What is Deep Fake?
Deepfake AI is a type of artificial intelligence that is mainly used to create convincing images and videos. The main idea of deep fake is that it can easily swap your identity with that of another without any chance of loopholes. They also create entirely original content where someone is represented doing or saying something they didn’t do or say.
Most of the deep fakes are generally pornographic portraying fake and nude images and videos of stars and renowned personalities. This is not only scary but can also ruin someone’s life in a second.
