Deepfake videos can be detected by measuring the blood circulation of the person speaking, research suggests.

A deepfake is a video where artificial intelligence and deep learning – an algorithmic learning method used to train computers – has been used to make a person appear to say something they have not.

Notable examples include a manipulated video of Richard Nixon’s Apollo 11 presidential address and Barack Obama insulting Donald Trump.

These edited videos can be extremely difficult to detect, but researchers have suggested that examining how blood moves around the face could indicate what is real and what is fake, since deepfakes cannot replicate it with high enough fidelity.

EA Sports’ MMA fighter captures the blood and thunder of its inspiration


Freed somewhat from the seasonal release schedule that EA Sports follows with its mega-successful FIFA and Madden NFL series, the sporting game giant steps into the octagon once every two years with its digital interpretation of the hyper-violent Ultimate Fighting Championship.

EA has always had a fine way with crunchy pugilism, its Fight Night boxing series is much missed, but succeeded by the excellent multi-limbed combat of UFC.

But a recent revelation in research during the novel coronavirus pandemic has people suddenly very interested in understanding which kind of blood pumps through their veins. According to research published in the New England Journal of Medicine in June, data suggests that people
