Question 1: Is it being nice?
Question 2: Are you a boom mic operator accidentally getting in the shot?

LOL, this is going to be a huge problem in a couple years when it's perfected.

Yeah this is the boss. I've decided instead of a meeting, everyone take a free paid day off instead. Starting now.

I mean... "introduce a new element on the speaker's end that exceeds the processing capacity typically accessible to common deepfake systems" is a security measure, but it's not really a sustainable one since access to processing power historically goes up exponentially with time.  Investing the year of development and millions of dollars into turning this into a standard security feature is just going to end up with you having developed a product that no longer works because deepfakes can now keep up with rapidly-shifting ambient lighting now just from an average computer having more cycles available for it.

I mean... I guess I'm glad that someone is working on this kind of authentication to counter actual fraudulent uses of this technology, but anyone who isn't just, y'know, multi-factoring any major decisions made over video call in the first place basically deserves what they get, honestly.

I get violently angry at bad audio, and I did air traffic control, so I don't touch Zoom streaming. I have a Zoom microphone that's a work of art that has nothing to do with the streaming video service.

See if it gets mad when you ask what year they graduated from the shatner school of overacting.

Or just have them turn their head and gauge how farkin' weird it looks...or sure special lighting patterns that you have no control over why not.
