Don’t Believe Your Lying Eyes

We all know that the “Deep Fakes” application that’s going viral on the internet is only a crude toy compared to the technologies the government-sponsored, defence department-linked researchers have been playing with. Here’s an example from the year 2000 that shows that real-time video fakery technology has been available to the deep state for decades.

    Further information about deepfaking:

    From Tim Ferris’ blog (5-Bullet Friday) 23 Feb 2018

    Quote from Tim Ferris:

    This piece should be required for anyone on the Internet. These technologies are going to affect everything. Things are sometimes murky and misleading on the web, and it’s going to get much more challenging. Here’s just a small taste from this article: “Already available tools for audio and video manipulation have begun to look like a potential fake news Manhattan Project. In the murky corners of the internet, people have begun using machine learning algorithms and open-source software to easily create pornographic videos that realistically superimpose the faces of celebrities — or anyone for that matter — on the adult actors’ bodies. At institutions like Stanford, technologists have built programs that that combine and mix recorded video footage with real-time face tracking to manipulate video. Similarly, at the University of Washington computer scientists successfully built a program capable of “turning audio clips into a realistic, lip-synced video of the person speaking those words.” As proof of concept, both the teams manipulated broadcast video to make world leaders appear to say things they never actually said.”

    The article from Buzzfeed:

    “What happens when anyone can make it appear as if anything has happened, regardless of whether or not it did?” technologist Aviv Ovadya warns.

    The above three links derive from the first and original article.
    I have been a Corbett Report viewer for many years. This is my first post. I hope I got the protocols correct.

    After hearing about this, I am lost for words.
    Thanks Betty!

    I left a comment under the YT version but then decided to come here to get used to coming here instead. I believe this is to lay the groundwork so that when the videos of the cult abusing children are finally released, the narrative will be that they are faked. This ancient cult is really fouling up the earth experiment! I am glad you have a way to continue to give us the news outside of the google machine. Thank You James.

      Good point. Discrediting the child abusing and the rest of the pertinent “truth videos”.

      What’s real? what’s fake? what’s virtual? what’s a little of it all? These questions will soon only provoke eye-rolling. Already do to a large extent.

    • john.o says:

      Yes. All it takes is a fake used to accuse someone falsely, and then, an expert: “Oh it’s fake because xyz.”

      In any future trial if the same expert says, “This is real because qvp,” then it’s real.

      They can up their technology game, but it’s been the same game in the courts and the media forever.

    Throw in some real cloning (human) and this could get really serious!
    Today I heard a story on the radio that you could clone your pet dog for a mere $50,000 (or cat for $25,000). Just pick a company in South Korea to do the dirty deed.

    What are the odds they haven’t cloned humans yet?
    Didn’t someone somewhere promise they would never do that?

    Those of you a certain age might remember a Star Trek episode called “Court Martial,” which aired in February of 1967. In it, Captain Kirk is accused of negligent homicide of one of his crew on the basis of what is later found out to be doctored video records. The plot summary of this episode reads like a page out of today’s news:

    Here’s a brief clip of the trial scene. The whole clip is good, but you can fast forward to 2:20 to get to the punch line:

    Life imitates art? (Apologies to all for the use of Wikipedia and ThemTube).

    I must have been looking for a Stanley Cup playoff game one Sunday afternoon in May 2001, only to remember they would never risk ad revenue by conflicting with arguably, the biggest race of the year, the Indy 500. I watched a few laps and it wasn’t the race that caught my attention, but seeing what they had done in terms of virtual reality.

    In one turn, when viewed at a high angle (not track-side), you can see a billboard overhanging the warm up lane. You can tell its fake after studying it, but a first glance, it looked decent. They even placed a shadow beneath it. I found no in-car shots with the billboard, only the bird’s eye view (where they can control the stability of the camera, and hence more easily inject, and sell, the fakery). They must have given up, or received feedback of discontent from the real race fans, because only the 2000 and 2001 races had this. By the 2002 race, it was gone again.

    I don’t recall when the American NFL broadcasts started with the virtual first down line, or as James mentioned when baseball started with the dynamic billboard behind home plate, but it was likely around the same time. There was also a time when hockey had a “puck tracker” (or some such name), highlighting the path of the puck for those not-so-in-tune with the way hockey works (or physics for that matter).

    Many of my non-hockey fan friends liked it, but as a long time hockey fan myself, I found it to be much more of a distraction, and only served to de-humanize the game. Much like instant replay in the NFL is now. If I hear, “but did he make a football move?”, one more time while waiting 5 minutes for the officials to decide, it just might be my last game ever. It seems to me, if he’s playing football, and his body is in motion, well, then its a football move. End of discussion. Seems to me the people making up these rules never were athletes themselves.

    And finally, not so much fakery as manipulated ad placement. Note the red Scotiabank advert on this International football field just past the end line. In 20 seconds you can see three different angles on the ad showing it is simply set with a carefully calculated affine transformation on the plane of the playing field, so that when viewed from the angle of the broadcasting booth, it appears to be straight on with the camera.

    I’ll grant them it’s creative. And its not fake, because it really does exist on the field (albeit unreadable from 95% of the perspectives within the stadium). But I just wonder what could be accomplished if people spent their high-level math computations on more worthwhile pursuits than a simple snake-oil pitch.

    Just watched HBO’s Homeland, S7 E4, where video of a hospital emergency room was taken secretly and the entire staff treating a gunshot victim was edited out and the patient looked to be alone, receiving no treatment and reported dead by a “fake news” report. The patient was the son of a civilian militia member involved in a standoff with FBI at their farm and saw the fake report. The son was actually recovering nicely, but his family at the standoff was not aware and the poo hit the fan.

    This technology is Pandora’s box.
