It is barely a month since Pedophiles flocked to Patreon to sell life-like child sexual materials generated by AI from Diffusion Stable. Today, we wake up to the sad news of revenge porn in which a woman from Guwahati has to live with the pain of her pictures photoshopped by Artificial intelligence into nudes and sold online. She’s not the only one suffering from the use of these nonconsensual deep fakes, hundreds or thousands of women and children are silently suffering due to the use of these AI art-generated images.
Pornbots can now steal your identity from the social media platforms such as Instagram and generate revenge porn. It will take you a painful process and time to get it deleted! Even worse, everyone who sees it will believe it’s you – the Artificial Intelligence photoshop tools are becoming sophisticated and more difficult to distinguish from reality.
Well, the safety of women is even negotiable in the gym. Many seem not to care enough to provide safe spaces for women.
Sometimes you stop to think, is it wrong to be a woman in the era of AI? Is the future of young girls guaranteed?
Apparently, humans are their worst enemies! Who was not born of a woman? Whether you have certain misgivings about your mom or not, whether you love her or not, the reality is that she brought you to this earth and you owe her!
Is AI Deep Fake Spreading?
Deep Fake has been around for some time now and authorities, as well as, policymakers seem not to take adequate steps to protect those who are vulnerable. Surveys show that in 2018, deep fake streaming sites had only 2,000 videos. In 2022, more than 13,000 deep fake videos with 16 million views every month. The growth remains exponential with the hype in Artificial Intelligence. Unfortunately, 90% of these deep fakes are pornographic materials in which women are featured without consent.
Hellen Mort is one person who suffered due to Artificial Intelligence photoshop. Several naked photos of her were shared online. Nothing could be more humiliating than that! The perpetrator even shared photos of her as a child and asked other users to edit and use her face in pornographic videos. Most of her photos were edited by AI from her old Facebook account which was no longer active.
With the realization, Mort said that “…punished for being a woman with a public voice of any kind. That’s the best way I can describe it. It’s saying, ‘Look: we can always do this to you.’”
NCB also featured Anita who was surprised to find her face used on another person’s body for pornography purposes. “This has obviously been going on for quite a while without my knowledge, I had no idea – it could have been years for all I know.”
Staring at a Big Wave of AI Deep Fakes
Unlike in the past where only celebrities and those with heavy online presence were primary targets, now Artificial Intelligence photoshop and deep fakes are targeting those with minimal online presence. “Now suddenly people who are vulnerable are people who have very small footprints online,” Hany Farid, a Professor at the University of California said in a statement.
While revenge porn is punishable by law, only four states in the US ban nonconsensual deep fakes. However, in most countries such as India, there are no laws to protect women and children from Artificial Intelligence generated images. As a result, criminals and paedophiles take advantage of women.
Ewing in an emotional apology to women whose pictures had been photoshopped and used for pornographic purposes pointed out that “Your names were dragged into it and you were sexualized against your will. I’m sorry that my actions have led to further exploitation of you and your body, and I’m sorry your experience is not uncommon.”
Every time you sign up for a deep fake ad whether for porn or not, just know you’re hurting a woman or a child with no idea their pictures are used for such purposes. It’s our wish at Instamart.ai that every responsible act be a service to humanity. Let’s desist from hurting our sisters, mothers, wives, and fellow women.
