Noteworthy advancements in the field of deep learning have led to the rise of highly realistic AI generated fake videos, these videos are commonly known as Deepfakes. They refer to manipulated videos, that are generated by sophisticated AI, that yield formed videos and tones that seem to be original. Although this technology has numerous beneficial applications, there are also significant concerns about the disadvantages of the same. So there is a need to develop a system that would detect and mitigate the negative impact of these AI generated videos on society. The videos that get transferred through social media are of low quality, so the detection of such videos becomes difficult. Many researchers in the past have done analysis on Deepfake detection which were based on Machine Learning, Support Vector Machine and Deep Learning based techniques such as Convolution Neural Network with or without LSTM .This paper analyses various techniques that are used by several researchers to detect Deepfake videos.
