Think Trump is Scary? This is Scarier.
Wow.

Now I'm scared. The makers are proud of their achievement, but I can't think of a single legitimate use for something like this, so why did they make it? Perhaps in a venue of unambiguous entertainment, like Sat Night Live, this could work - but even in that venue the satire derives its power from the fact that it's actors, not the real personality.

Well, it's a finished product now. Good luck world. This is Goebbels resurrected to the 100th power.

Why do we put so much effort into making propaganda ever more effective, and almost no effort at all into learning to recognize it and to resist it?

Cue Trump claiming he never said X, Y and Z and all the evidence was fabricated by the fake media.

First step to the implementation of an AI branch of the government is the artificial creation of presidential sounding dialogue.

It'd be an improvement on the current situation...

At least a fair number of Americans actually LIKE Coke.....

We'll need a law to criminalize the use of this technology on a sitting politician. Could you imagine the panic that could be caused if a video emerged of the president saying something like an asteroid is about to hit earth or a pending invasion?

We must be very careful with this.

I mean... you can pass any law you want but I can pretty much guarantee you If I really wanted I already could get access to this technology. Anyone who's on the security side of IT will tell you if you've heard about it, it's likely already pretty widely available and not even that hard to find if you know where to look. So yea.... someone uses it and gets caught they could pay the price, but... wouldn't it be too late by then?

I'm not sure playing whack a mole with hackers has ever been an effective strategy. But the strategies that could work are.... undesirable at best for most people. I'm not talking this police state we're heading for, I'm talking about people bothering to educate themselves. As well as new systems for authenticating video sources ect. There's a lot of things we COULD do, but yea most likely the dumb fucks in power will pass some toothless law, or a law that is so sweeping and broad it'll be a fucking nightmare.

Why? Well come fucktard old people with no concept of modern tech prolly shouldn't be in charge of making decisions on how tech should be regulated. But that's just my personal opinion.
