The Deepfakes thread

Lucas' neck on this video is indeed horrifying.

 

And, tbh, I find this tecnology a little creepy. What will stop people with bad reasons from using it? For example, someone wanting to descredit an adversary may deepfake him doing bad stuff.

In about five years both visual and audio deepfakes will be basically perfect. Interesting times.

 

AI will stop this from ever happening...but will enslave and harvest us in the process.

“Interesting times”? More like “scary as f*** times.” Like @Edmilson said, this is technology begging to be misused. 
 

I’ll wryly call attention to Ian Malcolm‘s trenchant line here, but it was not much fun to watch that video. At least for me.

They can replicate Lucas’s head, but they will never deepfake that neck. The technology will never exist.

Have you seen The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey? They're getting pretty close!

So basically they could use this tech to replace Brandon Routh with Chris Reeve in Superman Returns? Too bad the movie wasn't very good.

 

They could use this tech to make a new movie.

I don’t know what it would be, but as a society, there must be something we can do to keep computer scientists from gleefully racing to bring about our destruction from some kind of digital apocalypse.

 

Deepfakes need to be made illegal, like @Bryant Burnette says. More than that, they probably ought be treated by everyone as no less intuitively or ethically reprehensible than rape, eugenics or underage porn. There are several things that we as a species agreed not to do for the sake of preserving our humanity — human cloning, biological warfare — and this is a technology that deserves to be on that list.
