Deepfake Zuckerberg videotests Facebook's policies

MENLO PARK, CALIFORNIA — A deepfake video of Mark Zuckerberg giving a Black Mirror-like speech was posted to Facebook-owned Instagram.

The video portrays Zuckerberg sitting at a desk addressing his public in a very ominous manner.

The video falsely shows him saying, "Imagine this for a second: One man, with total control of billions of people's stolen data, all their secrets, their lives, their futures...I owe it all to Spectre.

Spectre showed me that whoever controls the data, controls the future." Vice reported that a spokesperson for Instagram said it will not be removing the video, instead, it will be following the same policy Facebook applied to a doctored video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Facebook previously refused to take down a viral faked video of Pelosi, looking smashed out of her head.

This move has somewhat forced Facebook's hand to maintain the same level of standards for the Zuckerberg video.

The video, made by artists Bill Posters and Daniel Howe in collaboration with the advertising company Canny, used footage from a real video back in September 2017 that saw Zuckerberg address Russian election interference on Facebook.

According to CNN, the Pelosi video was not a deep fake, as it was made using traditional video editing techniques, unlike the Zuckerberg video that used sophisticated AI that manipulated the CEO's face to make it look as if he said something he didn't.

Zuckerberg's voice is replaced with an actor's.

According to the Washington Post, Zuckerberg has tried to contact Speaker Pelosi to explain how his company handles misinformation, so far, Pelosi hasn't returned his calls.
