Inside the race to beat 'deepfakes' in 2020

  • Dipublikasikan tanggal 12 Jun 2019
  • "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.

    It doesn't matter though because if they feel so strongly against the other party they will March pick and choose whichever deepfakes that support their agenda and deny those that do not. They may even say that something true is s deepfake and that a deepfake detector is bias and unreliable yet reliable in another scenario doing anything within the legal system to win

    The best way to beat a deepfake is to simply not take every far fetched statement as the truth.

    Isn't it funny how the MSM is preparing the public for all of the video evidence of corrupt politicians that will be coming out soon with the Declass and current investigations after the complete Failure of the Mueller Report? Get ready folks.... There'll be confiscated blackmail videos of everything from Pedophile Politicians to corrupt individuals making illegal deals with nefarious individuals/governments. We'll see some sick stuff....much of it will be true but MSM will try to "spin" it as fake....Make no Mistake, the MSM has an agenda and this video is how they lay the ground work to control the Narrative. Prepare yourselves...

    These deep fakes don't even look real. The republicans on Fox news are only making a big deal about them so they can create doubt in the minds of republican voters about whether the very real and very stupid things that Trump says on a daily basis is just the "libtards" creating videos.

    Politicians can now get away with more. They can now deny something when they get caught on video. In addition, cops can now edit video to make you look guilty. We are one year away from this technology being mastered. This coming year will be the year of video leaks as holders of scandalous videos rush to get them out before every video ever is labeled a fake.

    In the case of politicians the creators need to be criminally prosecuted on National Security/Impersonating/Interfering with a Federal Official grounds. For public figures/celebrities it's clearly an Identity Theft/Right of Publicity issue. For private citizens someone wants to doxxx, impact the career of or silence I still think it is an identity theft/fraud issue. They really need to pass Laws against this before the election season ramps up. Can you imagine the fakes the election hijackers will put out there? They have software that can spot the fakes with even more advanced tech but for the average rank and file out there it's a 'War of the Worlds' possible scenario meant to completely confuse everyone watching it. It's the ultimate in propaganda/misinformation....a 'dark arts hoax' of public information/content fraud, it's a human persona hijacking. Soul/jacked body snatching 3.0. The lawmakers need to get in front of the issue as the potential of this tech for abuse/misuse could do tremendous damage to all public discourse, information/media silos and our social fabric/climate.

    The saddest part of this post is that I personally have already reported at least 30 hacked Russian, Asian, and South American IDclips channels for "suddenly" posting CNN or MSNBC stories. AND, the number of American sheep that are visiting and subscribing to these channels is staggering. They will continue to collect the sheep and then, when the time is right, introduce the deep fakes and manipulate all the little sheep ALL OVER AGAIN! Some of the people in this country make it way too easy for them.

Truly the cry of the imbecile. Have anything current to discuss? How about your Supreme Leader just saying it's fine to get information from opponents from a foreign power, something that is not only absolutely illegal but beyond unethical. Defend that for me please? Oh and without "because (insert name here)"

    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.

      These videos were done for comedy, not for malicious purposes and they were still 95% believable if you ignore the actual words they're saying. Imagine a more sophisticated job with malicious intent, hire a better impersonator, say more belivable but damning things, and take into account the propensity of people to believe what they see and hear and you've got trouble. Imagine if in 2016, there was a video of Hillary claiming she wanted to remove the 2nd amendment, even if she;s never expressed an intent for that. Voter perception would immediately shift against her based on misinformation.

      It's not Trump the deep fakes will effect. He's already shown his extremist base will back him no matter what he says. They'd see a fake of Biden or Bernie and believe it to be authentic. As we've seen in 2016, it only takes a few grains of doubt to tips the scales in favor of Trump. His game has always been misinformation and this could be a devastating new tool in his arsenal.
