    Based on the clips they've posted, you can still spot it, but you really have to know where to look.
    The process isn't as easy as the article makes it out to be. I actually looked up how to do a deep fake video, because I was curious to see if it could be easily done as I would have liked to have slapped the faces of folks who were originally wanted for an iconic role (but didn't ultimately do it) into some films and see how it might have worked. It's a bitch to do, and not simply uploading the film, picking the faces you want swapped, and then letting the computer do all the work. There's much more to it than that.

    Gee, I can’t imagine how this technology could be abused . . . :unsure:

    Won’t be all that long before anyone will be able to do it.

    Amazing and scary. I believe that some in the VR space are looking at similar technology as well as it would allow for extremely realistic user avatars.
