Will 2023 be the year of dynamite disinfo deepfakes, cooked up by rogue states?

A fake amanfrommars. Nothing is sacred.

Not a good tribute, but a good example of why spotting deep-fakes isn't dependent on their rendering quality. Yeah, there will be subtler red flags than unblinking eyes, impossible hair or hands straight out of a anxiety dream or night terror. You don't need them most of the time.

Really, metadata provides a better solution, and it's all off the shelf technology and a few firmware updates. Sign your videos kids.

Pretty hard to fake that without a public key compromise, and the actual source of a video can still re-sign and repost stuff in the event of one.
