In his article he states, “To make a convincing deepfake — an AI-generated fake of a video or audio clip — you usually need a neural model that’s trained with a lot of reference material. Generally, the larger your dataset of photos, video, or sound, the more eerily accurate the result will be. But now, researchers at Samsung’s AI Center have devised a method to train a model to animate with an extremely limited dataset: just a single photo, and the results are surprisingly good.”

According to his colleague Russell Brandom, “The potential political danger of deepfakes is real, but the worry is currently overblown”.
