Deep Fake video is where the facial expression, speech of the person shown in the video aren't real and is computer generated using Machine Learning. Though the generation of deep fake videos fairly simple with right ML tools and setup, it is not yet available as a commercial grade software; though it may change soon.
There's lot of controversy surrounding deep fake videos for right reasons, as it could accelerate the Fake News/ Misinformation problem, but this need gap is for the ethical usage of deep fake (needs better name?) videos.
