For now, the novelty of deepfake videos makes them fascinating and fun to watch. But lurking beneath the surface of this seemingly amusing technology is a danger that could get out of hand.
At present, it may still be possible to spot badly generated deepfakes with the naked eye. The lack of human nuances, such as blinking, and details that may be off, such as wrongly angled shadows, are dead giveaways that are usually easy to spot.
But as the technology becomes more advanced and GAN processes become better, it will soon be impossible to tell if a video is authentic or not.
