TechCrunch: ByteDance & TikTok have secretly built a deepfakes maker

TechCrunch: ByteDance & TikTok have secretly built a deepfakes maker. “TikTok parent company ByteDance has built technology to let you insert your face into videos starring someone else. TechCrunch has learned that ByteDance has developed an unreleased feature using life-like deepfakes technology that the app’s code refers to as Face Swap. Code in both TikTok and its Chinese sister app Douyin asks users to take a multi-angle biometric scan of their face, then choose from a selection of videos they want to add their face to and share.”
