This tech has been floating around for a while but it has seemingly just hit the mainstream. Informational video about what it is that people really should watch: The question is that as technology rapidly increases, especially the ability of AI to mimic and simulate human features, how will we ever be able to ascertain the true from the false? People often point to Photoshopped pictures as a nice comforting blanket - we can pretty much all spot a 'shopped picture right? But that's more to do with the talent of the artist (or lack thereof) than anything else. We don't instantly recognise touched up pictures as fakes. I'd argue that the biggest societal development over the past 18 years has been the rise of "fake news" in terms of the muddying effect between what is real and not real. And they all do it, the Canary to Guido, the Guardian to the Mail; the money as every football fan knows is in inflaming rather than informing and losing the context of a story is now a professional discipline in itself. How will the next generations be able to keep themselves informed and critically analyse news when even footage can be faked with high accuracy?
