A Redditor has successfully created an AI that stitches celebrities’ faces to women’s bodies in adult videos.
‘deepfakes’, who prefers to keep his identity anonymous, told Motherboard that he uses open-source code and easily obtainable materials to train the algorithm.
To ensure the celebrities’ faces move more realistically, ‘deepfakes’ feeds the machine with resources from Google image search, YouTube videos, and stock photos.
“I just found a clever way to do face-swap. With hundreds of face images, I can easily generate millions of distorted images to train the network.”
Motherboard assures that the detail isn’t all that convincing if you stare closely. However, the results spell a possibly terrifying future for revenge porn.
To date, the Redditor has remixed videos to feature Gal Gadot, Emma Watson, Scarlett Johansson, Maisie Williams and Aubrey Plaza. Watch a sample of ‘Gal Gadot’ in the short clip below.
