Fake videos has been common on the internet for quite some time. Before, several editing tools had to be used to create those videos. The process was complicated. However, using deepfake technology, the process of making fake videos is said to have eased.

For the past couple of months, several fake videos have gone viral online. One of those was an adult video of Gal Gadot, the main actress of “Wonder Woman”. Many think that, this technology can be used in the political arena with an evil intention.

Fact Watch have found that not only does this technology exist, it is also very easy to use. The first deepfake can be traced back to a reddit account, where the user explained the process in details. Also, a video about deepfake was found in that account. However, the account was deleted by the authorities when arguments on the topic spread.

International media have spoken about this technology. Buzzfeed actually made a video where they showed former President Barack Obama insulting current President Donald Trump. The whole video was made using deepfake technology. However, President Obama was not in the video but instead it was comedian Jordan Peele. The intention of the video was to show the impact it can create in the political sphere.

Artificial intelligence is the main factor behind deepfake technology. Pictures of a person’s profile is taken several times at different angles, creating a 3D mask. After that, the mask is placed on anyone’s face. Several websites have taken stance against deepfake. After reddit’s ban on deepfake, several porn sites have taken hard stance against the technology. However, except a countable websites, most websites have not taken action. Also, if we consider the unmonitored deepweb, the concept of truth and fake will become doubtful in the future.
