Deep learning enables one to generate high-quality and realistic audio-visual content. The rise of synthetic media will inevitably shift the paradigm in media creation and consumption. In this talk, speaker will share recent advances of generative adversarial networks and its various applications.

First, speaker will present a method that can edit a target portrait footage by taking a sequence of audio as input to synthesize a photo-realistic video.  Speaker will then show the possibility of decomposing objects in a single image for creative content creation.  Speaker will also talk about how deep generative prior can be exploited to achieve flexible image restoration and manipulation. While synthetic media technologies will significantly accelerate creative expression, it will also bring with them challenges around truth and identity provenance. Speaker will discuss how we may protect ourselves from malicious usages of such technologies.
