075: What Happens in a World of Perfectly Fakeable Audio and Video?
Impressive demos promise that new technologies will democratize the kind of high-end audio and video fakery we usually associate only with blockbuster films. In this episode Jon and Ted extrapolate on that idea: what happens when many things can be faked, and everyone knows it? We discuss previous eras of forgery and modern forensics, posit an arms race to fake and spot fakes, and talk about the very real dangers of even momentarily misleading a diplomat or military officer -- but also how much fun this ability will be for comedians and satirists. Finally we imagine how much better Nigerian Prince scams are going to get.

Among my favourite podcasts!
An interesting take on how technology will change the future. The 2 presenters are intelligent in their views, hard working (you can see they do research) and entertaining. Along with Planet Money, this is my favourite podcast.
Nothing more interesting than knowing how the future will be disrupted by technology!!
