I just had my first deep fake experience.

I entered a streaming porn page and saw a thumbnail of a really pretty asian asian girl who was really, really pretty.

Once I finished the video I thought: wow this is good stuff, I should find out who’s this girl and follow her career. The video had a name and a code on it, I googled the name and I found a Korean actress.

Couldn’t believe she was the same person so I compared their faces and they were indeed the same person. Then I looked up the code and the same video with another less pretty(but still pretty tho!) actress came out and everything made sense, it was a deep fake.

But it looks real as hell, she closed her eyes and everything!
That's why a LOT of adult websites are moving to ban this type of thing. This is a minefield, legally speaking, and I don't think any adult websites want to be the trial balloon when someone that is often in this type of thing-- like, say, Scarlet Johannsen-- decides to sue for defamation of character.

This technology scares me because how long before corrupt corporations, police or lawyers use this to their advantage?

half kidding half dead ass serious
The thing that's scary is good impersonators using this to fake stuff. I didn't see it yet in this thread but Jordan Peele did this a while back using his Obama impression. His thing was pretty benign (getting Obama to say "Killmonger was right!" lol) but it could prove super treacherous someday soon.

Scarlett Johannesburg was the Korean actress

Haha, these are neat. It's crazy how much the performance actually feels different. DiCaprio makes the character look more like wise but dangerous kid, sort of trollish. Arnold is more like just a crazy guy. Dafoe is fucking scary, but at the same time there's a slight feeling of trust. The eyes convey completely different feelings. Look at the "Don't put it in your pocket" for each of them, comes off quite different, at 4:29.



The Dafoe one is really good

edit: Ha, just saw a stream where he had Jim Carrey as Mr. Bean. Pretty good.
Scary shit

Good to know we literally can't trust shit anymore.

Imagine the Nixon tapes or shit Trump does.

Welp
I wonder if this could ever work with singing. Like cloning a singer's voice and musicality and making them sing anything.

Record labels would be resurrecting dead singers just like movies are doing now with actors.

What's interesting for film is that some of these look great and they're done after the fact.. Imagine what they'll be able to do when they know they'll be replacing the face.

Actors could sell their likeness upon death and continue to make money for their families perhaps.

First thing I thought of when I watched this and saw the Arnold clip.

I had the thought a long time ago, I wondered if a singer could bank every word and then do any song you could imagine by splicing it.
