A program called DeepNude was taken down several weeks ago, by developers, who realized the potential for abuse. The anonymous developers of DeepNude realized that a potential market for selling pornographic images exists on the internet. While they were trying to make the program more powerful and better, they accidentally created an easy way to defraud advertisers. This is called the ‘Deep Cell Market’. It is an ad fraud scheme.
When the creators of deepnude realized their potential for abuse, they immediately took it down and improved upon it. However, the programmers behind the program that removed deepnude completely made another robot that could do the same thing. The new robot is called DeepAffinity and is being sold on eBay as a program that can turn women into porn stars in the privacy of their own homes.
I believe that the creators of deepnude were not expecting this fraud to happen, but they should have been. After all, it is against the stated laws of Google to allow advertisements on websites that are known to encourage people to take advantage of others. DeepAffinity is nothing like deepnude; it does not take photos off of live girls, it does not have an option to turn people around to see who they are with or what they are doing. This may seem like a pointless feature until you consider what it is used for.
The main function of DeepAffinity is to create deepnude accounts that appear natural. This means that the photo agency used by the creator of deepnude is able to edit nudes to appear as if they were taken off of live models. Many women are unhappy with the photos they are given and using this open-source algorithm eliminates the need to worry about being defrauded. Of course, the creator could also choose to make modifications to the deepnude algorithm that allow even the most unflattering photos to be edited to appear as natural.
What this means for the future of online dating is the ability to create profiles using photos that have been photoshopped to make them look as if they were taken from a Playboy Mansion or a Victoria’s Secret catalog. This will eliminate the need for women to lie about their physical characteristics in order to lure men to them. Women will also have the opportunity to take photos of themselves in a completely different outfit, while still taking control of the rest of the graphic design. DeepAffinity was the first nude web app to go viral, and it is certain to continue to be a leader in the world of internet dating.
As the name suggests, deepnude uses photographs submitted by real people. Therefore, it is certain that all of the photos posted by its members are genuine. The majority of deepnude profiles contain more than just a.I profile picture; they include a.D profile picture, too. While deepnude are not widely used in the online community, their use does signify a trend toward more honest and open social networking sites.
