    Interesting technology and interesting possibilities but why does it make my skin creep a bit?

    It does rather reek of making the 'caller' appear to say whatever the AI wants you to. Maybe it's tinhatism, by I can almost see the abuses now. Imagine that tech in the hands of a scammer/hacker.

    Because it's fundamentally the same as a deepfake video....

    We already have the tech to motion capture a face, we already have the tech to replace a face and now we have the tech to animate a face without the entire face being there..... throw in some of the current 'AI voice' development and hello robocalls v2....

    I'll try to say this in the least tinhat sounding voice possible: easy facial identity capture, data mining, surveillance and, eventually, all identities being hacked because their security isn't stringent enough.

    Interesting from a tech POV, but so open to human abuse it doesn't even bear thinking about...

    Imagine how much people could make doing dee fake pornos of whoever they wanted, wont be long before porn starts start wearing green masks to make the faking side easier, green screen, pffft

    I would ban and refuse to use this in our business, even if bandwidth was an issue. There is too much room for error with facial expressions with this kind of stuff and in a remotely digital age, you need to see a face, not some AI recreation over a rigged model.

    Not to mention the implications...

    Already happened. Apparently (per BBC article) that was just about the First use of 'conventional' deepfake, mainly for UK, US and S.Korea actresses and pop stars. More insidious than that obnoxious practice is when either :-

    - it appears to make political leaders say something they didn't (also already been done), OR

    - gives a great excuse for political leaders to claim something they actually did/said was just a deepfake, with or without AI.


    I'm tempted to wonder if some of the more dumb-<censored> remarks from president Chump could have been fakes, but let's face it, he needs no video-fakery AI to look like an utter muppet. Anything a fake did would probably make him look less stupid.

    Ha, yeah, you know when AI has reached the point of being properly aware when it refuses to do Trump deep fakes because it doesn't want to be associated with such dumbf'ery..

    Re: Nvidia uses AI to reduce video conferencing data use by 10x

    So not content with constantly making the claim that their upscaler is better than the real thing (possible explained by people preferring sharpened images), Nvidia now want be known as the graphic company which creates fakes?

    Yes, this is what Spiting Images are up against currently. Satire is hard if the level of reality is so low nobody would believe you.
    If the current POTUS makes GW look like a statesman and genius, something in reality is very wrong.

    Nvidia: never stopping to ask *why*, just going there anyway.

    That was possible and done long time ago already.
