    There's a BBC drama series currently on called "The Capture" with a baffling series of factions, one of which is US led and uses fake video to arrest terrorists without producing real evidence and another producing fake videos to illustrate the use of these by the first faction.
    In all this is an ex-army captain being used as a murder suspect and a young police female DI, not complicit like some of her superiors, trying to unravel all this and prove the man is innocent.

    "Oh, and this..." rather quizzical April Fool joke.

    He is guilty as sin and I can prove it with a fake video I got from the fake BBC! You're all fake news!

    Most Deepfakes Are

    Porn, and They're Multiplying Fast (linky)...


    For those worried about this issue? Feel better now, I guess.

    In November 2017, a Reddit account called deepfakes posted pornographic clips made with software that pasted the faces of Hollywood actresses over those of the real performers. Nearly two years later, deepfake is a generic noun for video manipulated or fabricated with artificial intelligence software. The technique has drawn laughs on YouTube, along with concern from lawmakers fearful of political disinformation. Yet a new report that tracked the deepfakes circulating online finds they mostly remain true to their salacious roots.

    Startup Deeptrace took a kind of deepfake census during June and July to inform its work on detection tools it hopes to sell to news organizations and online platforms. It found almost 15,000 videos openly presented as deepfakesnearly twice as many as seven months earlier.

    Some 96 percent of the deepfakes circulating in the wild were pornographic, Deeptrace says.
    Or, not.


    The startup's report describes a niche but thriving ecosystem of websites and forums where people share, discuss, and collaborate on pornographic deepfakes. Some are commercial ventures that run advertising around deepfake videos made by taking a pornographic clip and editing in a person's face without that individual's consent.

    All the people edited into the pornographic clips Deeptrace found were women. Clips of the most popular figuresWestern actresses and South Korean pop celebritieshad millions of views. Nonprofits have already reported that women journalists and political activists are being attacked or smeared with deepfakes.

    Henry Ajder, a researcher at Deeptrace who worked on the firm's report, says there are deepfake forums where users discuss or request pornographic deepfakes of women they know, such as ex-girlfriends, wanting to see them edited into a pornographic clip.

    Deeptrace is a cybersecurity company using deep learning and computer vision for detecting and monitoring AI-generated synthetic videos, aka deepfakes.

    Deepfakes present unprecedented cyber and reputation risks to businesses and private individuals, from new fake news capabilities to sophisticated fraud, identity theft, and public shaming tools.

    I don't need to follow the links, my memory is linked in already. These days this face is most popular for making memes because it already is one making the job easy. Hover the pointer over the picture. (;->)
