Maneesh Agrawala, Director of the Brown Institute at Stanford, recently spoke with Russ Altman, host of Stanford Engineering’s The Future of Everything podcast about “How AI is changing video editing”. Agrawala describes the benefits of technology to facilitate the creation of video content as well as the ethical and legal frameworks to address deep fakes.
“Technology is pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in video editing. Society must consider the creative possibilities as well as the misinformation risks. Computer graphics expert Maneesh Agrawala has imagined it and has created a video editing software that can do it, too. Given enough raw video, Agrawala’s application can produce polished, photorealistic video of any person saying virtually anything he types in.”
