In a parallel world, advancing technology is getting better at reproducing reality with each passing day. Have you ever wanted to add new words to a politician’s speech, star in your favourite movie, or look like a celebrity? Well, Deepfakes is the solution. Deepfakes uses a deep learning machine to create to falsify scenarios.
Although, this practice has existed for decades: this is how the Late actor Paul Walker was reinvigorated in the movie Fast and Furious 7. However, in the present times the use of machine learning has made the process swifter.
Deepfake is the result of deep generative modelling, a new advanced technology that allows us to spawn duplicates of real faces and create new ones, in addition with true-to-life images, of people who do not exist in reality.
This technology has advanced rapidly from just imitating faces to duplicating entire bodies. This technology if used ethically has the potential to revolutionise the Education sector, the health sector. It can also put an end to language barriers. For instance, using AI a campaign on Malaria was made where David Beckham spoke in different languages to share the objective of the campaign.
Deepfake technology will play an interesting role in the future in recreating past events and in picturing future possibilities. No matter how revolutionary the technology is, it is crucial to use it with the upmost caution. Although we desire to see only the positive application of this technology, the shams and the probable fraudulent schemes cannot be ignored altogether.
The idea of creating videos from plain written text is a novel idea and I see tremendous potential. Having used the beta product of vidBoard, I must confess that I was blown away with its great user interface and user experience.
I have used vidBoard for many video presentations. The idea of creating HD quality animated, human led videos out of plain text is novel and promising. Kudos to team vidBoard
My startup Craving Kombucha has used the beta product of vidBoard for explainer videos in local languages. I am quite happy with the beta product, especially its UI and UX.
After having assisted the team at vidBoard initially through the research phase of this tool and finally trying out their in-house beta version. I must say we have got a unicorn in the making. The product has come a long way and has immense capability when it comes to a media creation tool.
We have been testing the beta version of the platform offered by vidBoard for creating custom product videos for a while now. It has immense credibility as a synthetic media creation tool as well as massive potential to scale up across various business domains.
