Make It Til You Fake It

“Photo fakery is far from new, but artificial intelligence will completely change the game. Until recently only a big-budget movie studio could carry out a video face-swap, and it would probably have cost millions of dollars. AI now makes it possible for anyone with a decent computer and a few hours to spare to do the same thing. Further machine-learning advances will make even more complex deception possible—and make fakery harder to spot.” In MIT Tech Review, Will Knight shows just how easy it is to use AI to make “real fakes.” If you think truth is elusive now, just wait. Fake America Great Again.
