The DeepDream software originated in a deep convolutional network codenamed "Inception" after the film of the same name,[1][2][3] was developed for the ImageNet Large-Scale Visual Recognition Challenge (ILSVRC) in 2014[3] and released in July 2015.

The dreaming idea and name became popular on the internet in 2015 thanks to Google's DeepDream program. The idea dates from early in the history of neural networks,[4] and similar methods have been used to synthesize visual textures.[5] Related visualization ideas were developed (prior to Google's work) by several research groups.[6][7]

After Google published their techniques and made their code open source,[8] a number of tools in the form of web services, mobile applications, and desktop software appeared on the market to enable users to transform their own photos.

After seeing such AI-assisted works of art, i would see them in museums.

It is possible to take a picture of Einstein or Marilyn Monroe, or even the Mona Lisa, and make it move and speak like a real person.

This Horrifying App Undresses a Photo of Any Woman With a Single Click
"This is absolutely terrifying," Katelyn Bowden, founder and CEO of revenge porn activism organization Badass, told Motherboard. "Now anyone could find themselves a victim of revenge porn, without ever having taken a nude photo. This tech should not be available to the public."


Since Motherboard discovered deepfakes in late 2017, the media and politicians focused on the dangers they pose as a disinformation tool. But the most devastating use of deepfakes has always been in how they're used against women: whether to experiment with the technology using images without women's consent, or maliciously spreading nonconsensual porn on the internet. DeepNude is an evolution of that technology that is easier to use and faster to create than deepfakes. DeepNude also dispenses with the idea that this technology can be used for anything other than claiming ownership over women’s bodies.

Motherboard tested it on more than a dozen images of women and men, in varying states of dress—fully clothed to string bikinis—and a variety of skin tones. The results vary dramatically, but when fed a well lit, high resolution image of a woman in a bikini facing the camera directly, the fake nude images are passably realistic. The algorithm accurately fills in details where clothing used to be, angles of the breasts beneath the clothing, nipples, and shadows.

But it's not flawless. Most images, and low-resolution images especially, produced some visual artifacts. DeepNude failed entirely with some photographs that used weird angles, lighting, or clothing that seem to throw off the neural network it uses.


We are in for some disinformation on a vast scale with such tools.

Don’t Try To Download DeepNude Apps From The Internet, Here’s Why
The tool was created by an anonymous developer who is believed to be from Estonia. As per the latest updates, the creator has removed the DeepNude app and taken down the website hosting it.
While some websites claim to have an Android version of the app, others want you to fill out survey forms but give you nothing in return.
All of this is nothing but an attempt to deceive users to gain monetary benefits. So, whatever links you click would lead you nowhere or if the download file exists it might contain malware or adware.

Subject description: The world isn’t ready for deepfakes

Worse than purported "fake news," deepfakes are likely to further decrease trust in online media sources.

Deepfakes are getting so impossibly convincing, even the best discerners aided with the right technology are having trouble telling the difference between what’s faked and what’s real. This isn’t a parlor trick. In the right hands, deepfakes have the potential to destabilize entire societies—and we’re nowhere near ready to deal with the threat.

A “deepfake” is a fabricated video, either created from scratch or based on existing materials, typically designed to replicate the look and sound of a real human saying and doing things they haven’t done or wouldn’t ordinarily do. As with many emerging technologies, it shares a root in pornography, with online users attempting to create realistic videos of celebrities in sexual acts. This is problematic enough, but the future could lead to this technology being used to replicate a sitting U.S. president or another political leader, using them almost like a ventriloquist’s dummy to say and do whatever the creator wants.

Deepfake video of Barack Obama :

Imagine a deepfake of Donald Trump declaring war against China, in a period of high tension between the two countries. Who can say what would happened next. Nukes flying overhead.
This is robots superceding humans. The worst nightmare of AI detractors.
