There are already discussions regarding govt technology to overlay anyone's voice on top of a pre-recorded message, once you add in facial expressions.

My opinion is that this could be abused by any government to easily fabricate events that never transpired. With these technologies the government will no longer need look-a-likes to make propaganda videos.

Hm, I didn't think of that use for it. But I think it could be useful in, like the article said, understanding human behavior and emotion more.

Good article! S+F

Wow. Great find OP. S&F (for what it is worth)

I don't see good coming from this technology. I can see exactly what the article points out, that manipulation may occur that neither conversationalist is aware of. Not a good thing. Truth isn't sacred anymore. Technology like this will eliminate the fragile line that separates truth from fiction. But there is no doubt that many someone's will become quite rich using it.
