepfakes across audio, video, or image data. The platform is deep learning-based, which detects and analyses deepfakes in detail across different platforms and information mediums.
