Very isn't AI generates that needs to be near constant. Sense and so it's a real video real person speaking. So it seems like they're saying something they never sat. This morning it's happening in west to rose. John Snow himself seeming to apologize for sees an eight game of throw the voice and near mats to kit Harrington. Exhorting her this is not six days. But it's not hits a deep they just like this one recently surfacing of Mark Zuckerberg the more you express yourself. The more we aren't so how do you spot a fake in a deep fake step one check for blinking. Artificial intelligence builds a video based on previous photos of the famous person.

Do you think you could tell the difference between a real video. And that deep faith tells her comments or tweet us at ABC news five of course thinks it will speed he's hopefully now you can but your private but to the test. I mean I don't see you guys blinking a lot. So you better if you want to let people know that this is not a deep fake right now circling are battling to get away at me telling you about a summer there's if you see something crazy that we say. Right here on this anything that offends you entity could it break up. Yeah quake. All right thanks what we appreciate it guys we'll see you tomorrow. Agreed that.
