This year's opening MIT Introduction to Deep Learning (6.S191) lecture featured a recorded welcome from former President Barack Obama. The video was quickly revealed to be an AI-generated fabrication, one of many twists that Alexander Amini ’17 and Ava Soleimany ’16 introduce throughout their for-credit course to make the equations and code come alive.

DISCLAIMER: The following video is synthetic and was created using deep learning with simultaneous speech-to-speech translation as well as video dialogue replacement (CannyAI).
