This is terrifying.
Just think about this for a moment. You thow away or lose an old photo of yourself.
The photo is an action shot of you doing something fun like skating, or surfing, or riding your horse.
Someone who has nefarious purposes picks up that photo.
They can take you out of the photo, insert you into an image of something else, perhaps a murder scene.
Now imagine that they have a video of that murder scene, and Photo shop is able to "intelligently extrapolate" edges, and objects from
Snippets of your image could be inserted into these series of images, and you could be shown to be at a crime scene, when in reality you were a
thousand miles away, etc.
Imagine that this technology has been around, at least in prototype form for a couple of years...
Wow.... just wow.
Having said all that, I'd like to get my hands on a copy.
