Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has responded to a deepfake video of him apparently supporting a bogus cryptocurrency scheme.
The centibillionaire declared in a recent tweet that it was “absolutely” not him.
The deepfake video, which went viral on Twitter earlier this week, is designed to entice investors to invest in a trading platform that promises 30% returns on cryptocurrency deposits.
Many Dogecoin supporters complained about the video’s poor quality, alleging that Musk’s speech sounded robotic and incoherent.
Billy Markus, a co-founder of Dogecoin, believes that anyone who falls for such a ruse deserves to lose their money.
A deepfake is a piece of fabricated media that has been convincingly manipulated to cause someone to do things that did not occur in real life.
Creating high-quality clones necessitates a significant investment in computational resources. A generative adversarial network (GAN) is frequently used to construct them.
Deepfakes are growing increasingly complex, necessitating the development of accurate detection techniques for detecting altered material.
