Today we have presented the Digger project and our approach on the Truth & Trust Online Conference. We explained all the audio forensic functionality that we are looking into and how this functionality can help us with detecting video manipulation and also with deepfake detection. The presentation is available via the conference website but we did not want to keep it from you so below you will find the full 11 minutes presentation.

If you are interested to learn more or have questions then please get into contact with us, either via commenting on this article or via our Twitter channel.

We hope you liked it! Happy Digging and keep an eye on our website for future updates!
