Alarmed by the rise of realistic fake videos created with artificial intelligence, Facebook is funding a competition to find ways to automatically detect these counterfeits.

The competition, called the Deepfake Detection Challenge, will be overseen by the Partnership on AI, a non-profit group whose members include many leading technology companies, non-governmental organizations, and research bodies. Microsoft will also be working on the project along with researchers from several well-known universities, according to a blog Facebook posted Thursday.
