In A Blink Of An Eye, Can You Trust What You See?

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

Please watch the following link I underscored below to get my point across by referencing it called "seeing is believing". There is a saying that most of us heard in our lifetime called seeing is believing. But dare I say, technology has changed before our very eyes. Can you honestly trust what you are seeing? To be fair, you must watch from the beginning to the end for the answer.

After watching  the entire commercial filmed in France, really called "orange - la copil des bleues (English version," tell me if you can trust what your eyes are seeing that was shared by my loved one last night? After you watch it, let me know if you were fooled like I was. What I shared is an excellent example of Artificial Intelligence and how it can be used to see the world from a completely different perspective. 

If you watched what I called "seeing is believing" really a commercial in France called "orange - la compil des bleues (English version) and was fooled, let me know! This is an example of what Artificial Intelligence can do. Hint. what appears to be amazing male soccer players wasn't what you saw at all. They were really a professional female soccer team.   

After watching "orange - la compil des bleues (English version), how would you answer these questions? 

  • If you were doing business on-line with someone you never did business with before, could you trust who you saw or were seeing (perhaps via ZOOM), and is the person and/or people you are communicating with really who they are?

  • If you were an eyewitness to a crime, how would you know if the potential criminal was really the person you described?  

  • Could you accurately bet on the right winning sports team if you weren't there in person or know who the members were?

  • How accurate are you when it comes to telling the truth?

  • From the soccer game example, do you know the difference between a male and a female?

  • If a loved one was in danger and you received a video of them, could you positively identify your loved one if AI was behind the screen?

  • After completing or reading the previous challenge presented by Kat Palmiotti from your new perspective, would your entry change?

  • Positive or negative, can you trust being open-minded about the future? 

  • How much do you want to bet this post will not be featured for everyone to have a chance to read and comment on this post?

Endre Barath, Jr. - Somethings gotta give! All I see is false worship over who is better designed by misperception. So, when it comes to morality and ethics, what is the soul of the nation?

Yes Patricia, In today's world, skepticism has become a natural response because of unscrupulous individuals, making it challenging to trust anything without firsthand examination.

The reality of things rarely makes it to video these days, people are really good at editing before sharing, haha.

Brian England - were you suprised about the video when you got to the end? It was a shocker.

Yes, it was shocking but I have seen similar examples previously so I wasn't all that surprised.

I wonder if there is an easy and practical way to recognize if a video has been manipulated, or if it is an original recording.

Good morning, Patricia... I've never been a fan of videos... now I'm convinced I don't need to work on that issue. Great post.

Nina Hollander, Broker - Artificial intelligence has taken video to a completely new level. By the time I got to the end of this video, I was in complete shock. Were you?

Jul 23, 2023 06:46 AM
Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Nina Hollander, Broker - it is only shaky in the beginning. The ending shows you exactly how it was manipulated. I hope you find the time to go back and see it in its entirety to fully understand how artificial intelligence is about to change the future. Seriously, it is worth watching even if you don't like soccer. It's not about soccer. It is about integrity.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP this video just made me googly-eyed. I couldn't stand watching it for the full two minutes or so. Plus, I hate soccer.

Hello Patricia - I saw this post as it hit the blog roll yesterday but it wasn't accessible for me.  That "confused" me a bit because by the time I saw it, there were quite a few comments.  

Today, the video played.  Maybe because of the frustration of yesterday and reading the comments, I wasn't that surprised by the "reveal" after the final score. 

Marketing may be described as many things and in multiple ways.  Caveats of all kinds too.  Perhaps shifting of perspectives.  Maybe something more.   Thoughts continue - I did find your post, the video and the comments interesting.  And again, on many levels.

Hi Patricia:

As AI and the use of deep fake technology continue to evolve and become more sophisticated and widespread, you have to wonder if viewers of videos, and listeners (e.g., AI-generated phone calls), will become un-trusting of everything they see, hear and read, even when it actually is real and true?

The possible ways people can be scammed will only increase with the allure of using AI to manipulate by unscrupulous individuals. The answer to the question in your title will increasingly be NO!

Michael Jacobs - Thank you for your efforts to come back a second time. I'm happy to hear the second time around was successful for you. When it comes to marketing, before some people have a chance to try out the next new thing, someone else already figured out something new and different. AI is definitely different on so many levels. When it comes to business, there are certain standards and ethics that licensed real estate agents and Brokers must abide by. Yet to my knowledge there are no standards of business practice for those involved in AI that can upset the agents apple cart and fool the public. Consumers need to know WYSIWYG is no longer true in artificial intelligence. When it comes to intelligence, we are all being challenged and tested. 

Thank you for not giving up on me and I am glad you were able to watch the link.

Jeff Dowler, CRS - I always enjoy learning from your perspective in this business. When it comes to "AI and the use of deep fake technology," the scales have been tipped. Credibility, integrity, morality, sensitivity, truth, and honesty will be tested. How could justice be served if they appear invisible but clearly visible to the naked eye? And how many children raised on their fake technology will be tricked and not even know the difference between what is real and what is not real? 

Everyone should read and memorize your last paragraph. Our challenges are only just beginning.

Good morning.

This is indeed a scary example of how AI could be used to trick us. Being able to replace one person with another could make all sorts of things more difficult. And could make all sorts of things possible. Want to break up a couple so you could date one of them? Send a fake video of them with someone else. Or as mentioned in the comments above, send a video and/or just audio message from someone they know asking for money. Very concerning.

Kat Palmiotti - Those are all scary thoughts, many which ran through my mind too. The possibilities are frighening with severe consequences. I would much rather see control methods on AI instead of our Constitutional rights.
