“A Tsunami of Fake Sh*t”: Joe Rogan Sounds Alarm on Deep Fake Videos

“They can make video of you saying things from a single photograph”.

Published

Podcaster Joe Rogan has sounded the alarm on deep fake videos after researchers at Samsung AI were able to professionally create talking heads out of people in old black and white photos and even paintings.

Working at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, the scientists have been able to simplify “realistic neural talking head models” which normally require a huge dataset of images to look genuine.

The researchers created life-like talking heads with just a few images of a person and even in some cases just a single image.

“Here, we present a system with such few-shot capability,” write the scientists. “It performs lengthy meta-learning on a large dataset of videos, and after that is able to frame few- and one-shot learning of neural talking head models of previously unseen people as adversarial training problems with high capacity generators and discriminators. Crucially, the system is able to initialize the parameters of both the generator and the discriminator in a person-specific way, so that training can be based on just a few images and done quickly, despite the need to tune tens of millions of parameters. We show that such an approach is able to learn highly realistic and personalized talking head models of new people and even portrait paintings.”

The video example of the study shows a painting of the Mona Lisa talking animatedly. A photo of Albert Einstein is also brought to life.

“They can make video of you saying things from a single photograph,” tweeted Joe Rogan after watching the video. “I feel like the water just dramatically pulled back from the shore and we’re about to experience a tsunami of fake shit.”

Numerous people have warned that bad actors could exploit deep fake technology to frame people for doing and saying things that never actually happened.

Terrorists or rogue states could also use the technology to fake world leaders making hoax statements that could be used for propaganda or even to start wars.

However, the scientists behind the project argue that the technology will have positive purposes.

“It will lead to a reduction in long-distance travel and short-distance commute,” writes Egor Zakharov. “It will democratize education, and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities. It will distribute jobs more fairly and uniformly around the World. It will better connect relatives and friends separated by distance.”

Zakharov says that in the future, people will be represented by “realistic semblances of themselves” and that concerns over “deep fakes” are overblown because “Hollywood has been making fake videos (aka “special effects”) for a century” and hoaxes are easily detected.

Why did the establishment and the legacy media flip from treating the entire UFO subject with scorn and ridicule to treating it with the utmost seriousness?

Video: Residents ANNOYED At Parents Protesting SATAN CLUB For Kids

“One homeowner parked her van on the sidewalk to block the group”

Parents in Greensboro, North Carolina held a prayer vigil in protest of Satanists attempting to setup an after school SATAN CLUB for children as young as six, but instead of being supported by local residents they were treated as an annoyance, according to a report.

Fox 8 reported that “People living along Normandy Road did not want the rally so close to their homes,” and that “One homeowner parked her van on the sidewalk to block” the protest.

Tempe Moore, the organizer of the prayer rally told reporters “we here in Greensboro do not want this in our schools.”

“This is not a time for good men to do nothing. It’s a time to let our voices be heard,” she added.

As we have previously reported, this move on kids by Satanists is happening all over the country.

The Satanic Temple is even suing an elementary school in Pennsylvania after officials refused to allow the organisation to run the ‘Satan Club’.

The one eyed greasy head Satanist was back in this latest report to assure everyone that he’s not really into Satan and it’s all just a metaphor. All he wants is to teach kindergarteners about science.

Yeah, ok dude, sure.

Watch:

What kind of hell is being unleashed when people protesting AGAINST a SATAN CLUB in schools are looked upon as the annoyance?

    Congressman Who Claimed DC Elites Invited Him to Orgies Will Face Dressing Down

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy “wants a word” with Rep. Cawthorn.

    Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn is set to receive a dressing down from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy after he claimed on a podcast that DC elites invited him to sex orgies.

    As we highlighted yesterday, Cawthorn made the astounding comments during the Warrior Poet Society podcast when he agreed with the host that House of Cards was more like a documentary than a work of fiction.

    “I look at all these people, a lot of them that I’ve looked up to through my life, I’ve always paid attention to politics. Then all of the sudden you get invited to: ‘Well hey we’re going to have kind of a sexual get together at one of our homes, you should come,” said Cawthorn.

    “I’m like: ‘What did you just ask me to come to?” he continued. “Then you realize they are asking you to come to an orgy.”

    Cawthorn also revealed that he saw lawmakers involved in anti-addiction campaigns sniffing coke.

    For the sin of speaking about Eyes Wide Shut-style elitist orgies, Cawthorn will now face heat from within his own party.

    After Rep. Steve Womack and other Republicans complained in a meeting that they were being “grilled” by the media about the claims, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said he “wants a word” with Rep. Cawthorn.

    According to the Hill, Cawthorn’s colleagues are challenging him to name names.

    “Womack said many of his colleagues weren’t exactly wild, hitting the sack at 9 p.m. and still using fax machines and flip phones, the outlet said,” reports the New York Post.

    “He criticized Cawthorn — who was not at the meeting — for lumping everyone together with his accusations of craven behavior, reports said.”

    The fact that some Republican lawmakers don’t attend such parties doesn’t constitute proof that they are not happening and there is no apparent benefit to Cawthorn in making up the claims.

    Indeed, during his comments, Cawthorn didn’t specifically say it was only Republicans who were inviting him to the orgies.

    The notion of powerful politicians attending sordid sex and drug parties is hardly a wild conspiracy theory, in fact it’s an open secret.

    Expensive sex clubs where the rich and famous go to engage in utter debauchery exist in virtually every major city in the west, so why similar activity wouldn’t take place at private homes is anyone’s guess.

    The entire Jeffrey Epstein scandal was also predicated around girls being sex trafficked for the enjoyment of the wealthy political class.
