OK Google, Face to Face and Adobe: the new era of deception.

(Originally posted Nov. 21, 2016)

GOOGLE RECORDS EVERY WORD YOU SAY.

“We know now that Google’s audio recording does not start after you say “Ok Google”, but was active before you said it, suggesting that it’s always active to some degree.”

I’m just not talking about keystrokes or actually getting on Google search. The other day I went to search for something on Google. I noticed the logo wasn’t at the top of the page. Instead there were four colored horizontal bars in its place. I never touched the microphone to talk but then started to type. I noticed that these bars were fluctuating while I talked. Google was listening to me without me ever actually hitting the microphone icon. I did this for two minutes just taking and watching it fluctuate to the sound of my voice like an eq meter. I then said “Google, why are you recording my voice right now”. This is when the first picture came up, Ok Google. What in the world was going on? As soon as I said this they were asking me if I wanted to continue with it. I never gave them permission in the first place. We all know Google has been doing this recording of our voices without our knowledge of it for awhile now. (https://www.google.com/amp/embedded#vgi=14450523674499185634&amp=http%253A%252F%252Ftribune.com.pk%252Fstory%252F1115589%252Fgoogle-records-everything-say-heres-can-delete%252F%253Famp%253D1&ampidx=0)

But its just not when Ok Google is “on”. Its always on, that’s my point. As your eating dinner eighth your family, its recording your voices. (https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/blog/2015/10/so-google-records-all-the-microphone-audio-all-the-time-after-all/) Watching the news complaining about whatever, its recording your voice. Here is where my real problem lies. Is this Google app active all day? Do I not even have to get on Google for it to actually record me? My guess is yes. I’m guessing if you have Google on your phone (which we all do) that it is constantly nonstop recording our conversations and voices without us knowing it. The other day was a perfect example for me. So here is the scariest thing about this. Its not knowing someone is recording your every word, its the fact that someone can take your voice, then rearrange the words into something that you never said. Do you get what I’m saying? How would you like to be framed for something you never said and never did but they have proof you actually said it. Photoshop is a thing of the past, now its voice editing and putting you over the fire. Are you concerned now?

By the way, while writing this and looking for these articles…Google would not let me load any page…at all. Thanks D-Wave.

Could you imagine the damage and deception this Face2face program and the new Adobe voice over speech called VoCo could produce? I had written an op a a month ago on Google OK and how it records you without you knowing it. (https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1034198226689729&id=519754571467433) Now take your voice, have someone manipulate the text and then put it over your image on a video of you taking. But, the only thing is…You never said any of it. Scary right?

Face2Face only needs 15 seconds of you facial expressions on a video in order to manipulate your own face in real-time. VoCo needs 20 minutes of a person’s speech in order to replicate it. (https://www.inverse.com/article/23350-adobe-voco) “When recording voiceovers, dialogue, and narration, wouldn’t you love the option to edit or insert a few words without the hassle of recreating the recording environment or bringing the voiceover artist in for another session? #VoCo allows you to change words in a voiceover simply by typing new words.” (https://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/2016/11/lets-get-experimental-behind-the-adobe-max-sneaks.html?scid=social67703696&adbid=1224267454283252&adbpl=fb&adbpr=341657335877606)

VoCo lets you edit what people say to make them say new things” (http://theusbport.com/adobe-experiments-voco-photoshop-voice-speech/20847)

“If you thought software development reached “peek spookiness” last year when Washington University researchers unveiled their facial-mimicking software that can resurrect dead people and create 3D models of people saying things that came from someone else’s voice — well, you might want to sit down. Adobe has unveiled their new Project VoCo which can replicate anyone’s voice — and even create new original speech — with as little as 20 minutes of a person’s recorded voice.” (http://www.feelguide.com/2016/11/06/r-i-p-age-trustworthy-voice-recordings-new-adobe-software-perfectly-mimics-the-human-voice/)
Zeyu Jin is the guy who made this software. He is also connected to Stanford (this is where face2face was made). Here is a article about him (https://www.fxguide.com/featured/what-sorcery-is-this-adobes-remarkable-new-voco-tool/). 

