DeepFakes are getting a lot of attention lately. It’s the process of using computer algorithms to swap faces within videos. People are putting celebrity faces into porn, which is why DeepFakes are getting a lot of press, but the software can be used for so much more than that.
Take for example one person at DeepFakes Club. They heard about Henry Cavill’s mustache problem in Justice League and decided to see what they could do. “I used a $500 computer bought off Craigslist and free deepfakes software to teach an AI how to digitally remove Henry Cavil’s mustache in a variety of situations,” the person said in a blog post.
The results are in the video above, and as you can see, the $500 computer did a pretty good job. Is it perfect? Absolutely not. But is it on par with (or perhaps even a little better) than what we got in Justice League, a movie with a $300 million dollar budget? You can certainly make that argument. In the Justice League scene in the video, the face swapping technique was used. They put Henry Cavill’s real face on Superman’s.
For another DC related example of DeepFakes, here’s Nicolas Cage as Lois Lane from Man of Steel.
