While at first reported as something only the advanced digital conoisseurs of today could create, now a simple app allows anyone to take the face of one person and swap it on the digital body of another. While Nicholas Cage everywhere is pretty funny, the articles raise concern for the fake x-rated videos being created. That last link is NSFW. In the video above, the Fixed That For You Edition.

In early January, shortly after Motherboard’s first deepfakes story broke, I called Peter Eckersley, chief computer scientist for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, to talk about the implications of this technology on society at large: “I think we’re on the cusp of this technology being really easy and widespread,” he told me, adding that deepfakes were pretty difficult to make at the time. “You can make fake videos with neural networks today, but people will be able to tell that you’ve done that if you look closely, and some of the techniques involved remain pretty advanced. That’s not going to stay true for more than a year or two.”

In fact, that barely stayed true for two months. We counted dozens of users who are experimenting with AI-assisted fake porn, some of which have created incredibly convincing videos.
