AI – Deepfake, DeepNude apps Beware: First Federal state punishes Fake Porn

Ai generated images using Deepfake, DeepNude apps need to be careful. As we know one can manipulate photos and videos using AI via DeepFake and DeepNude apps available online.

The results achieved from it are so close to the real thing you are not able to judge the real from the fake.

Already there has been an argument going on and now the first US state has criminalized Deepfake pornography.

According to CNET, the state of Virginia has criminalized putting a person in Deepfake porn without their consent.

The state has amended a law which now states – Anyone who fakes nude pictures or sex scenes in order to “exercise compulsion to harass or intimidate someone” makes himself liable to prosecution.

Earlier in March the local policy already initiated the amendment and the new regulations are imposed since Monday.

Watch the harmless video which goes to show the possibilities of Deepfakes where the netizens swap the new one for the old Han Solo:

It has become very easy to manipulate images using Artificial Intelligence, you simply need to input a large set of photos of someone you want to be included in the sex films. This can result in creating a lot of fake videos from a single photo. Last week there has been a real buzz around an infamous DeepNude app that allowed you to feed any photo of a female and managed to generate nude photos of it. Thankfully the app has been shut down by the developers.

Many cybersecurity researchers feel this could lead to a new form of cyberbullying. Where anyone with a smartphone and a photo of a person can potentially generate compromising clips at the touch of a button. The apps help to break the technological barriers and makes it easy to create counterfeit images easily.

According to Richard Werner of the Japanese IT security provider Trend Micro – “To incorporate the face and the facial expressions of a person into a video is not a question of technical ability, but only a matter of will.”
