132 | 🌊🥸 Deepfakes + GPT-4 Vision
It’s Friday. Who wants to meet me in Boston on Wednesday, October 18th, and attend the AI Business Leaders Conference from The Institute for Experiential AI at Northeastern University? I have been given 2 passes - 1 for me and 1 for you ($199 value each).
Here is what we will do to find the winner:
First, please be 100% sure you can make it and will use it - (don’t worry, you don’t have to hang out with me all day but cool, if you do).
Second, to make this easy and fun (and completely subjective 🤪), whoever sends me the best somewhat legally related use case for GPT-4 Vision (see it below) wins. Just reply to this email with it.
Third, for those who can’t make it to Boston, I still would love your use case ideas too!
Let’s jump in! 🤿
🌊🥸 Deepfakes: An evidentiary tsunami!
I’ve written and spoken about this before but the rise of deepfakes is going to have a profound impact on courts throughout the world. This week we saw three major deepfake stories.
Whether you are a lawyer or not, this topic will impact you. So, please consider these questions as we will need to have answers for each one very soon (if not now).
How will we establish a reliable and consistent standard to authenticate digital evidence as genuine and not altered by deepfake technology?
Will the introduction of deepfakes shift the traditional burdens of proof or production, especially when digital evidence is introduced?
Will courts require expert witnesses for digital evidence authentication in every case, and what standards will be used to qualify these experts?
Are there existing technological tools or methods to detect deepfakes? (yes there is but it is not 100%) How can courts keep abreast of rapidly advancing technology?
Should current evidentiary rules be modified to address the unique challenges presented by deepfakes, or should new rules be created?
Will we need specialized pre-trial procedures or discovery rules for parties to share or challenge digital evidence suspected to be deepfakes?
How should legal professionals handle the introduction or suspicion of deepfake evidence, and what are the potential penalties for misuse?
How can juries be adequately educated and instructed about the possibility of deepfakes so they can make informed decisions?
As deepfake detection requires sophisticated technology and experts, who will bear these costs? Will it be the courts, litigants, or the state?
Given the global nature of the internet, how will international legal systems cooperate to address the challenges posed by deepfakes?
How can we ensure that judges, lawyers, and court staff receive the necessary training to understand and handle deepfake-related issues?
How will the rise of deepfakes affect public trust in the legal system, especially when verdicts are based on digital evidence?
As deepfake-related cases are decided, how will the legal precedents set by these cases shape the future handling of digital evidence?
Ok, now to 3 deepfake stories from this week:
#1 Mr. Best
If you don’t know who Mr. Beast is you likely are not a YoutTube junky nor have young kids. He is a phenom and the single biggest content creator business there is. His videos don’t just go viral they break the internet. He is a branding/business juggernaut.
Needless to say, by coopting his likeness via deepfake tech, things could get dicey.
Lots of people are getting this deepfake scam ad of me… are social media platforms ready to handle the rise of AI deepfakes? This is a serious problem

#2 Tom Hanks
You likely know Tom Hanks. He had to put out a video disclaiming a deepfake of him that was selling dental plans! Think of the money shady companies can save by not paying for celebrity endorsements and just using deepfakes!
#3 Gayle King of The Today Show
Here is a short segment from Inside Edition that shows the Gayle King deepfake and then goes into Hanks and Robin Williams examples.
🧹 🥸 Okay, fine, one more Deepfake for fun.
How about Tom Cruise giving tips on industrial cleaning?
Wow, this deepfake is unbelievable! 😯😳
