OUR MISSION

Why the name DuckDuckGoose?


Duck Duck Goose is a children's game. It is the English name for what we call “zakdoekje leggen” in Dutch.

In this game, a group of players sits in a circle, while another player walks around tapping to each player in turn, calling each a "duck" until finally calling one a "goose", which designates the chosen player as the chaser. The player who identified the “goose” must quickly run away and the "goose" must try to tap him or her. The story is that there is a "goose" hidden between the "ducks". But the "goose" looks like one of the "ducks". It is indeed a matter of catching, or detecting, the "goose".

At our company DuckDuckGoose, it's not about the children involved in the game as "ducks" or a “goose”, but about deepfakes that hide among authentic audiovisual material and are indistinguishable to humans. The duck test, i.e., if it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, then it probably is a duck, no longer applies in the case of deepfakes. A goose might look exactly like a duck, but we from DuckDuckGoose can tell the difference.
