Deepfake porn could be a growing problem amid AI race
By HALELUYA HADERO

NEW YORK (AP) — Artificial intelligence imaging can be used to create art, try on clothes in virtual fitting rooms or help design advertising campaigns.

But experts fear the darker side of the easily accessible tools could worsen something that primarily harms women: nonconsensual deepfake pornography.

Deepfakes are videos and images that have been digitally created or altered with artificial intelligence or machine learning. Porn created using the technology first began spreading across the internet several years ago when a Reddit user shared clips that placed the faces of female celebrities on the shoulders of porn actors.

Since then, deepfake creators have disseminated similar videos and images targeting online influencers, journalists and others with a public profile. Thousands of videos exist across a plethora of websites. And some have been offering users the opportunity to create their own images — essentially allowing anyone to turn whoever they wish into sexual fantasies without their consent, or use the technology to harm former partners.

The problem, experts say, grew as it became easier to make sophisticated and visually compelling deepfakes. And they say it could get worse with the development of generative AI tools that are trained on billions of images from the internet and spit out novel content using existing data.

"The reality is that the technology will continue to proliferate, will continue to develop and will continue to become sort of as easy as pushing the button," said Adam Dodge, the founder of EndTAB, a group that provides trainings on technology-enabled abuse. "And as long as that happens, people will undoubtedly ... continue to misuse that technology to harm others, primarily through online sexual violence, deepfake pornography and fake nude images."

Much of the article is about the impotent efforts to curb abuses. Most all the abused platforms are based on open-source projects, meaning the functional parts are freely available for download and abuse. The AI would need to be trained, tweaked, and polished a little, but not outside what's taught in college classes. Restricting use of existing online tools, will only encourage pervs to build their own, more purpose-oriented tools. Probably better than what's already available. Not to mention the most disgusting, depraved porn imaginable. Stuff that would never actually exist. Pervs will only see it as a challenge, or competition. Not to mention a potential market for custom porn.

Eventually, when the technology becomes essentially flawless, some slimeball who is making a huge amount of money fabricating videos of others, is going to get sued by those others claiming that it really is them in those videos and that they never gave permission for commercial use, and they will take all the money.

yeah, good luck finding a judge and jury, that doesn't surf porn... Think it'll be something new in court. There are people that impersonate famous people, and don't need the person's blessing, unless they use the name, or leave off the part of being an impersonator. Think anyone releasing a fake, intended to do harm, is going to avoid leaving a trail.
