The manufacture of fake movies was not born yesterday and with the advent of systems called "deepfake" it has become easier, but even with the help of artificial intelligence it was necessary to have a good number of photos of the subject to "clone" to get a good result.
Today a Samsung search it may have speeded up and simplified the process enormously.
The new model may be able to bring out a subject's Fake video from ONE photo only, improving in accuracy if more are used: the video accompanying the results of this research is impressive.
There is a corollary: technology can also be applied to paintings! Seeing the Monnalisa come to life and move is damn fascinating.
The other side of the coin? We know it: it will always be easier to build fake news and scams.
"These results push the boundaries of technical progress even further," notes one of the researchers involved, Hany Farid. "They will lead to the production of visual content that is virtually indistinguishable from the real one."
