Adobe Sensei Project Morpheus
Released: October 2021
Adobe has unveiled Project Morpheus, a prototype video version of the Neural Filters machine learning-based image-editing tools that the company released as part of Photoshop 22.0.
Like Neural Filters, Morpheus enables users to alter someone's age and facial expressions, whilst adding the ability to change facial hair and glasses.
The software raises concerns about the ease with which lifelike deepfake videos could be created to malign, undermine or otherwise damage the interests or reputation of an individual, group or society - a possibility Adobe confirmed to The Verge that it is aware of.
In Adobe's promotional video, project Morpheus software developer Han Gao states that Morpheus is an experiment, and may not end up as part of Photoshop or another Adobe product.
Purpose: Manipulate video
Technology: Deepfake - video; Generative adversarial network (GAN); Neural network; Deep learning; Machine learning
