In a dank corner of the internet, it is possible to find actresses from Game of Thrones or  Harry Potter  engaged in all manner of sex acts. Or at least to the world the carnal figures look like those actresses, and the faces in the videos are indeed their own. Everything south of the neck, however, belongs to different women. An artificial intelligence has almost seamlessly stitched the familiar visages into pornographic scenes, one face swapped for another. The genre is one of the cruelest, most invasive forms of identity theft invented in the internet era. At the core of the cruelty is the acuity of the technology: A casual observer can’t easily detect the hoax.

But Face-swap porn is just one example of what is coming to be.

Back when digital photography came into being I told my brother, it will be possible to alter or manipulate photographs so that they are what they aren't.
