Fox's Seattle TV network broadcasts a so-called "deep forgery" Trump speech, showing a very realistic artificial intelligence threat.

This TV station called Q13 played a smashed Trump speech, in which he somehow appeared oranger and made some interesting faces.

You can see a side-by-side comparison with the original:

After the program was aired, an employee of Q13 was fired. It is unclear whether the video was produced by the worker or is it only allowed to play.

This video may be the first deep-forged video, but it will not be the last paragraph. Social media provides less filtering, making fake videos easier to spread.

We have heard of many complicated false information campaigns. To a certain extent, the United States can be said to be the most outstanding initiator of such a movement affecting foreign decision-making.

Russia is particularly concerned with large-scale false information campaigns. These are primarily for social media, such as their notorious Twitter bots.

According to Pew Research, only 5% of Americans “really trust” the information they get from social media. This is much lower than national and local news organizations.

It's not hard to imagine that tampering videos that seem to come from trusted channels will proliferate. Combining the influence of social media with the growing American trust in traditional news organizations is a dangerous concept.

While Trump's video may seem interesting, the next video may be used to influence elections or major policy decisions. This is a clear example of how artificial intelligence is already creating new threats.