Here is his thesis from Princeton (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwuUBwTrZu4qRVdHeFJHeXVKUHM/view?usp=drivesdk). 

And here is the paper from face2face (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwuUBwTrZu4qdm5iRlZ5Ymh5cW8/view?usp=drivesdk). 

The op I posted above and here (https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1057639191012299&id=519754571467433) about the the fac2face and VoCo being used for sinister reasons has a few interesting symbols they have used. First you will see the Au symbol for gold used by Adobe. 

Why did they choose this symbol for this voice manipulation? The second is their logo for this program i mentioned. 

To me it looks like a few things. My first thought was a DNA strand. It also looks like a 8 which also represents two strands coming together and it could be two 6’s. Overall, the logo looks like a few things. The third picture is from an article I posted. Notice under the wav file it spells Christ. 

And one last thing. Look at what this article has to say about using it with a Trump picture right below it. 

“But an unfriendly user — for example — could take a politician’s speech, manipulate it into a rabble-rousing tirade, and divide our splintered nation.” (https://www.inverse.com/article/23350-adobe-voco)

Please read all the links after reading the article. It all comes together.

When the subpoena for the Amazon Echo speaker Alexa story came out, the first thought may be, “oh great, that’s an invasion of privacy right there”. It is in fact an invasion of privacy. Here is a story to the Amazon Echo subpoena for murder (http://www.nwahomepage.com/news/knwa/bentonville-police-subpoena-amazon-for-echo-device-to-solve-murder/632526918) And how Amazon Echo can be used to testify against you (http://nymag.com/selectall/2016/12/can-an-amazon-echo-testify-against-you.html). Not only that, a little girl ordered inadvertently on Amazon by taking to it (https://www.google.com/amp/wkbn.com/2017/01/06/niles-woman-claims-tv-made-amazon-echo-place-random-orders/amp/) and a little boy got an earful from Alexa (https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.lifesitenews.com/mobile/news/better-watch-what-you-say-to-amazon-echo-dot-one-toddler-got-an-earful-of-v). But that’s not all, by the end of the year (2017) Alexa will be in 10 during Ford vehicles (https://media.ford.com/content/fordmedia/fna/us/en/news/2017/01/04/alexa-car-ford-amazon-shop-search-home.html, https://www.google.com/amp/www.digitaltrends.com/cars/ford-sync-3-amazon-alexa-ces-2017/amp/

Now think about the movie Minority Report for a second. And what is exactly a Echo? Its “a sound or series of sounds caused by the reflection of sound waves from a surface back to the listener.” This is what Amazon is doing. But the listener is NOT you, it’s someone in the “cloud”. And Alexa means “defender of man”. Remember, 666 is the number of mankind, not a certain man. Maybe she is the defender of the beast instead?
Your Smart TV, phone and a few other things that you encounter everyday are not only listening to you but also watching you (https://www.google.com/amp/www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/ces-2017-smart-homes-amazon-echo-alexa/). Its beyond an invasion of privacy. You might as well take your front door to your house down and let everyone in because now you are in the cloud where everyone can see you. 

And where is this cloud? It’s probably in the heavenly state of Utah where the NSA’s Supercomputer is housed. (https://nsa.gov1.info/utah-data-center/). “The Utah Data Center is powered by the massively parallel Cray XC30 supercomputer which is capable of scaling high performance computing (HPC) workloads of more than 100 petaflops or 100,000 trillion calculations each second. Code-named “Cascade”, this behemoth was developed in conjunction with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to meet the demanding needs of the Intelligence Community.” I am almost positive, just from speculating, that this computer is connected to the D-Wave quantum computers that CERN, Google and other agencies are all connected to this computer in Bluffdale (https://www.wired.com/2012/03/ff_nsadatacenter/all/). And the government didn’t make us take all of this spy technology by force, we paid good money for it and are more than happy to use it (https://falkvinge.net/2017/01/06/government-didnt-install-cameras-microphones-homes/). 

