Copies Of AI #deepfake App #DeepNude Are Easily Accessible Online — And Always Will Be

New York (The Verge) — Copies of AI deepfake app DeepNude are easily accessible online — and always will be theverge.com/2019/7/3/20680….

Once something has been shared online, it never truly goes away. This adage is particularly relevant for DeepNude, software that uses AI to fake nude images of women. The Verge was able to find links that ostensibly offer downloads of DeepNude in a variety of places, including Telegram channels, message boards like 4chan, YouTube video descriptions, and even on the Microsoft-owned code repository GitHub.

The app came to public attention last week after a report from Motherboardhighlighted its existence. Shortly afterward, the app’s creator pulled it from the web, saying that the probability the software would be misused to harass and shame women was “too high.”

Of course, the app is still available, with numerous copies floating around forums and message boards. The Verge was able to find links that ostensibly offer downloads of DeepNude in a variety of places, including Telegram channels, message boards like 4chan, YouTube video descriptions, and even on the Microsoft-owned (since 2018) code repository GitHub.
