Exploring Disentangled Content Information for Face Forgery Detection
Jiahao Liang, Huafeng Shi, Weihong Deng
"Convolutional neural network based face forgery detection methods have achieved remarkable results during training, but struggled to maintain comparable performance during testing. We observe that the detector is prone to focus more on content information than artifact traces, suggesting that the detector is sensitive to the intrinsic bias of the dataset, which leads to severe overfitting. Motivated by this key observation, we design an easily embeddable disentanglement framework for content information removal, and further propose a Content Consistency Constraint (C2C) and a Global Representation Contrastive Constraint (GRCC) to enhance the independence of disentangled features. Furthermore, we cleverly construct two unbalanced datasets to investigate the impact of the content bias. Extensive visualizations and experiments demonstrate that our framework can not only ignore the interference of content information, but also guide the detector to mine suspicious artifact traces and achieve competitive performance."
