The realtime deepfakes of the Innovation Hacking Team of TNG Technology Consulting GmbH was shown on German state television ZDF. You can watch the current issue of “Leschs Kosmos – Der Manipulation ausgeliefert?” at the Mediathek.

Talk about Realtime Deepfakes now available in EnglishFebruary 17, 2020
Our talk about Realtime Deepfakes is now available in an English recording session on YouTube. Enjoy!
Talk about “Realtime Deepfakes” is now on YouTubeSeptember 11, 2019
Ever wondered how we realized doing Deepfakes in realtime? Watch our talk on YouTube.
At this point in time there the video is only available in German language. We hope to serve you an English recording as soon as the J-Fall is over. Bert van Schrijver doing organization at J-Fall told us that presentations will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube. As we will have our Deepfake talk there it shouldn’t take much time to be available. 😉
Realtime Deepfakes in the mediaSeptember 3, 2019
Within the last week a few news articles were published about our realtime deepfakes implementation. Here are some articles linked to their original sources.
Furthermore Daniel Fritzler, a visitor of our booth at TDWI conference, tested our realtime deepfake showcase and wrote a Science Fiction short story on this.

Now in Realtime – Deepfakes 2.0 published by TNGJune 19, 2019
It has been quiet on our blog for a while. The reason for that is that we were working very hard on new awesome showcases. There was a mission we defined for our team:
“Make deepfakes work in realtime on video streams”
Deepfake is a technique for human face synthesis based on artificial intelligence. It is used to combine and superimpose existing images and videos onto source images or videos using a machine learning technique known as generative adversarial network.
Long story short – We did it!
The hardware hacking team of Unterföhring near Munich based IT consulting company TNG Technology Consulting GmbH wrote a new software based on DeepFaceLab.
The result is a software realizing Deepfakes in realtime, instead of postprocessing video sequences like in the original understanding of Deepfakes.
A person is filmed by an RGB webcam and the face will be replaced by someone else‘s face, e.g. Barack Obama, with the corresponding facial expression.
At this point in time we only want to show you a short sequence of our Deepfakes 2.0 implementation as our neural networks are still in training mode! Stay tuned!
For Deepfakes 2.0 a new conference talk was written as well. It was premiered at Big Techday 2019 in Munich, Germany.
If you are interested into Deepfakes 2.0 and want to invite us for giving a talk on that don’t hesitate to contact us!

Press coverage on the telepresence systemJune 27, 2017
The Avatar telepresence system is currently heavily covered in German media. Today we had two appearances in local newspapers (both print and online) as well as in German national TV.
Here is the video in the ARD Nachtmagazin
