New tech helps Donald Trump sound dangerous and crazy

From Mashable:

Face-tracking software lets you make anyone say anything in real time

A team from Stanford, the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg has produced a video demonstrating how its software, called Face2Face, in combination with a common webcam, can make any person on video appear to say anything a source actor wants them to say.

It might be fun to mix this up with something like “Say it with Trump,” but for now the software is still in the research phase. More.

Reality check: As with the U.S. conservative movement’s hatefest against the working class, who have been rendered superfluous by cheap labour and automation, these are the sorts of tantrums that only help Trump rise.

Now he can say whatever he likes, and no one can easily be sure if he said it or not. If he himself invested in this, that was a devilish smart move.

    I have *old* tech that makes Hitlery sound dangerous and crazy. Its called “television”.

  • This was a science fiction story back in the 70s; a television crew would interview an unwitting victim to get a wide variety of vocalizations, and the next thing you knew you were watching yourself on TV saying all sorts of things you never said, mostly whatever political agenda they wanted to promote.
