Great story for discussion today: Even experts have a hard time telling a deepfake video from a real one. Scientists for internet companies are trying to help tell the truth from the elaborately-faked.
“For decades, computer software has allowed people to manipulate photos and videos or create fake images from scratch. But it has been a slow, painstaking process usually reserved for experts trained in the vagaries of software like Adobe Photoshop or After Effects.
Now, artificial intelligence technologies are streamlining the process, reducing the cost, time and skill needed to doctor digital images.”
