"' *DEEP - FAKE - VIDEOS* "'

HEY -HEY  - did the Prime Minister really say that............?  How are we so sure?  Can you have somebody recheck this..............

HEY did my congressman really say that? Is that really President Trump on that video, or am I just  being plainly duped?

New technology on the Internet lets anyone make video of real people appearing to say things they've never ever said.

The whole knowledgeable world  - the Republicans and Democrats predict this high-tech way of putting words in someone's mouth will become the latest weapon in disinformation wars against the  United States, and Western Democracies and........

We're not talking about lip-syncing videos.

This technology uses facial mapping and artificial intelligence to produce videos that appear so genuine it's hard to spot the phonies.

Law makers and intelligence officials worry that the bogus videos - called deepfakes - could be used to threaten national security or interfere in every elections.

So far, that hasn't happened, but experts say it's just not a question of if, but when.

I expect that here in the United States we will start to see this content in the upcoming midterms and national election two years from now," said Hany Farid, a digital forensic expert at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire.

"The technology, of course, knows no borders, so I expect the impact to ripple around, the globe."

When the average person can create a realistic fake video of the president saying anything they want, Farid said, "we have entered a new world where it is going to be difficult to know how to believe what we see."

The reverse is concern, too. People may dismiss as fake genuine footage, say or real atrocity, to secure political points.

Realizing the implications of this technology, the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is already two years into a four-year program to develop technologies that can detect fake images and videos.

Right now, it takes extensive analysis to identify phony videos. It's unclear if new ways to authenticate images or detect fakes will keep pace with deepfake technology.

Deepfakes are so named because they utilize deep learning a form of artificial intelligence.

They are made by feeding a computer an algorithm, or set of instructions, lots of images and audio of a certain person.

The computer program learns how to mimic the person's facial expressions, mannerisms, voice and inflections.

If you have video and audio of someone, you can combine a fake video of the person with a fake audio and get them to say anything you want.

So far, deepflakes have mostly been used to smear celebrities or as gags, but it's easy to foresee a nation state using them for nefarious activities against the U.S., said Sen, Marcio Rubio, R-Fla-

One of the several members of the Senate Intelligence Committee who are expressing concern about  deepfakes.
