Editing videos to create deepfakes
Producing audio and videos which distorts reality, are becoming easier to produce

something that the internet has long had a problem for. We don’t know that any thing is real for sure, and the fact that society has become so desensitised to being fed lies, therefore losing the motivation to want to find out

Everything has a purpose. Whatever messages, or even propaganda for want of a better word, that the media is pushing, there’s a hidden meaning. 

What are deepfakes

Deepfakes are videos which use technology to alter reality. They manipulate the visuals or audio of a person or their surroundings to change.

The potential possibilities of what is capable of deepfakes can be frightening.

In case you’re wondering what the problem with deepfakes is, you just have to look at the recent example of what happened just before the General Election in the UK

Being able to tell notice fake news hasn’t always been difficult. We’ve become desensitised to photoshop and computer generated imagery, especially in films. People tend to see what they want to see or believe. Our biases mean that we usually believe first, then look for things and reasons to support those beliefs. Unfortunately, this is the way that we process information

What’s the problem with deepfakes

Creating audio and videos which distorts reality, are becoming easier to produce. Creating deception on a scale, and of a nature, different from what we have seen before.

This raises questions surrounding the issue of how insincere politicians, criminals, and crooks, free rein to deny the validity of what is in fact, real footage. Painstakingly, when journalists make the attempt to establish whether the footage is real…it can backfire due it stirring up the possibility that there may be truth.

In amidst a constant flow of misinformation and fake news, will we even care to figure out what is real and detect the deception? Or will we view most information as untrustworthy.

We need to be informed otherwise we’ll be forever clueless, we need to care
