OBAMA FINALLY ADMITS HE'S A KENYAN USURPER!

Postby Abdul Alhazred » Thu Jul 13, 2017 12:29 pm

Well not yet, but it could happen in the not too distant future. :)

An AI can replace what a world leader said in his video-taped speech. This will end well. Not.
The Register

Researchers have crafted algorithms that can blend an audio recording of someone talking with a video of them saying something else entirely – and create a new convincing lip-synched video with the replacement sound.

In other words, the resulting video carries the injected audio, rather than its original sound, and the frames are manipulated so that the speaker's face and mouth movements match the new audio.

You can be forgiven for seeing this as a vital stepping stone to creating the ultimate fake news – highly believable forged video evidence. Imagine taking a clip of someone important speaking at a private event, and using the aforementioned software to dub in a completely new script, voiced by a skilled impersonator or generated by another AI such as Lyrebird, and then distributing that fraudulent footage.

Will this technology provide plausible deniability for videos that weren't doctored?

For example, if you get caught on video saying something embarrassing or incriminating, you can deny it and claim the video was "photoshopped" (or whatever the appropriate neologism will be).

Will this technology cause future undercover video exposés to lose their credibility?

Or will the "uncanny valley" prove insurmountable (if I may mix metaphors)?

I wonder if you can "secure" a recording by embedding important pixels in it according to some clever algorithm or encryption or whatnot. Then if someone used an alternate version the disruption could be provable.

As convincing as photoshop but ultimately trivial to show doctoring when examined.

The Fuhrer, he loved everyone. He should have had a better PR firm.

I can't wait.