I know for one thing, this is not the cloud I want to be in. I want to be in the Book of Hebrews cloud of witness and to be caught up in the clouds at Jesus’ return. Do you see the two clouds?
But what’s more scary than someone invading your privacy with you letting them and you knowing it? When someone uses your own words against your own self and has you on camera saying something you never said. It’s like Hollywood has made your life a movie for all to watch. Only thing is, you never said those things. Im taking about the face2face technology along with the Adobe speech tech that I wrote about a month ago. So, is this type of technology ethical? (http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/rogue-one-cgi-grand-moff-tarkin-actor-peter-cushing-princess-leia-carrie-fisher-animated-a7483991.html?amp) Carrie Fisher didn’t think so.

She made multiple tweets (https://mobile.twitter.com/carrieffisher) prior to her dying about how she wasn’t happy with this and she was bitter towards the Rogue One director “Gary” (Gareth Edwards) for fronting her off in the media about how she failed at motion capture (https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/rogue-one-cgi-princess-leia-organa-actress-carrie-fisher-ingvild-deila-motion-capture-new-star-wars-a7484161.html%3famp).

She died of a heart attack shortly after (https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/goingoutguide/movies/carrie-fisher-who-played-princess-leia-in-star-wars-dies-at-60/2016/12/27/fbd9e3f0-c980-11e6-bf4b-2c064d32a4bf_story.html, https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/arts-and-entertainment/wp/2016/12/23/carrie-fisher-suffers-heart-attack-on-plane-reports/). 

Now imagine how easy it is with this motion capture (essentialy face2face tech) to “kill” someone off in a movie or tv series then by using this tech, they can virtually live forever? This is virtual transhumanism and could be potentially a trillion dollar industry. Could you imagine if Brad Pitt actually died in real life and kept making movies beyond the grave?  This “meeting” is going on as you read this to if they will use this tech in Episode 9 for Princess Leia (https://www.google.com/amp/www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/carrie-fisher-star-wars-9-cgi-princess-leia-meeting-colin-trevorrow-a7513056.html%3famp, http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/carrie-fisher-episode-viii-how-star-wars-will-handle-leias-future-960849). Im sure they will, it’s all about money $$$$$$.

But this article isn’t about Carrie Fishers death, which raises red flags anyways. It’s about this tech that is being used in Hollywood and can be used real time as we have seen and will eventually be used against us in the future. I want you to look at the pic of Rudy Giuliani’s tweet he had put out (http://archive.is/IDBh5). 

Now there is a question to whether this is a fake account or his real account. By the looks of it, it has all the earmarks of being a real tweet and not photoshopped. He hasn’t come out to say its fake. The one thing everyone focused on was the “Pizza Gate” comments. This is the obvious. He states that if he is on TV saying he never said any of these things than  that its not really him. He talks about a “CGI human-like avatar” that the government can create and has been doing this for 20 years. He even mentions the new Star Wars movie doing this with Carrie Fisher and this is before Fisher died. So, was this tweet real? Why is he mentioning this now if it was really his tweet? I will say this, the whole “Pizza Gate” pedophile ring is an abomination. No doubt about that. But this has been going on for thousands of years, this is not new. I will suggest that this tech and what has been done with and will be done with is far worse. But lets also not forget Google Maps tracking your every move. Google maps keeping track of you.

Go to my articles below and see the problems this tech can cause.

Face2Face technology and Adobe

1st article: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1057639191012299&id=519754571467433

2nd article: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1057777230998495&id=519754571467433

3rd article: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1034198226689729&id=519754571467433

So what does the future have in store for us? Or should I ask, what have we been shown that isn’t real? Could this tech affect you personally in the future? I would say there is a good possibility it could.
