Jordan Peele produced the video, which uses artificial intelligence, with Buzzfeed to warn about the future of fake news.
In 2017 a paper was submitted by SUPASORN SUWAJANAKORN, STEVEN M. SEITZ, and IRA KEMELMACHER-SHLIZERMAN in University of Washington. It was “Synthesizing Obama: Learning Lip Sync from Audio”
Given audio of President Barack Obama, we synthesize a high quality video of him speaking with accurate lip sync, composited into a target video clip. Trained on many hours of his weekly address footage, a recurrent neural network learns the mapping from raw audio features to mouth shapes. Given the mouth shape at each time instant, we synthesize high quality mouth texture, and composite it with proper 3D pose matching to change what he appears to be saying in a target video to match the input audio track
