LEE COUNTY, Fla. – Simply put, deep fakes are using the latest technology to create pictures and videos that look like real life, but in reality, are far from it.
“It is extremely easy now to create realistic fake visuals,” said Sylvia Chan-Olmsted, the director of Media Consumer Research at the University of Florida. “It’s able to really learn from looking at a lot of images and to recreate and kind of swap and mask.”
Take this viral deep fake for example.
