"Amazing," Trump Jr. captioned it. "I guess there is a magic wand to make things happen and @realdonaldtrump seems to have it."

Of course, Nic Cage never appeared in any of those movies. They're "deepfakes" produced with FakeApp, an application that uses artificial intelligence algorithms to swap faces in videos. Some of the deepfakes look quite convincing, while others have artifacts that betray their true nature. But overall, they show how powerful AI algorithms have become in imitating human appearance and behavior.
