Researchers at the University of Washington have produced a photorealistic former US President Barack Obama, reports Nation.
The scientists used Artificial Intelligence to model how Mr. Obama moves his mouth when he speaks. The technique puts any words into the synthetic Barack Obama’s mouth and comes out as the real Obama would speak.
Scientists convert audio sounds into mouth movements and blending them onto an existing video of speech. Proving how easy it is to produce fake news.
So why did the researchers choose Obama for their project? The scientists chose Obama for their work because there were hours of high-definition video of him available online in the public domain, they said.
