What Does DEEPFAKE Mean?DEEPFAKE is an advanced technique for human image and voice synthesis, based on machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI). DEEPFAKE technology allows producers to place anyone's likeness and/or voice in an existing image, video or audio clip, and can even be used to create entirely fictional photos from scratch.
The term DEEPFAKE was first coined in late 2017, by a Reddit user of the same name. DEEPFAKES are predominantly used in celebrity pornographic videos and revenge porn, but have also been employed in hoaxes, fake news, financial fraud and entertainment.
In 2019, the chief of a UK subsidiary of a German energy firm paid €200,000 into a Hungarian bank account, after he received a telephone call from someone he believed to be the CEO of the parent company instructing him to do so. However, the caller was actually a fraudster using audio DEEPFAKE technology to mimic the CEO's voice.
- Also in 2019, YouTube user Eating Things produced a video in which Jon Snow, one of the leading characters in the Game of Thrones television series, apologized for season 8 (which was the final season in the series and which was a huge disappointment to many fans).

It is difficult to produce a good DEEPFAKE on a standard computer, as the technique requires powerful graphics cards and computing power, as well as expertise. However, the technology is constantly evolving and improving, and there are now a number of cell-phone apps available with a limited DEEPFAKE capability. (See also SHALLOWFAKE .)
