HONOR Launches AI-based Eye Protection and Deepfake Detection for Phones

The brand claims its AI Defocus Eye Protection technology decreased users' transient myopia by 13° on average after reading for 25 minutes, while some users even experienced a maximum reduction of 75°.

Technology brand HONOR has introduced two new on-device AI-based innovations: AI Defocus Eye Protection and AI Deepfake Detection, at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Shanghai.

Honor launched the AI Defocus Eye Protection technology to address the issue of increasing myopia (near-sightedness) caused by long-term screen usage.

The tech uses AI to simulate defocus glasses on the smart device's display. In essence, these glasses induce controlled defocus in the user's peripheral visual field to help maintain clear central vision. This creates an altered visual perception that slows down the eye elongation process, leading to nearsightedness.

Pivoting to AI Deepfake Detection, Honor says this tech has been unveiled to help prevent fraud and detect digitally manipulated content. The tech will examine frame-by-frame generated content such as eye contact, image clarity, lighting, and video playback to identify flaws indiscernible to human eyes.

Honor also stated that it has trained the AI for deepfake detection through a large dataset of images and videos related to online scams. Doing this enabled the AI to perform identification, screening, and comparison within three seconds.

Consequently, if AI Deepfake Detection detects manipulated content, a risk warning immediately pops up to alarm and deter the user from continuing to engage with a potential scammer.
