Frightening new AI tool used to make fake celebrity porn videos with ‘Wonder Woman’ star Gal Gadot
They also come after a long-standing backlash from human content creators and porn stars who say artificially generated images and video will harm their income. The same app removed by Google and Apple had run ads on Meta’s platform, which includes Facebook, Instagram and Messenger. Meta spokesperson Dani Lever said in a statement the company’s policy restricts both AI-generated and non-AI adult content and it has restricted the app’s page from advertising on its platforms. Twitch already prohibited explicit deepfakes, but now showing a glimpse of such content — even if it’s intended to express outrage — “will be removed and will result in an enforcement,” the company wrote in a blog post. And intentionally promoting, creating or sharing the material is grounds for an instant ban.
The Online Safety Bill is shortly due to be amended to make the sharing of intimate images without consent an offence. This will provide for some legal redress for victims of deepfake pornography, however it does not solve the issue of images being made and those still existing on the internet. However, as AI technology improves, it will become harder to detect discrepancies between real and fake content online. For this reason, the most important way to spot deepfakes and avoid misinformation is to fact-check and question the reliability of the sources sharing the images or videos. In February, Meta, as well as adult sites like OnlyFans and Pornhub, began participating in an online tool, called Take It Down, that allows teens to report explicit images and videos of themselves from the internet. The reporting site works for regular images, and AI-generated content — which has become a growing concern for child safety groups.
Online Safety Bill to clamp down on revenge porn
Telegram did not answer questions about the bot and the abusive images it produces. Sensity’s report also says the company did not respond when it reported the bot and channels several months ago. One of its three bullet points says that people should not “post illegal pornographic content on publicly viewable Telegram channels, bots, etc”. The news comes amid growing calls for laws against deepfake technology following a porn scandal that rocked the world of young, online Twitch influencers. Its chief executive, Susie Hargreaves, said the organisation had yet to see any deepfake abuse images of children. It comes as MailOnline can today reveal how predators are starting to experiment with ‘deepfake’ software to paste the faces of real children onto the naked bodies of computer-generated characters.
- Part of the problem is that deepfakes provide an avenue for people to dismiss real content as fake.
- A good way of gauging if something has been written out of sensationalism of genuine concern is by checking throughout the piece to see if it signposts any ways you can actually help.
- The rapid evolution of deepfakes and adjacent AI technology means that legal regulatory frameworks across the world have struggled to keep up.
- Business and marketing news doesn’t have to be boring…make your mornings more enjoyable, for free.
- These models can then generate highly realistic and convincing counterfeit media of that person, often superimposing their face onto someone else’s body or altering their speech or appearance.

Edge AI is also lower latency since all processing happens locally; this makes a critical difference for time-sensitive applications like autonomous vehicles or voice assistants. It is more energy- and cost-efficient, an increasingly important consideration as the computational and economic costs of machine learning balloon. And it enables AI algorithms to run autonomously without the need for an Internet connection. Naturally, there are myriad potential commercial uses of the technology. No doubt it is only a matter of time before Snapchat offers a drop down menu of filters which transform users’ faces into those belonging to colleagues or friends of their choice.
When he isn’t learning exploring new developments in AI image creation, he’s out snapping wildlife with a Canon EOS R5 or dancing tango. Stock imagery may be one of the first areas to feel the impact of AI-generated ‘photos’. There’s no need for model release forms when the human beings aren’t real, so some think AI-generated images could take off in lifestyle stock imagery, which could see ‘prompt engineers’ competing with photographers in the sector.

A process known as inpainting allows parts of a composition to be removed and replaced by new visuals created by AI. The government also aims to bring forward a broader package of offences that will address both taking and sharing intimate images, as originally recommended by the Law Commission, when Parliamentary time allows. The objective of the Online Safety Bill is, above all, to protect children from dangerous content online. This includes material such as pornography, content encouraging or promoting suicide, self-harm or eating disorders, content depicting or encouraging serious violence, or cyberbullying. A government amendment will put the categories of ‘primary priority’ and ‘priority’ content that is harmful to children on the face of the Bill.
It should be a sexual offence to distribute sexual images online without consent, reflecting the severity of the impact on people’s lives,” Miller said. If deep fakes do emerge in time to play a part in the midterms, however, Donald Trump may not mind. Because there is a flipside to the damage that fake video and audio can do to honourable politicians. Once the technology is out there, those in power caught doing something they wished they hadn’t will simply be able to dismiss hitherto indisputable video or audio evidence of their misdeeds as faked – even if it is true. Anti-Porn is an automatic content filter software to protect your kids from pornographic web sites. In addition, the program can also filter chat conversations when offensive language is used and limit internet access based on specified usage times.
Deep Fake Neighbour Wars is a newly-released ITV comedy featuring AI-generated approximations of household names including Adele, Stormzy and Kim Kardashian living in suburbia. Although the programme goes to great lengths to remind viewers its scenarios are entirely fabricated, it highlights how easy it is becoming to generate clips that can easily be stripped of that context. A Forbes article says that generative AI is likely to pose a risk to data privacy, as chatbots gather people’s personal data, which might be shared with third parties. If an AI tool uses algorithms that make it more likely to find or give weight to certain data sources rather than others, the content could have a narrow perspective. These biased views – including sexist, racist, or ableist – could affect the way people think. Some famous examples of deepfakes include the photos of Donald Trump being arrested and Pope Francis wearing a puffer jacket.
The extracted image descriptors are then fed into a deep learning-based classifier to conduct detection. The limit to these methods is a lack of forged image frames for training. Agarwal and Varshney  proposed using GAN genrative ai to generate synthetic forged image frames, which mitigates the issue and greatly improves detection accuracy. As we pointed out, the unveiled threat of deepfakes is primarily focused on violating personal identity.
The open-source versions of the DeepNude code on GitHub exist despite the organisation previously removing them. After the DeepNude app first appeared in July 2019, GitHub said it violated its “acceptable use policy” and removed some of the files. When asked about the DeepNude files still on its platform, a GitHub spokesperson says it does not moderate user uploaded content unless it receives complaints.
