deepfake

(redirected from a deep fake)

deepfake

1. A fake video of someone created using artificial intelligence methods ("deep learning"), typically with the goal of mimicking that person's physical attributes and mannerisms to the extent that it appears real. We're in trouble if a lot of people think these deepfakes are actually genuine.
2. The system or method used to create such a video. When bad actors start using deepfake to spread disinformation, it's going to be hard to stop.

One of the worst victims so far was an Indian investigative journalist, who vomited one day last year as she opened her laptop to discover a deep fake sex video that featured her face on another woman's body, spreading like wildfire through Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp.
