They Used to Say a Photograph Doesn't Lie - You Can't Say That Now

In the News

I knew that people could Photoshop photos and put filters on but was shocked to read about a website which allows people to undress photos in minutes - producing digitally generated nude images.

I wasn't aware of this, until I read this headline MP wants AI 'nudifying' tool banned. Hopefully she is successful.

I hadn't heard of this before either, but it all sounds a bit creepy.

Even though the nude picture wouldn't be real, people could still post it/share it somewhere online

The article said that some of the Olympic athletes have been victims of this, it's appalling 😔

That saying was never really true. Manipulation of images started shortly after the first photographs were taken. The Cottingley Fairies is a famous example...

A ban wouldn't really work unless it was applied globally. It would be easy for UK citizens who want the software to circumnavigate any restrictions by using a VPN. The UK government failed in their attempt to introduce an age verification system for adult content. They may not want to go further than expressing outrage, as implementing a ban would be easier said than done.

I understand that we live in a global world and the are new game changing technologies being launched every day. I was just shocked as I had never even heard of this, it must be so terrible for the victims of this app.😔
