Seeker looks at the implications that “deepfakes” could have on journalism and society as we know it.
Deepfakes are videos where the face of a well-known person has been put on the face of someone else. It’s also used to describe when a part of someone’s face has been changed so that they appear to be saying something that they never said. Although most people can tell the difference between a real video and a deepfake video, it’s only a matter of time before it will become impossible to tell what’s real and what’s not.
In this video, we hear from an expert about the implications that this tech could have. What’s even scarier is that it’s getting better and better by the second. Deepfakes aren’t hand-stitched by humans. They use machine learning AI to create the best faked image that they possibly can. This means that we can’t rely on looking for human mistakes, the AI programs will be able to make flawless changes that we won’t be able to detect with our vision alone.
