Elon Musk Responds to His Deepfake Crypto Scam
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, has responded to a deepfake video of him supposedly endorsing a fake cryptocurrency scheme.
In a recent tweet, Elon Musk declared that it was “certainly” not him.
The deepfake video, which went viral on Twitter earlier this week, attempts to entice investors to invest in a trading platform that promises 30% returns on cryptocurrency deposits.
Many Dogecoin supporters complained about the video’s poor quality, stating Musk’s speech sounded robotic and incoherent. “This is a terrible deep fake,” said one Twitter user.
Billy Markus, co-founder of Dogecoin, believes that anyone foolish enough to fall for such a hoax deserves to lose their money.
A deepfake is a piece of fabricated media that has been convincingly manipulated to cause someone to do things that did not occur in real life.
Creating high-quality clones necessitates the use of costly computational resources. They are typically generated with the assistance of a generative adversarial network (GAN).
As deepfakes get more complex, there is an urgent need for trustworthy detection technologies that can identify faked material.
