Making the rounds (ish.)
Synthesizing Obama: Learning Lip Sync from Audio
There have been a few stories and videos making the rounds lately about the technology used to fabricate video or audio of fake statements.
This is the most impressive one in my opinion. It can generate video based solely on audio source alone. I’d say it’s something like 90% accurate looking. In a few years this could be a really interesting tool, specifically in film post production.
This was described to me by a few people as “a commercial” but it’s not. I guess it is…? It promotes “Strauss”, makers of the “
Milky” line of dairy confections.
A weird, weird little film.
