Because of Deleting President's Tweets, Nigeria Blocks Twitter Sites

The Nigerian government has just blocked the social media site Twitter indefinitely. It is stated that the reason for this blocking is because Twitter is often used for activities that can damage many companies in the country.

It is known that the ban was enforced after a tweet belonging to the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, was deleted for reasons of abusive behavior.

The deleted tweet discussed the separatist law in which Buhari said that nowadays people who behave badly are not aware of the destruction and loss of life during the Biafran war.

The Ministry of Information and Culture of Nigeria also confirmed the ban, where the microblogging site is now inaccessible indefinitely.

“The Federal Government has suspended the operations of Twitter in Nigeria. The Federal Government suspended Twitter indefinitely,” the statement quoted the Nigerian government from CNN.

On the other hand, Twitter regrets the blocking and its team is working hard to restore access from its site in Nigeria.

AI Technology from Facebook Can Track Where Deepfake Videos Come From

Currently, the development of Artificial Intelligence or AI technology is indeed very rapid. Now AI can be used to do some things that are difficult for humans to do due to limited resources and time.

But now AI can also be used to do negative things, one of which is by creating deepfake videos to deceive people on the internet, especially social media.

Adobe itself has previously made an AI that can detect if a photo is edited from Photoshop or not. Now Facebook has also announced a technology that is quite similar but specifically for deepfakes.

Developed in collaboration with researchers from Michigan State University, it is known that Facebook has created an AI that can not only detect deepfake videos, but also track where the deepfake videos are coming from.

It was stated that his party used a reverse engineering method to find data related to where the video was uploaded and who the person who made the deepfake video was.

“By looking at the attributes of the image and then tracing the properties of the model used to create the image, we were able to see where the model came from to become a deepfake video,” the researcher said.

In addition, it is stated that this AI can not only be used for one deepfake video, but also various kinds of deepfakes so that this technology can be used to uncover misinformation circulating on the internet.
