[FORBES] Chinese Deepfake App ZAO Goes Viral, Privacy Of Millions 'At Risk'

Quote:
China is having its own FaceApp privacy storm—you'll need to ignore the irony for a moment, as the ZAO face-swapping app has become an overnight sensation. ZAO enables users to upload images and then its AI engine swaps users with celebrities in video clips.

This could be useful for RPGs, or identity theft/impersonation.

The way that pops up in my head to defend against deepfake identity crimes is continuous monitoring by a verified agency like the government. That way you can prove an alibi. Another way is to make the use of this in some fashion that would cause loss to another criminal.

i dont see how this is a "privacy risk", more like identity theft e.g. impersonation.
well unless your "face" can be used to access your personal information that is.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

this has been doable for a while now, it's just in a fancy mobile app now.

/r/deepfakes got banned like what, a year ago? but as long as you had a GPU made in the past decade you could do some pretty impressive/convincing fakes.

granted most of it was porn and that's what got it banned, but there was non-porn too

here's a video of some guys trying to do a DeepFake of Tom Cruise, had some issues but it was their first attempt


Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)

Imagine if deep fakes could be used in the future to cause (inter)national conflicts (nuclear war/wars?) or used to plant evidence of crimes people hasnt commited, then there should be developed algorithms to determine if a video was altered somehow if used as evidence or will they be used them as evidence?

your face is your personal information; it uniquely identifies you.

you're not wrong in mentioning impersonation, more like defamation, and people may argue that being seen in public gives up the right to privacy but taking your image and doing anything to portray you falsely is a violation of your privacy but you don't need to believe some random guy on the internet but i'll help you.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.

I don't think a deepfake would have too much trouble being passed off as real on the evening News, then newspapers etc. if it was something the editors hoped was true.
Cellphone app originated deepfakes could also be used as extortion on inexperienced tourists who don't want to miss their cruise departure in some country they don't know the native language to. Due to time consuming dealings with the local authorities.

And probably other stuff too.

That beat up Volkswagen beetle homade convertible rental without a working speedometer, odometer, fuel guage, parking brake, etc. from some guy working out of a pedestal in front of some bar was shady enough without worrying about this.

Considering the lies we are told day in day out by the minions of the Empire of Chaos you are worried about deep fakes causing nuclear war?
