How to spot Deepfake images of people

Everything fake: Detecting AI-generated forgeries (GAN). Training analogic and deepfakes detection

Kyle McDonald in his 2018 article “How to recognize fake AI-generated images?” provides hints that may allow us to identify GAN-generated persons. Here are some of them:

  1. Straight hair and messy hair wisps
  2. Weird teeth
  3. Asymmetries (size, color, others) and missing earrings
  4. Bizarre backgrounds
  5. Somehow androgynous features (without this been necessarily a sufficient indicator)
