  • Deepfake tech

    Assalaamu alaikum folks.

    Have any of you heard of deepfakes technology? I am researching on it for my current job. People can recreate the image of anyone with this technology and make them say scripted things through them.

    It is a problematic tool right now since it can be used to meddle in politics - for example, a deepfake version of a politician made to say something to suit your agenda.

    But the actual individual was not involved in the making of the video and hasn't said anything of that.

    وَاقْصِدْ فِي مَشْيِكَ وَاغْضُضْ مِن صَوْتِكَ ۚ إِنَّ أَنكَرَ الْأَصْوَاتِ لَصَوْتُ الْحَمِيرِ - 31:19

    And be moderate in your pace and lower your voice; indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys."


    أَلَمْ تَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعَمَهُ ظَاهِرَةً وَبَاطِنَةً ۗ وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ - 31:20

    Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book [from Him].

    I remember reading an article about how some people were using the technology to create porn videos. So they'd take a random celebrity, grab a bunch of photos and then superimpose them on a porn stars body. That way it looks like the celebrity is in a porn video, when it's not their body.

    When I was learning about adultery and how you need four witnesses, my teacher was saying how video cameras can't be used and that you need four people to see everything. With this technology, it makes me feel better because I can 100% imagine someone using this and creating revenge porn. (I don't really need to imagine it, because it's already happened) People have photoshopped women onto porn stars bodies before, so deepfake makes it scarier in that sense since it's a seamless moving image.


    Edit: Just a reminder that if you do upload pictures of yourself onto social media, make sure that only your friends can see it.
    مَّن ذَا الَّذِي يُقْرِضُ اللّهَ قَرْضًا حَسَنًا فَيُضَاعِفَهُ لَهُ أَضْعَافًا كَثِيرَةً وَاللّهُ يَقْبِضُ وَيَبْسُطُ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ

    "Who is he that will loan to Allah a beautiful loan, which Allah will double unto his credit and multiply many times?
    It is Allah that giveth (you) Want or plenty, and to Him shall be your return."
    Surah al-Baqarah
    [2:245]

      multiple reasons on why its done. most of it is for amusement. It really started with embedded steganography some APT groups are using to capture their objectives. there isnt anything anyone can do to stop it either lol. Long live video and photochopping evolution. good luck in your research!

        Thanks but yeah there are proposals/discussions that some laws be introduced to curtail deepfake tech.

          laws are merely suggestions to people who have the skills to not listen to them. just saying!

          its a very good thing to be a law abiding citizen.... thumbsup!

            Its scary especially as some of it is actually pretty convincing if done properly.
            It seems this will be used mostly by sick individuals to create twisted content to satisfy their fantasies.
            Porn addiction is an epidemic as it is and now you can swap faces for whoever you like? Very concerning ....

                Keep in mind that altered photography came quickly after modern photography was first demonstrated. Remember the fake photos from around 1900 and even decades before?

                Photographs of a person who has paid to be photographed sitting still for their portrait. Then the photo sometimes gets altered to show a ghost like dead relative standing behind the person photographed. The photographer becomes famous....

                And then the fakes with ektoplasma emanating from wherever.

                Photos altered to make something look like it didn't. Such as a cutting and pasting to make a russian submarine look like a british one.

                Then King Kong with stop animation.

                The splicing video into another video.

                Background models that look large because they are seamlessly integrated with the foreground.

                Blue screen and green screen and the CGI.

                They all can be exposed as frauds. And so can deepfakes.
