We are hearing a lot about “Deep Fake” in recent months but What is Deep Fake?
It is a technique for human image synthesis based on artificial intelligence. It is used to combine and superimpose existing images and videos onto source images or videos using a machine learning AI technique known as generative adversarial network.
You surely have seen the video of Jim Carrey mimicking Jack Nicholson in a scene from “The Shining”?
