Deepfakes for Histopathology Images: A Myth or Reality?


Deepfakes have become a major public concern on the Internet as fake images and videos could be used to spread misleading information about a person or an organization. The field of digital pathology is gaining a lot of momentum as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is approving new digital pathology systems for primary diagnosis and consultation in the US. Hence, in this presentation, we explore if deepfakes can be generated for histopathology images using advances in generative adversarial networks (GANs) and deep learning in general.
