some discussion of ctrl-shift-fake's work on the shining thread but his newest video (and the furthering/public access to the tech) suggest a dedicated thread's time has come

deep fakes are the perfect weapon, soon anyone can claim something was deep faked and anyone can claim they are being deep faked.

Not sure about the first part. Over time it will get harder and harder to trust visual evidence of anything you didn't witness firsthand, and people will find new ways to cope or they won't. Deepfakes don't need to fool people 100%, they just need to be good enough so that someone can stand up and say it's real and some real footage is fake.

i mean that's kind of what i'm saying, consensus reality is already eroded. their real utility doesn't come from 'tricking' people but to give partisans or bad actors permission to do or say what they were going to anyway

The CEO of an energy firm based in the UK thought he was following his boss’s urgent orders in March when he transferred funds to a third-party. But the request actually came from the AI-assisted voice of a fraudster.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the mark believed he was speaking to the CEO of his businesses’ parent company based in Germany. The German-accented caller told him to send €220,000 ($243,000 USD) to a Hungarian supplier within the hour. The firm’s insurance company, Euler Hermes Group SA, shared information about the crime with WSJ but would not reveal the name of the targeted businesses.

Euler Hermes fraud expert Rüdiger Kirsch told WSJ that the victim recognized his superior’s voice because it had a hint of a German accent and the same “melody.” This was reportedly the first time Euler Hermes has dealt with clients being affected by crimes that used AI mimicry.

Our research revealed that the deepfake phenomenon is growing rapidly online, with the number of deepfake videos almost doubling over the last seven months to 14,678. This increase is supported by the growing commodification of tools and services that lower the barrier for non-experts to create deepfakes. Perhaps unsurprisingly, we observed a significant contribution to the creation and use of synthetic media tools from web users in China and South Korea, despite the totality of our sources coming from the English-speaking Internet. Another key trend we identified is the prominence of non-consensual deepfake pornography, which accounted for 96% of the total deepfake videos online.

The voices and faces look accurate. The gestures are really off. With some better acting and costume design this technology could be used to make a really convincing fake—and it has like jordan peele’s obama.

If I were some deep-thinking futurist type out to make a buck I'd write a solemn book about how the invention of photography, sound recording, radio, motion pictures and television represented the First Mediated Reality Revolution (nb: the capital letters are a requirement in such books), where for the first time humans could experience reality remotely and extend their senses to any part of the world. I'd blather on a bit about the wonder of all this (nb: it really was wonderous to those who lived through it). The upshot of the book would be that You Can't Trust the Media or Even Trust Your Own Eyes and Ears Any More.

But, absent such a bloviating book, all I can say is that we are definitely entering a new stage in fakery that is going to have widespread political and psychological repercussions. Thank goodness for Real Reality (tm) or we'd all go mad.
