Welcome to the TED reddit - dedicated to spreading, discussing and implementing the ideas espoused by the worldwide TED conferences.
We've all been grabbed by one of the incredible talks available at TED. Why not post a link here and start a discussion about how it changed you.
Although it's redditor-created and -moderated, TED staff are not only reading this reddit, but are happy to step out from behind the proverbial bar, grab a beer, and join in interesting conversation. And they can also go back behind said bar to give official, canonical replies to questions or concerns about TED :)
People can talk about anything -- not strictly about TED stuff. This is a place for "TED people," not solely "about TED".
All are welcome, blogspam discouraged.
I want to create a Deepfake (audio and visual) in 5-8 minutes cheaply, and then demonstrate it live on stage. How feasible is this?
Hi Reddit, I’m Friendly_Newfie, and I’m preparing to make a TEDx Talk on Deepfakes. The talk will (pending approval) be in a University with many academics present. My talk will cover where we are now with this technology, referencing previous talks from Tom Graham and Holly Herndon (links below). I want to emphasize that the technology is accessible, that there are positive use cases for this technology, and we need to begin accommodating it in our society (referencing the podcast Sleepwalkers - Truth to Power, link also below).
My idea of showing that the technology is accessible: I want to “create” a Deepfake (video and audio media manipulation) in the duration of the Talk (5-8 minutes). I understand the enhanced performance has already been demonstrated as being possible (seamless live audio and visual Deepfake demonstration during previous TED Talks).
Cheers to ChatGBT for helping me understand what’s necessary to make a Deepfake! I envision one/ multiple DSLR cameras on the stage capturing the necessary images for training the model. Those captured images would be processed live on a computer just off stage, which would then nearing the end of the Talk, successfully demonstrate that Deepfake technology is here, and accessible by the general public (ie avoiding me having to pay $$$ for off site processing power to rapidly create the short video).
I have an old DSLR camera, could source a standing tripod, and an okay PC (Windows 11, i7, 3060 graphics card, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 500GB SSD).
Please help me brainstorm if it's feasible? Point of logistics I should take into consideration, potential Paint points you've encountered in the past with creating Deepfakes, alternative routes to choose, etc.

When I was in the Army, I saw a Ted talk that stuck with me for years, even though I only saw it once. I would love to find it again and would appreciate any help the community can provide!
I watched this talk around May of 2016. Speaker was male. This may be a Ted or a TedX talk.
The thing that has stuck with me over the years is that the speaker hit on three areas that he believed were vital to success or fulfillment: passion, ability, and impact.
It was maybe categorized as some kind of career development or self-development sort of talk.
Google and the TedX YouTube yield no match to keyword search, so I’m turning to the experts!
It wasn’t the one by Dan Pink.
If you are able to help, I would greatly appreciate it!
I delivered this TEDx Tarrytown talk in 2016. I think it's held up pretty well. I hope you'll agree. https://youtube.com/watch?v=FEm5c66Nylc&feature=share
