Lip-Reading Technology Can Make You Say Things You Did Not

Supasorn Suwajanakorn, a computer scientist at Google Brain, an artificial intelligence research team at Google, has created a new kind of lip-reading technology that could possibly produce a video of you saying something you did not.

I was told about this technology during a special events assignment I was working on. I couldn’t believe my eyes.

Suwajanakorn said. “The technology is so good that you can barely tell the difference. It’s all done by a neural learning network that mimics movements in the mouth and teeth of a person from video footage.

“The computer algorithm teaches itself to imitate exactly how a person talks by watching him or her, over and over, again. It picks up on a speaker’s mannerisms by studying the subject’s teeth, lip movements, and jaw shape.”

Suwajanakorn has already created phony videos of Tom Hanks and former president Barack Obama. Check out the video.
