Fake videos may become the next propaganda focus

The threat of fake news is about to get immeasurably worse. Start-ups and internet users are discovering ways to quickly create realistic video using artificial intelligence, which could make it hard to know what’s fact and what’s fiction.

We are no where close to peak propaganda. In the near future, a smart phone app will digitally manipulate real people’s faces into fake video scenarios. Imagine a politician’s face incorporated into a fake prostitution video … or a pissed off student incorporating a school teacher’s image into a fake video grabbing a student’s butt … or a rogue police officer wanting to solve a crime by creating a fake video linking a suspect to a location .. it just goes on and on.

Imagine how fake stories and viral memes can (already are) used to exert control over others.

Now multiply that by a thousand times what we see today.

At some point, the only solution may be turn off all media.
