Another user wrote, "This technology is getting scary by the day , deep fakes are getting perfect , we have also now ai that can create practically perfect copies of famous people voices, very soon we won't be able to trust our eyes or hears anymore because everything fake will as be as realistic as the real thing."
"Too funny! But also too good, I actually do think it would be good to put a little watermark that indicates it's a generated image mostly because people take photos from others all the time and re-post them without the original descriptions or context. Of course people can also remove watermarks but the majority of folks won't go through that effort and just want to have something to show on their social media."
"These are so fun!!! love it! with a tiny bit of faceapp a few of these might pass 99% of the public's sniff test if they weren't so hilarious," the fourth user expressed.
