    "Deep Fakes" Are Coming

    I have heard a bit about "deep fakes" from listening to Glen Beck the past couple of weeks. Essentially it is the ability of bad actors to manufacture videos of anyone doing anything, that is unbelievably realistic. This will surely be used as a tool by globalists, lefties and other tyrants with the support of the lying media to destroy opposition. Think about how readily the media continues to push an obviously false narrative about the Covington boys and what they would do with unbelievable realistic videos of people saying and doing anything?
    How damaging will this be? I predict that the left plans to use it in 2020 to try to prevent Trump from being re-elected.
    Thoughts?

    Recent events amply demonstrate that false claims–even preposterous ones–can be peddled with unprecedented success today thanks to a combination of social media ubiquity and virality, cognitive biases, filter bubbles, and group polarization. The resulting harms are significant for individuals, businesses, and democracy. Belated recognition of the problem has spurred a variety of efforts to address this most recent illustration of truth decay, and at first blush there seems to be reason for optimism. Alas, the problem may soon take a significant turn for the worse thanks to deep fakes.

    Get used to hearing that phrase. It refers to digital manipulation of sound, images, or video to impersonate someone or make it appear that a person did something–and to do so in a manner that is increasingly realistic, to the point that the unaided observer cannot detect the fake. Think of it as a destructive variation of the Turing test: imitation designed to mislead and deceive rather than to emulate and iterate.

    I noticed Adam Schiff warning about it on Twatter. He is obviously afraid of real video evidence and plans on saying the video or videos are “deep fakes”.

    What if, we are watching a tv show in the evening and breaking news interrupts with an emergency message from the White House. There on the screen our President is issuing “vital” information about impending doom, or whatever else you can imagine. Only it’s not really him, it’s a “deep fake”.

    How will we know what’s real and not real from this point forward?

    These are freaky weird times we live in!

    That will be misused. Take it to the bank.

    A victim of a deep fake is going to find it nearly impossible to contradict without a perfect alibi and I’m pretty sure that will be covered.

    Listen to old Glenn most every morning myself. He does pretty good till he starts waxing emotional and starts blubbering. That drives me crazy.

    Yes this has been available technology (for those willing to pay the price) for several years. Now it is available for free. Of course it is going to be continued to be used in campaigns (on both sides of the aisle).

    So how can you trust the images you see on your T.V. screen? In short. you cannot. That is why I have not paid for T.V for almost 30 years.

    Maybe this means you cannot continue to sit on your ass and trust the propaganda that is pumped into you. Maybe spend some time doing research on your favorite candidates or just don't vote.

    While I was in radio one of my jobs was Imaging/Production Director so I did a lot of editing of audio. I got so good that I could take various clips of you saying things and rearrange it to make you say just about anything.

    This technology not only blows away what I could do, it also makes it easy to do it. Scary times for sure.

    Yeah, I don't see any potential for misuse here at all.
