Are you ready for *this* dystopia?  It's pretty impressive technology,
and its uses and almost immediate potential for abuse, are obvious:
watch this video of a former President speaking, and find out it never
happened: researchers mapped former video to sound clips and used it to
create a technology that allows you to "provide video" of people saying
things they never said.

The future sucks.

Researchers at the University of Washington have produced a
photorealistic former US President Barack Obama.

Artificial intelligence was used to precisely model how Mr Obama moves
his mouth when he speaks.

Their technique allows them to put any words into their synthetic
Barack Obama’s mouth.
