I heard about the arrival of “deep fake” videos a few months ago but didn’t think much about it.
That is until I saw the video below, which is truly amazing. Watch it closely a couple times and pay close attention to Bill Hader’s face. The transitions and likenesses are stunning, to say the least.
You are hearing more talk lately that digital Hollywood tech might replace live actors in some films—or that it could be used to bring back long-dead ones.
What is potentially VERY creepy is its use on videos of political figures to distort the truth. Be watchful as this could happen sooner, rather than later.
