Eyal Gruss, a new-media artist and a machine learning practitioner with a PhD in physics proposes that you can be anyone. Yes, you and he will show you how it is done. Recent developments (as recent as mid- April) have made open-source code freely available which makes creating live real-time deep-fake in Zoom and Facebook Live entirely possible.
Where does this possibility put us on the axis in between the promised cybernetic utopia and trolling potential? Infinity. Can this be a middle ground between online participation policing and personal privacy? A significant part of the workshop is a hands-on jam, where participants will create deep fakes, using online tools which do not require prior coding or machine learning know how. You will also practice playing with live avatars in zoom. The tutorial is focused on applicative and creative aspects.
