    Thumbs down Deepfake videos are coming to your computer any second now

    After today, don't believe anything you see on video, like Albert Einstein selling hair-care products. Deepfake was just made easier by Samsung.

    Just what the world needed, more fakery to fool people. Who thought this was a good idea?

    Our favorite actors can keep making movies long after they're dead.

    That was even the case with SKY CAPTAIN and ROGUE ONE.

    I see the TREK novels being adapted for screen, with flawless CGI actors by 2066

    It also provides a ready excuse to anyone caught on video now: "That's not me, that's Deepfake!"

    The “special effects explained” books for young people I read as a kid in the 90s and 2000s always had “putting CGI Marilyn Monroe in movies again” as a possible future development in special effects on the last page. It hasn’t happened with Monroe yet, but seeing it happen with other aged and dead actors makes me realize the prediction was pretty spot-on!
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroesí wings we fly!

    There's a recent TV ad that used Marilyn Monroe. One of those Snickers ads I believe.

    Here is Mona Lisa chatting (speakers off) and turning her head, plus Marilyn Monroe and Einstein and Salvadore Dali, completely artificial pix that look perfectly real.

    The dam broke.

    Terrifying is not the adverb, I would use to describe the AI animations.

    I have every confidence that "terrifying" will be the correct word, as soon as politically and religiously motivated extremists begin using this technology to incite their followers.

    Here we go, folks: "We are outgunned." Deepfake news--rather, news on deepfakes.

    UUIDs on videos might prove useful here.
    Bury them in the noise every minute or two.

    Realtime fake:
    Cat filter accidentally used in Pakistani ministerís live press conference
    This raises spectre of broadcast stations messing undetectably with live events.

    Putting on whiskers and ears is humorous, adding or deleting words, not so much.
    Might need to go with ministry owned equipment, and continuity signals along the bottom of the video.

    I seem to remember very early CGI of Marilyn Monroe with Bogart
