AI-Assisted Fake Porn Is Here and We’re All Fucked

quote [ Someone used an algorithm to paste the face of 'Wonder Woman' star Gal Gadot onto a porn video, and the implications are terrifying. ]

I don't know how I missed this, but I knew it was just a matter of time before it happened. One of the reasons I got into neural networks was when I was researching predictive algorithms and I realised they could be used to produce content. In the world of ones and zeros there's an almost infinite realm of unseen content waiting to be pumped out by algorithmic producers. Anything audio or video you can imagine, in any style you can imagine, it's just a matter of the tech getting there. And we're almost there. Shit's getting cray cray.

So... pretty much porn and JibJab are the markets for this?

Well the tech is also out there manufacturing voice as well. Adobe Voco And this isn't the first time I've seen face swapping, but it is the first time I've seen an app released for it at this level.

I'm looking forward to the inevitable Beatles reunion.

You may not like their cover of Despacito though.

Yeah, or you know, faked "leaked" videos from politicians that decide the fate of nations.

I can finally wank off to me having sex with me and me and me.

The circle has been completed.

For a lowkeysoft project I was thinking of maybe replacing the main actor in old public domain movies as myself. See if they still have they same feel to it.

If your clone is jacking you off and choking you, is it still technically auto-erotic asphyxiation??

Also, I think it might be rather entertaining to put porn stars into regular movies. Riley whatshername into Star Wars or something. :D

The model data for Peter Cushing is already loaded up and waiting.

Samples converted to GIFS:

As with Photoshop-fakes, you’ll see more bad than good. The celeb has to have a unique and easily-identifiable face, and the porn model has to have a similar body style. Very few of these samples pass those most basic tests. The qualified artists are not going to spend their time on this stuff for free.

This Kristen Bell is one of the few that work for me:

Yeah I've been running through those threads. There's a lot of interesting info in the comments regarding Neural Net hyperparameters. It's really crazy because it's basically just crowdsourcing a problem, but because it's porn based there's a shitload more people involved and advancements are happening much faster than I would expect. If we could just figure out a way to give all our major AI problems a porn based front-end we'd push ourselves decades ahead of schedule.... LOL, The singularity is going to look like Emma Watson, isn't it? :D

This one is really fascinating: a video game model (Triss from Witcher 3) mapped on to a real human.

A friend of mine used to make a good living doing this manually for a VFX house in LA back in the 90s, painstakingly, digitally sticking Tom Cruise's, Arnold Schwarzenegger's and other action hero types faces onto their stunt body doubles. Now your phone can do it in real time.

Shit is going to get seriously chaotic when this shit becomes a snapchat filter. May fuck with people's heads too if its responsive enough.

that's just what they *want* you to think! "no that's not me in that sex tape, it's uh.. AI face swapping! yeah, Science!"

Revenge porn is gonna get a lot worse.

Yes, but maybe better once we can get past the learning curve to where no one trusts porn videos as being legit anymore. Either way, as a society, we're clearly not ready for what's coming. In regards to both our prude-ish nature and our complete lack of understanding of how information works, where machine learning is at, and what's coming.

This is the foundation for complete and total IP post-scarcity; AI librarians to the Library of Babel.

But now there will be plausible deniability.

Take your sextape, put someone else's face on it, leak it before the original gets leaked, now you can point to that as the source some horrible person used to make a fake sextape of you.
