#319 - Deep Fake It Till You Make It
Deepfakes (a portmanteau of "deep learning" and "fake") are synthetic media in which a person in an existing image or video is replaced with someone else's likeness.
The main machine learning methods used to create deepfakes are based on deep learning and involve training generative neural network architectures, such as autoencoders, or generative adversarial networks (GANs).
This issue of Cut/daily is all about deepfakes in Post Production.
It might get a little geeky, but it will be interesting!
I'll also cover a few recent examples of this technology being used to create a Russian Bruce Willis and resurrect Val Kilmer's voice.
After the next 4 minutes you'll know a decent amount about how deepfakes work, what they're being used for today and what the deepfake future holds.
Take This Further
This isn't the first, (or the last) time I've talked about AI/ML on Cut/daily so dive into these other issues for more interesting reads!
