Master the innovative world of deepfakes and generative AI for face replacement with this full-color guide
- Understand what deepfakes are, their history, and how to use the technology ethically
- Get well-versed with the workflow and processes involved to create your own deepfakes
- Learn how to apply the lessons and techniques of deepfakes to your own problems
Applying Deepfakes will allow you to tackle a wide range of scenarios creatively.
Learning from experienced authors will help you to intuitively understand what is going on inside the model. You’ll learn what deepfakes are and what makes them different from other machine learning techniques, and understand the entire process from beginning to end, from finding faces to preparing them, training the model, and performing the final swap.
We’ll discuss various uses for face replacement before we begin building our own pipeline. Spending some extra time thinking about how you collect your input data can make a huge difference to the quality of the final video. We look at the importance of this data and guide you with simple concepts to understand what your data needs to really be successful.
No discussion of deepfakes can avoid discussing the controversial, unethical uses for which the technology initially became known. We’ll go over some potential issues, and talk about the value that deepfakes can bring to a variety of educational and artistic use cases, from video game avatars to filmmaking.
By the end of the book, you’ll understand what deepfakes are, how they work at a fundamental level, and how to apply those techniques to your own needs.
