detecting fake videos

This is probably some of the worst news I have heard in a long time.

I always thought one of the only good things that came out of technology was the ability to record historic evidence. Especially in the scientific area where we need to show people the impacts of climate change. But as the ability to detect fake images and videos becomes harder, people will question glaciers melting, or rape and brutality and traffic accidents and everything else. If we thought the lies and alternative reality facts coming out of the government were bad, this could only be the begining. Another step forward in cyber and technological warfare.

Even if we still can detect fakes, the technology is out of the reach of the average person so the average person will just not trust or believe anything. We already are moving deeply into a world where no one trusts anyone thanks to "fake news."
