Technology is touching the skies, and these days, there is a lot of buzz around deep fake technology. Here’s everything simplified for you.

 

Deepfake technology seems like a complicated topic, but today, we have simplified the concepts for you.

The technology is a method that manipulates video content with the use of high-powered computers and with the help of deep learning. 

 

What happens due to the deepfake technology? Well, the technology is so smart that it can create realistic-looking videos of an event that never actually happened. Sounds amazing yet scary, right?

 

Deepfake technology- EXPLAINED

 

Let us first understand the term “deepfake”. The term has been derived from the underlying technology “deep learning”. It is a type of AI. Deep learning algorithms. These algorithms train themselves the ways to solve problems in cases when huge sets of data are made to use to swap faces in digital content and video in order to create fake media that looks super real.

 

There are multiple methods to create deepfakes. However, the most popular and widely used these days is the use of deep neural networks that involve autoencoders that make use of a face-swapping technique. To get that done, one first requires a target video to be used as the basis of deefake. Next, a collection of video clips of the individual one wishes to insert in the target are made to use.

 

It is interesting to note that these videos can be entirely unrelated. Which means that the target might be an actor from distant lands, and you can still create a deepfake for it.
