Fake Elon Musk using real-time Deepfake A.I on Zoom meeting

Recently a programmer amed Ali Aliev created a method for making real-time Deepfakes. Aliev pretended to be celebrity billionaire Elon Musk to check the idea, and wandered 'accidentally' into the wrong online meeting. Usually I'm not a fan of pranks but this might be the slenderest Zoom-bombing ever achieved.

Clearly this is not the true Elon Musk. But judging from those reactions, it could be reasonably persuasive in the Zoom format due to popular resolution and drops in frame rate. And if the surprised looks on their faces (check out the one on the left when Fake Musk praises their hair) are not the real thing, those are some pretty good performers.

The so-called Avatarify technology. Aliev created it using open-source AI technology named "The First Order Motion Model For Image Animation," created by researchers at Trento University in Italy.

Avatarify overlays the profile of another human in real-time on your own. Most Deepfakes allow you to pre-record segments but the robust enough for Avatarify to function when streaming. However, it needs a pretty heavy Computer (Aliev suggests in this Vice article a top-notch gaming Machine), and at least a clear understanding of programming and AI.

Sadly, for the time being, if you want to use his face as a guide, it looks like you'll have to train Avatarify on your own Elon Musk database! The Computer models currently listed include:

· Albert Einstein

· Eminem

· Steve Jobs

· The Mona Lisa

· Barack Obama

· Harry Potter

· Ronaldo

However, if you have the time, enthusiasm and hardware at your fingertips, you can train Avatarify to work with just about any face as long as you have enough images for the AI

to work with (EDIT 4/21 1:15 PST: The creator reached out to us to let us know you don't have to train it, you just have to put the images in the folder).
