Determining whether a questionable video of a prominent individual is real or fake

A system has been developed to check if a video of a famous person is genuine or fake by analyzing their speech and body movements. The system creates a reliable baseline using high-quality audio and video data to compare with the questionable video. By comparing the speech and movements in the questionable video with the authentic baseline, the system can determine if the video is real or fake.

VEHICLE DISPLAY CONTROL DEVICE

A device for controlling vehicle displays uses images from cameras to create a 3D view showing the vehicle and its surroundings. If an obstacle is detected ahead, the display can switch to show a view where the obstacle is visible along with the vehicle's direction of travel. This helps drivers see potential obstacles more clearly while driving.
