Let’s face it, pretty much every use that people have found for the complex AI behind Deepfakes has been quite creepy. Whether you look at the DeepNude AI App or FakeApp, applications of this rather revolutionary artificial intelligence system has not been all that morally sound. However, just because of the fact that some people have been using Deepfakes in a manner that is not entirely above board doesn’t mean that the technology itself is somehow bad for society. Indeed, recent innovations have proven that Deepfakes AI can actually be used for some pretty positive purposes as well.
The tech that govern Deepfakes and other such programs are basically deep learning algorithms that are designed to detect patterns and potentially mimic them. It is in the detection of patterns that deep learning algorithms can provide their true usefulness. You can train these algorithms to do a lot of things, and there are a lot of problems in the world that require highly advanced pattern recognition.
One of the latest positive uses for deep learning technology which proves that it’s not all bad has to do with healthcare. Basically these algorithms can be used to detect anomalies in Xrays and MRIs, and when used on the results of a CT scan deep learning neural networks can potentially even detect cancer going so far as to potentially even pinpoint which type of cancer the patient has at any given point in time.
This is just one of the many ways in which deep learning technology can be used for the betterment of humanity, although the negative uses definitely need to be restricted and regulated.
