At RigidVid, we are on a mission to protect the truth. We see this new world of data corruption and manipulation as an attack on the very definition of a civilized society.
Today, hackers and people with mal-intent can destroy someone’s character by manipulating videos and making them appear to be real. Creating a deepfake is becoming easy, so easy that mobile apps enable anyone to insert themselves into famous feature film scenes. And since the technology to create deepfakes is 100x more sophisticated than the technologies to detect deepfakes, we live in a world where detection of video fraud may never be possible. This is the edge of the loss of truth.
Why is knowing what is true so important? Truth enables common understanding, learning, and growth. When presented with information that challenges your beliefs, what allows you to ultimately change your beliefs? Certainty that the information is true. It’s how we expand our views of the world and how we find alignment and commonality across communities.
When truth is lost, learning stops. Growth stops. Enforcing the law becomes impossible. Division and divisiveness grow.
The truth is everything. RigidVid protects what is real, what is true. It’s foundational. It’s painless. It’s essential.
