  1. The fidelity of fake voice + video will increase to the point that humans will not be able to discern the difference between authentic and real. We are getting much closer. The algorithms are making leaps forward at an accelerating pace to forge the interactive identity of someone else.
  2. The ability to create such fakes in real-time will allow complete interaction between a masquerading attacker and the victims. If holding a conversation becomes possible across broadly available devices, like smartphones, then we would have an effective tool on a massive scale for potential misuse.
