A fake video created by artificial intelligence featuring actresses Elizabeth Olsen and Scarlett Johansson is challenging netizens to see if they can identify the real actress from the fake.
Many were left confused because the fake photo “looks very convincing”, according to what was published by the British “Daily Mail”.
According to Al Arabiya, a short video clip, shared on Twitter, showed the two actresses talking, moving in exactly the same way and having the same haircut.
While many Twitter users were amazed at the real look of both clips, some were able to identify the fake actress, Scarlett Johansson, by incorrectly placing some shadows and what appears to be a double eyebrow and a bulging neck when speaking.
And while it’s not clear how the “Deep Vic” clip was created, it appears that whoever faked Johansson’s shots looked exactly like Olsen, with the same hair, makeup and clothes.
There was widespread controversy in the comments on the tweet that showed the fake video about the realness of the deepfake scene, which raises serious concerns “what the future will bring.”
Machine learning and counterfeiting
Deep Vic was invented in 2014 by Ian Goodfellow, who was the director of machine learning at Apple’s Special Projects group and a pioneer in the field.
The technology is a form of artificial intelligence application, which combines the terms “deep learning” and “fake”.
