Deepfakes: The Funny, Strange and Dangerous World of AI-Assisted Face Swap Videos
In the past few years, tens of thousands of videos featuring one person’s face on someone else’s body have appeared on the internet. These “deepfake” videos are made using software that uses artificial intelligence to learn how to place one face on another body. Instagram user, Myster Giraffe, who has made some of the most popular comedy deepfake videos talks about his process. NYU Tandon Professor and co-founder of NYU’s Center for Cyber Security, Nasir Memon, discusses the potential dangers of ever-improving deepfake technology and a possible solution to the problem of image tampering detection.
