Even a Teenager Can Use Artificial Intelligence to Create Deep-Fake Celebrity Porn: What are the Implications?

The Next Web (TNW) published a revealing and disturbing story about a precocious teenager that produces celebrity porn using artificial intelligence and computer graphic images. And it’s not just any porn. So far the 14-year-old creator has produced videos of Gal Gadot (now deleted), Maisie Williams, Taylor Swift, Aubrey Plaza, Emma Watson and Scarlett Johansson.

The process is described succinctly in the TNW article:

With help from a face swap algorithm of his own creation, Reddit user “deepfakes” tapped easily accessible materials and open-source code that anyone with a working knowledge of machine learning could use to create serviceable fakes.

After training the algorithm — mostly with YouTube clips and results from Google Images — the AI goes to work arranging the pieces on the fly to create a convincing video with the preferred likeness. That could be a celebrity, co-worker, or some random person you found on Instagram. Since the algorithm is mostly an amalgamation of widely available parts like TensorFlow and Keras, it doesn’t take a mad scientist to figure out how to glue together the pieces.

AI researcher Alex Champandard told Motherboard that any decent consumer-grade graphics card could produce these effects in hours. For the cash-strapped, a CPU would work, but it’ll take a few days.

If a teenager can create fake porn using A.I., then it’s not a stretch that the Crime Syndicate has at its disposal more advanced technology that could be used to create other fake events.

In my second podcast with John Friend, the question of crisis actors came up about the terror and mad-shooter and driver “events.” A listener had challenged John about the plausibility of using such actors on a large scale. I answered that they don’t. They use grainy concealed-looking computer graphic images (CGI or AI). Actors are used for interviews and enhancement. Just a conspiracy theory? That’s right, laugh it up, suckers. The exchange can be heard from 00:06:00 to 00:08:08 here.

We have yet another example of surreal grainy images in the NYC bomb incident. This is supposed to be one, Akayed Ullah, the “ISIS inspired” bomber. Where on earth is such an odd, contrived-looking photo even produced in 2017?

And imagine the savings on traditional brownstone operations. People can now easily be compromised using fake A.I. If a 14-year-old on a cheap A.I. budget can replicate Gal Gadot having sex with her stepbrother, then just imagine what a high budget Crime Syndicate can create. Just about anything — and they do. Anybody can be framed.

I also have a hypothesis that there are two variables that play into the effectiveness of this A.I. image fakery on the audience. I saw this with my 30-something son (who has an awareness of false flags) and his wife, who were looking at some of the hoax videos. I was seeing what I thought was artificial intelligence CGI. Something about it just didn’t quite square right with me. But they couldn’t see it.

I believe the following footage of people escaping the Bataclan in Paris is an example of CGI. Enlarge the screen. It is surreal. It plays with your perception. Something is off — the ghostly figures, including the people hanging from windows, and the sounds. These are not crisis actors. Part of the larger objective is to wire observers to accept this nonsense as real.

Beyond using critical thinking and being open minded, I attribute this to how our brains are hardwired in development. State-of-the-art A.I. technology is just about a decade old. Other mind-altering cocktails can be delivered in food and water. Over time, it will impact younger generations more and more. Thus, as the older population — who are not as hardwired to this — dies off, the planet is facing a twilight zone fantasy hive-mind existence.

The second variable is exposure to the media. I watch very little of the mind poison coming out of Hollywood. But looking at trailers, it seems surreal and other worldly to my older brain. I can’t even begin to imagine how wired children today are to this trickery. They have few reference points for what’s real or fake. Plus the fakery is getting better and better. This is no small matter.

WW takeaway: Welcome to the Brave New World of Altered Reality.

  1. Regarding youth & impressions of fakery, from my frequent conversations with young people, they are increasingly sceptical that ‘everything is fake’. Tho not ‘truthers’ like some of us older folks, because they don’t see the point of labouring over details when the conclusion is already in hand … Lots of stuff is fake.

    Young people are in active thought re several in-their-face IRL ‘in real life’ concerns –
    (a) Crime etc by migrants & foreigners, who is responsible for this, & why simple factual discussion of these issues is being suppressed
    (b) Un- and under-employment particularly hitting youth, & once again who is responsible & what are the alternatives
    (c) The dysfunctionality of male-female relations today, & how that can be fixed on a personal level

    That latter point is an underestimated factor in the huge impact of the 4chan, alt-right, and Andrew-Anglin-type worlds … what has been a major impulse in the millions of viewers won by Anglin, for example, was his concrete sexual advice to young males which they quickly found practical & effective, tho very ‘politically incorrect’ … e.g., if you act a bit rough & like you don’t give a shite, women often find you much more appealing, 10x more than if you are a ‘pro-feminist cuck male shitelib’

      • Many of the kids are wise to the video manipulation, but the more frightening trend is the total lack of interest in anything at all. Many of them are barely aware of what is going on. They know nothing of Bitcoin and the cryptos, nothing of the upheaval in Saudi Arabia, nothing about the pedophilia scandals. The girls and gays have been conditioned to accept all accusations of sexual misconduct as absolutely true even if they have fathers and brothers. Public schools are compromised by female teachers who preach a militant style of male/female relations and some of the girls are aware of it but afraid to push back despite having male relatives they love.

        • Re the ‘lack of interest’ in young people, it seems somewhat less true in Europe re knowledge, where young people seem to be more aware of national, international & even below-the-media-radar goings on

          But as far as ‘doing’ goes, what obviously afflicts young people on both continents, is that they feel a depressing lack of leadership from amongst the older generations, & so feel ‘lost’ even when aware that ‘nearly everything is a lie or f*cked up’

          This is another issue on which Anglin & co strike a responsive chord, when they say, ‘There is hardly anyone able to lead us, we are going to have to do this ourselves’

  2. The old Ben Franklin saying “believe none of what you hear and half of what you see” is now totally outdated and must now state “believe nothing you hear or see period”.

  3. That’s some athletic prowess, hanging off the balcony. Maybe agencies are recruiting from climbing clubs, gyms. I will say the clip looked realistic, despite my belief that event was totally phoney.

    Le Monde journalist Daniel Psenny records this escape with his cellphone and then goes to the exit and drags an American to safety. This 36 year-old, “Mathew”, survived the collapse of the South Tower in 9/11 only to get shot, but not seriously injured, in Paris. No surname of the twice unlucky, twice lucky guy.

    Both Le Monde and the Bataclan are owned by the Lagardère group.

  4. When Deep fakes appear poking fun at Atty: Alan Dershowitz, US Sen Richard Blumenthal, Isrl. Prime Mnstr: Benjamin Netanyahu, and Moses (you know the same was Hollywood Jews mock Jesus)…. Then laws will be passed and enforced…. Like downloading one song from a free website was punished with by the international courts with crippling financial penalties. *That is real power).
