Google’s DeepMind Can Now Create Fake Photos That Look Totally Realistic

A few weeks ago, we covered Congress’ letter to the Director of National Intelligence, which asked the agency to look into ‘deepfakes’, images and videos altered by ‘deep learning’ AI software. What makes deepfakes so dangerous is that the edits (especially face swaps) can look real enough to fool most people, even under close scrutiny.

Now, Google’s DeepMind has taken things a step further—instead of editing someone into a compromising photo or video, they can create photo-realistic images almost from whole cloth. Their new research paper, titled “Large Scale GAN training for high fidelity natural image synthesis,” was posted on Arxiv.org.
