Recently, a video of Barack Obama making several highly inappropriate and controversial statements was leaked.
The footage shows the former US president sitting comfortably with the purpose of getting some strong messages across.
I never thought we’d see the day when this would come out of his mouth!
The video was made using some simple software that can be downloaded for free.
Deepfake, a portmanteau of “deep learning” and “fake”, is an artificial intelligence-based human image synthesis technique.
It is used to combine and superimpose existing images and videos onto source images or videos.
These videos have been put together to do anything from putting Nicholas Cage’s face on a girl auditioning for a musical to placing celebrities straight into adult movies (Of course they have!).
The scariest part of Deepfake isn’t placing celebrities in pornos though, it’s the quality at which you can render anyone saying anything.
Just watch how easy it is to do this live-time!
What we’re trying to say is, don’t believe everything you see or hear.
I’m not sure how many news sources are reliable these days, but make sure they have a decent reputation!
