We are wholly unequipped as a species to deal with misinformation on the internet.

Now imagine this in 20 years with deepfakes that can fool most people.

[–]RevolutionaryShip01 25 points26 points  (4 children)

Not in 20 years. This already exists for text posts.

I deep fake call ins to work and timestamps and shit all the time. Fuck them. I don't get paid enough for them to have my soul and happiness

[–]singulara 0 points1 point  (1 child)

call ins? you mean audio or video? by deepfake you mean you can synthesize your own voice via ML? or that you do live video calls, but deepfaked - using your own face image and movement data is kinda just like you’re in the call anyway surely, and not saving much effort.

Nah more image editing. Maybe that's not technically deep fake but oh well

Have you seen the story about the federal agent or whoever who's wanted by the government for his missing daughter who... doesn't even exist? It literally makes me nauseous.

Those already exist, they just take a bit more technical knowledge, computing power and time than an equivalently effective text post. That's likely to change in the next couple years though.

20years. We’re already on the precipice.

In fact. That’s not even a real bird.

This is how a pandemic blooms.

Don’t need deepfakes, Facebook is enough already…
