Zao's Deepfake app can make you a famous movie hero......

Deepfake - a face-swapping or synthesized algorithm for mimicking videos - is often discussed as a dystopian tool that gives most anyone on the Internet a chance to put words in one's mouth or offend someone's face. Lets put it in the situation. Fortunately, deepfake are easy to find at the moment, and thus not too risky in the grand scheme of things. Instead, they can be fun if you use Deepfake correctly. The recently released Chinese Android and iOS app ZAO allows almost anyone to insert themselves into the scenes of a famous movie, with nothing more than at least one photo. Previously with Facepack, privacy concerns quickly emerged.

In case you haven't heard, is a Chinese app which completely blew up since Friday. Best application of 'Deepfake'-style AI facial replacement I've ever seen.

ZAO's workflow is quite simple: you take a selfie, which is used to change the face of an actor in a selection of well-known films and series. Your face even mimics the spirit of the original artist, though it sometimes looks like a frightening mask. As you can see in the tweet below, the results are still very effective for counting images within a few seconds for a freely available service.

If you want to try the app for yourself, you won't find it in the Play Store, as it is mainly sold in China. It's only available for sideloading through Huawei's App Gallery or Oppo and Vivo stores. However, with privacy issues in mind, you can prevent this from happening.
