The real possible threat and harm of deepfake videos in our society is making the rounds in the media. Due to the potential threats and the technological capabilities, the Pentagon and DARPA are frantically attempting to get ahead of Deepfakes.

According to Wikipedia, Deepfake is a technique for human image synthesis based on artificial intelligence. It is used to combine and superimpose existing images and videos onto source images or videos using a machine learning technique known as generative adversarial network. The phrase “deepfake” was coined in 2017.

It seems like a Dark Mirror-esque real world scenario could be on the horizon for humanity. I have a saying that “there’s good and bad in everything”…the good is, whomever decided to overlay Mike Tyson as Oprah Winfrey along with Snoop Dogg as Gayle is a genius.
