Anyone here listen to Radio Lab? Their last two episodes - Breaking News and Truth Warriors - expose some of this. Breaking News is about video and voice manipulation, sort of like Hu Parkinson on ABC, only his is better. The idea is to provide believable avatars to represent public figures.

The main, point with regard to Google, though, is that the research person developing some of the stuff didn't even understand the question about ethics and creating falsifiable communications and how dangerous it could be. She literally didn't. It was mind-boggling.
