Questions

1. What was the first time of your deepfake experience? What did you feel, and why?

2. Why deepfake is useful for movie industry? What can be done with this technology? Will actors lose their jobs because of it? What genres of movies are likely to use this technology more and what genres less? Would you like a movie with a lot of deepfake?

3. A future social media of deepfake would allow people to use some faces they like as their avatars. Do you like it? Would you like to make new friends in a deepfake social media? What are the good things and bad things about it?

Session Two
4. Do you trust a news report if the anchor is a deepfake? How about music? Would you love the songs from an unreal singer? Would people worship their deepfake pop idols?

6. Please check out the ethical or criminal problems from the bad or evil money making deepfake of yours in question No.5. Do you have a solution for them?

This is pretty jaw-dropping stuff!
I would love to see its application in English learning. Imagine that we can create all sorts of scenarios and interact with different players in an all-English environment, will you still come to YoYo meetings?

Yeah, the Deepfake will be like many other technical innovations, driving some industries out of business. Making movies and games will be in a totally different landscape. Medical or any other industry that requires heavy simulation can all benefit from the technology.

Deepfake can learn our physical features now, down the road, is it going to learn our mental model or thinking process? It would be fun to have "me" and "Deepfake me" make a decision in the same scenario. Will the "Deepfake me" say and do things even more "rational" than the real "me"?

According to the database it collected from you, it might be as confused as you, about itself. :lol:
