While terrifying fake videos are nothing new, what the computer geeks in Moscow have managed to do it create them using only one image.
Previously, researchers would take multiple pictures of a celeb before “mapping” them onto the moving features of another person to create the so-called ‘DeepFake’ in a technique known as "puppeteering".
