How AI-generated Videos could be the next big thing in fake news

Forget fake news for a moment.

What’s replacing it? Artificial intelligence is now able to generate a convincing video of a celebrity or public figure. For illicit purposes, these videos are called deepfakes and show a celebrity superimposed into an adult movie. A programmer finds existing video and audio for a known figure, then the AI takes over and creates a brand new version.

However, fake videos showing President Trump speaking at an event, or a world leader declaring war, or a politician making false claims could be on the near horizon.
