Deepfake videos are coming — fake news, fake porn, fake everything

Deepfake videos are becoming a thing.

“Seeing is believing” doesn’t account for a deepfake internet, i guess.

Now, just about anyone can be in almost anything — and there’s no clear solution nor any serious consequences for the bad guys.

“Revenge porn” just caught onto a whole new dimension.

And so did fake news and bots stirring up storms on social media. I hate to be a social media pessimist, but this development could have serious consequences.

This could be further fuel for the discourse on fake news and the techlash; let’s hope that our critical minds will be able to keep up.

We should be less dumb on the internet, not more.
