1) A study showed that people already are as good as a coin flip in terms of saying if certain videos are deepfakes or not. This is the milestone of the complete failure from humans to accurately tell fiction from reality.

Assuming you're talking about the FaceForensics++ paper, the human study only have people look at images, not videos, and for only 2 to 6 seconds per image.  If people had videos to look at, as opposed to relying on stitching and warping artifacts from a single image, I wouldn't be surprised if the numbers would end up being higher.

2) This awesome detection technology will solve all the deepfake problems, right? Alas.... it will just accelerate it further. This algorithm will now be used as the Discriminator on the Generative Adversarial Network, and Deepfakes are now asymptotically getting close to perfection. We already have two feet on dystopic territory.

The first detector used some 2012-era steganalysis to detect fakes, which wouldn't be able to be used as a discriminator in a GAN.  What remains unexplored is the use of detectors that exploit temporal aspects of the videos.  I'd bet that there's a reasonable number of approaches that could detect video manipulation that the GANs that deepfakes use don't.

Prediction: when the pee tapes and other incriminating tapes emerge Trump is going to use the Deep Fake Defense.

This was posted back in January... but I've only noticed this detail today. The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, the most scientifically hardcore peer-reviewed organization dedicated exclusively to assessing the real risk of a world wide catastrophe... included deep fakes and AI as major threats to our civilization, together with Nuclear weapons and Climate Change. ( Go to 29:45 in the first video )

Doomsday clock remains at 2 minutes to midnight due to fake news, climate change
