Huawei rumored to be launching 8K 5G TV this year

Huawei rumored to be launching 8K 5G TV this year As by Nikkei Asian Review yesterday, Huawei Technologies could be launching the world's first 8K 5G TV, equipped with a 5G module, as early as this year. 

Now, with Samsung ' s new scary -good deepfake AI only a single image is needed to create a convincing video, and you can even use a While most uses of deepfake technology are just for fun, such as this video where Nicolas Cage's face was inserted into a bunch of different movies, all I can

Those people that you just saw… I don’t need permission from them to publish their portraits. How will police and courts deal with this new wave of fake images and videos? Could this technology be used by bad actors to incriminate completely innocent people?

Deepfake technology has been getting insanely good, with just the last few days and weeks chock-a-block with examples of everything from the Mona Lisa being animated to life and photos of dead celebrities and notables like Albert Einstein seeming to come to life with realistic speech and facial movements.

The implications are particularly ominous for currently living celebrities and notable people, such as the deepfake video of Mark Zuckerberg that circulated recently, as well as this one of Kim Kardashian.

Samsung researchers have been particularly adept at this, with the latest example being the partnership between Samsung’s AI research center in the UK working with Imperial College London to create an AI that animates and syncs up an audio clip with facial movements derived from little more than a photograph of someone.

Our deepfake problem is about to get worse: Samsung engineers have now developed realistic talking heads that can be generated from a single image, so AI The new algorithms, developed by a team from the Samsung AI Center and the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology , both in Moscow

Deepfakes made with the so-called "FakeApp" are porn clips starring actresses like Gal Gadot. These are " deepfakes ," a new kind of video featuring realistic face-swaps. In short, a computer The technology is relatively easy to use, which has created an enthusiast community on Reddit, where

All of the technical work that went into the process is explained here, but for a look at their work in action, behold. This is a clip that uses a grainy black-and-white photo of the dead Russian mystic and self-proclaimed monk Grigori Rasputin to add facial movements that make it look like he’s singing Beyonce’s song Halo:

All of that is done via the creation of what’s called a generative adversarial network, or GAN for short. “The videos generated using this model do not only produce lip movements that are synchronized with the audio but also exhibit characteristic facial expressions such as blinks, brow raises, etc.,” the researchers write in an academic paper about their work, available here. “Our improved model works on ‘in-the-wild’ unseen faces and is capable of capturing the emotion of the speaker and reflecting it in the facial expression.

The Rasputin clip above isn’t realistic at all, of course, but it gives you a sense of how developed this technology is becoming. For my money, this next one is among the more fascinating recent examples — a real audio clip of Albert Einstein speaking, matched with the same kind of AI that produced the Rasputin video. Essentially, making history come to life via nothing more than a photo of the famed scientist:
