What is a Deepfake?

This word comes from a combination of “fake” and “deep learning”. Deep learning is a kind of algorithm called “neural networks” that learns to replicate patterns by going through large data sets. With computing prowess created with machine learning, deepfake can create a convincing fake photo…
