"Egor Zakharov has created a new artificial intelligence system that can generate a fake video clip from a single photo. Deepfakes or fake clips that make the subjects say and do things they haven’t usually require huge datasets. This has been one of the factors keeping the technology away from bad actors.
However, the new software is cause for alarm. The development of the software by Samsung’s artificial intelligence lab in Russia has been detailed in a paper on the site arxiv. The paper's author says their research has resulted in a system that first performs ‘ lengthy meta-learning on a large dataset of videos, and after that is able to frame few- and one-shot learning of neural talking head models of previously unseen people as adversarial training problems with high capacity generators and discriminators."
