Inside the race to beat 'deepfakes' in 2020

“Deepfakes” have changed the idea that seeing is believing – and could have a huge impact on how future political campaigns unfold. Deepfakes are synthesized video created by artificial intelligence that can depict people saying or doing things that didn’t actually happen. As we approach the 2020 presidential election, the race is on to develop new technology to tackle them. Deepfake creators are constantly adapting their techniques to outsmart new detection tactics – so it’s crucial the detection technology doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. Experts warn that advancements in technology, the spread of social media and an impressionable population could create the “perfect storm” for misinformation to spread.

    Martin Luther King jr.: “I have a dream.”

    Elizabeth Warren: “I have a plan.”

    Donald Trump: “I have the best words.”

    It is hard to believe that a deep fake of Trump could make him seem even more irrational.

    I don't believe a word now. But it's harder than that. Today there was a big news buzz about a poll that showed Biden beating Trump. That's not nearly all that was revealed by the poll, but since the DNC is utterly determined to run Biden to lose to Trump, and since the DNC doesn't want any news about Bernie, Warren, etc to get out, the coverage was obvious. The DNC has clearly gone over to the other side. Running Hillary was the same thing. Make it look like she could win when really, there should have been no way she could have done as well as she did. Fat, tired, sick, dressed in an old thrift store pantsuit from 40 years ago. Biden is an old, angry, billionaire with a huge conservative agenda. He cannot win, Biden cannot win. There was immediate reaction to the obviously biased reporting and by days end there were some corrections of sorts. But the point is, the fake is in at a deep level for a lot of reasons, and mostly, greed and corruption rule the day. Thank God the world is ending soon. And there is nothing anyone can do about it.

    The republicans will be the first to use this widely. They all but manufactured false stories about Hillary Clinton. With the new technology they will be creating all sorts of fakes. Also a lot of the fakes will be coming from foreign countries also.
