This innovative AI technology creates so much more. With a single selfie, you can be anyone and anywhere.
What Is Deepfake?
The traditional Chinese face-changing skill is done through masks, while the face-changing in Deepfakes is realized by AI technology. It replaces one person's facial features with a video made by another person. There is no sense of disobedience, which is eye-opening. Just like pictures, videos can be "PS" too. From the perspective of the development trend of technology, Deepfake will definitely get a boost.
How Deepfakes Are Created?
Machine learning is the main means of making a deepfake, which expedites the process and cut the cost. Deepfake is a combination of multiple technologies, and it's based on an autoencoder. Autoencoder is a type of artificial neural network used to learn efficient codings of unlabeled data. The encoding is validated and refined by attempting to regenerate the input from the encoding. To generate a deepfake video, developers need to build a computational model by training on hours of footage of the target to obtain a more natural merging effect.
How to Make a Deepfake Without Coding?
There are apps like Zao, Reface, Facemagic, and online websites like Deepswap, and Deepfakesweb that can help you make a deepfake video. Let's take Deepswap as an example and check the steps to make a nice face swap.
Deepfake Step 1:
Open the site HERE
Upload original video/photo/GIF/meme you want to swap with.
Recommended Size & Length:
Video: Max 100 MB, 120 s
Photo: Max 10 MB
GIF: Max 15 MB
Deepfake Step 2:
Add A Face you want to swap which can be a selfie or a portrait of someone.
Deepfake Step 3:
Press the Create bottom.
Deepfake Step 4:
Save the Deepfake or Upload the next file.
Let Deepfake Go Further
For the progress of AI research, the scientific community must be able to collaborate with cutting-edge models to effectively explore their promise while looking for any loopholes. Collaboration across research organizations is critical to the responsible development of deepfake AI systems and deepfake detection mechanisms.
