When I worked for the college. I was mainly in Engineering computer support.
(I was IT before IT was though of. Only Engineering area)
We had an early version of 3D Studio and I learn how to use it.
Not as good as the pros but I created photorealistic renderings that convince me
that pictures and film could be created or manipulated to show people
who looked like they committed a crime. That was back in the early 1990's.
Not surprised that something like this has caught on.
And it's only going to get worse.

No one is ready for deepfakes. The only way to avoid them is simple: don't believe anything you read or see on the Internet. What a shame--the technology is only barely 25 and it has already been ruined completely.

I prefer to think of it in terms of HTML versions rather than years. Which makes the internet only 5. Just a baby really.

No one has ever been ready for deepfakes. Look at what the various "holy" books have done.

And most fakes, no matter HOW accomplished, are checkable, people are just too damn lazy or too damn tribe/identity immersed to bother. Like all the memes and russia-trolling and Trump tweets. It takes about 30 seconds to find out they're bullshit. People just won't/don't.

LOL .. that was an interesting read Wayfriend.

AND that rings a bell .. with the doco I watched recently about the alt right and their troll army .. whos job it is to make up shit and disseminate it via memes .. on social media .

Its insidious and far reaching and I honestly dont know how Zuckerberg or anyone else can combat that kind of shit. Cos its shit .. pure and simple shit. They are disseminating misinformation and making it more than palatable and believable .. and V is dead right .. no one does their due dilligence .. let along fact checks before jumping on the bandwagon.

Its a worry .. and their answer? Get the left onboard .. and fighting lies with lies ..

And dont please anyone start a fight fire with fire argument 🙏
