In this episode of the Crypto Conversation Andy is joined by Arif Khan, CEO of Alethea AI, a decentralized Synthetic Content Network that allows users to own the rights to their AI-generated identity, secured by a blockchain. Are you ready to monetize your likeness, face and voice data in a trusted environment?
Why you should listen:
Deepfakes are hyper-realistic AI-generated synthetic media in which a person in an existing image or video is replaced with someone else's likeness. Deepfakes can be used to deceive, such as a manipulated video of a politician deployed in an attempt to cause political unrest. However, individuals and media companies are now using the tech in exciting and creative new ways to enable virtual influencers and new digital and social media opportunities. The result is that the lines between virtual, digital, social, and reality continue to blur.
Synthetic Media is an emerging creativity multiplier that enables a new kind of storytelling. Like all technology, it can be used in both positive and negative ways. China’s attempt to contain the Coronavirus is likely to accelerate the trend towards remote work, VR, and virtual identities. The future is likely to be weirder and stranger than you dared hope.
