CNet: Deepfakes may ruin the world. And they can come for you, too

Thinking about deepfakes tends to lead to philosophical head-scratchers. Here's one: Should you worry about your face being grafted into hard-core pornography if deepfakes are bent on sabotaging global power?

Deepfakes are video forgeries that make people appear to be doing or saying things they never did. Similar to the way Photoshop made doctoring images a breeze, deepfake software has made this kind of manipulated video not only accessible but also harder and harder to detect as fake.
