Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Deepfakes are on the rise. Discuss here if you think these videos are a serious issue yet, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

Kind of reminds me of the Adam Selene character created by Mike, the self-aware computer in Robert Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress written in 1966.

Wouldn't it be be impossible to make 2 pictures of 1 fully faked face?

Sure you can place another face on a picture, but there would be no way both pictures would look like the same person. (even tho the initial 2 pictures were initially of the same person)

so in short: never trust someone who only has 1 profile picture.
Just reverse image search the picture if something smells fishy.

cough cat-fishing...

What source or sources of information (or disinformation)
is this discussion based on? You talk about it as though
you have all seen the same story.

Most of the stuff Justin talks about here I've never heard of either so I usually have to google it.
