“NOTE: The audio quality demonstrated here was additionally degraded since we want to avoid improper use of this technology. The purpose of this video is to excite the class about the potential of deep learning, not to deceive anyone. Thus, we purposely lowered the audio quality before publishing to make the synthetic aspect of this video clearer.”

“Reste à savoir où YouTube placera le curseur entre ce qui relèverait de l’authenticité et ce qui serait une théorie complotiste trop néfaste. Le dirigeant de YouTube UK explique ainsi que s’il tolère des vidéos de désinformation sur le 11 septembre, il a un avis tout autre à propos d’un autre attentat plus récent, celui de l’école primaire de Sandy Hook commis en 2012. Des conspirationnistes disent qu’il aurait été monté de toutes pièces, ce qui dépasse selon lui la limite acceptable. Elles sont « douloureuses et offensantes pour certaines familles impliquées », a-t-il précisé. Est-ce que parce que l’on touche à des enfants, ou parce que l’événement tragique est plus récent ? La plateforme garde pour l’instant ses critères d’appréciation pour elle.”

“We present a method for detecting one very popular Photoshop manipulation — image warping applied to human faces — using a model trained entirely using fake images that were automatically generated by scripting Photoshop itself. We show that our model outperforms humans at the task of recognizing manipulated images, can predict the specific location of edits, and in some cases can be used to « undo » a manipulation to reconstruct the original, unedited image.”

“We’ve trained a large-scale unsupervised language model which generates coherent paragraphs of text, achieves state-of-the-art performance on many language modeling benchmarks, and performs rudimentary reading comprehension, machine translation, question answering, and summarization — all without task-specific training.”

Selfie harm from Rankin

“Tanguy noted that Kim Kardashian has around 50 times more Instagram followers than the Louvre museum. « It’s time to stop consuming daily the visual content of [social media influencers] and move over to a more inspiring visual diet, » she said. As Rankin notes, however, it’s not all bad on Instagram. « Please note: The majority of subjects preferred their original image, » he said.”

“Sadly, it’s nothing new that smartphone companies use DSLR photos to fake phone camera’s capabilities. Samsung did it before, so did Huawei. And I believe many more brands do it, we just haven’t found out about it yet. I’m pretty sure that Samsung at least bought my photo legally, even though I haven’t received the confirmation of it. But regardless, this is false advertising.”

Facebook Fake Accounts

“These numbers are largely affected by external factors, such as cyberattacks that increase fake accounts on Facebook. Bad actors try to create fake accounts in large volumes automatically using scripts or bots, with the intent of spreading spam or conducting illicit activities such as scams. The numbers can also be affected by internal factors, including the effectiveness of our detection technology. In Q2 2018, we disabled 800 million fake accounts, up from 583 million in Q1 2018. In Q3 2018, we disabled 754 million fake accounts, a modest decrease from the previous quarter. Most of these accounts originated from commercially motivated spam attacks, and they were removed swiftly. ”
