But what if ordinary dating sites allowed users to see their potential date naked using advanced AI that could “virtually undress” that person? Let’s take it a step further...
"But deepfakes and AI-created content don’t have to be seen as something exclusively negative. Deepfakes of Russian politicians performing unsavory acts could help Democratic societies see the value in fighting for liberty."
So you're saying that deepfakes may prove useful in fabricating propaganda claims.
In other words, lies.
So you think "requiring users to submit images of themselves for facial recognition" to "big tech (with the insistence of government)" is a way to protect people? You're "confident" of that?
Is this satire?
The so-called threat of deepfakes is overblown. No one is going to care about a fake video that supposedly shows you naked. Nor will anyone want to “participate” in an activity with such a thing. It will just be another dumb thing on the internet, like JibJab was a decade ago.
"For online dating, this could ultimately be a win." I suspect that much of the AI deep fakery that you speculate on will actually happen one way or another. But one thing is never going to change - some men and some women are always going to be desirable - in the flesh - to a lot more potential partners than others. So ultimately all this clever AI deep fakery is going to generate a lot more disappointment. https://grahamcunningham.substack.com/p/the-less-desired
I can't believe that you are defending the use of "deepfakes" to demonize an entire country and culture and to justify an imperialistic war, one replete with warcrimes committed by the West and its puppet regime. Goebbels would be proud of you!
you don't need a deepfake or a fake ai version of yourself, you could literally just write a journal or a book about yourself if you want people to get to know you or understand you after death
Fine post. But made me smile: "But what if ordinary dating sites allowed users to see their potential date naked using advanced AI that could “virtually undress” that person?" Well, what if I looked at a full body pic of a dressed woman, I fancy - maybe even on a dating website! - and imagined how she might look undressed? Unheard of in the history of mankind - until clothes were invented, that is.
Let’s take it a step further? Let's! What if a guy fantasised in such a way about a female who is not his wife or legit-gf and then -.. put his hand on unspeakable places of his anatomy.!. . There might still such creeps around, who knows. Would teach him as much about how sex with her would turn out as a sex-robot (unless the robot had her full data, not just looks). Shrug. - I remember an ol' Hollywood movie about an artist who put the face of a woman (he saw once and could not forget) on a nude-painting he had started. When the painting comes to be known to her family/friends, this results in a scandal and her being left by "friends", family and hubby. She ends up with the artist, so it is happy-ending all right. lol Nothing new under the sun. (Anyone knows the name of the movie? Ava Gardner times, but not her.)
