I became Taylor Swift The latest celebrity to fall victim to the misuse of artificial intelligence is the two images used in a series of sexually explicit posts that went viral on platforms X and Telegram this week.
The issue has sparked renewed calls for legislation to combat the threats posed by artificial intelligence and deep fakes, as indecent images of the pop star began circulating on social media last Wednesday, many of them depicting Swift nude and engaged in sexual activity at a football. Fields, as a sign…he seems to have made recent appearances at NFL games.
A post uploaded by a user with a verified account attracted more than 45 million views and 24,000 retweets before X Moderators took it down 17 hours later, The Verge reported. The mass circulation of the images has fueled debates about the increasingly risque content. and misinformation generated by artificial intelligence on the Internet, many politicians believe it is time to introduce a federal law to address the problem.
Law to Combat Artificial Intelligence Crimes:
According to NBC News, since earlier this year, lawmakers have introduced legislation in at least 14 states to combat the problems artificial intelligence and deepfakes could create in elections. This week from US President Joe Biden.
But Democrat Representative Joseph Morrell has proposed a bill that would specifically criminalize the sharing of digitally altered sexually explicit content across the United States.
In May 2023, Morell introduced the Intimate Image Deepfax Prevention Act, which seeks to make it illegal to share deep pornographic images without consent. If passed, it would allow victims to sue the creators and distributors of such products anonymously.
The bill has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee, but has seen no further action for the past eight months, and now, Morell, one of the voices calling for urgent action, wrote in X on Thursday: “The proliferation of transparent images … “of Taylor Swift created by AI is horrifying — unfortunately , it's happening to women everywhere, every day.”
Representative of New Jersey. Tom Keen Jr. – Became the first Republican co-sponsor of the Morrill bill in November. After an incident that affected a high school student in his hometown — “it's clear that AI technology is advancing faster than the necessary safety nets.”
He added: “Whether the victim is Taylor Swift or any young person across our country, we must put safeguards in place to combat this disturbing trend.
Others are speaking out, including Democratic Rep. Yvette D. New York's Clark has sought to introduce a separate Deepfax liability law that would impose restrictions on the creation of AI-generated content. This bill also fails to pass the first hurdle.
She posted that day
Swift herself has not publicly responded to the photos, and a representative for the singer did not respond to Business Insider's request for comment on the situation, while the Daily Mail reported that her team is considering legal action against the AI-generated platform. Pictures.
Even without the comment, Swift's status as one of the world's most famous women may have done enough to highlight this infamous — and increasingly common — form of sexual harassment. According to a DeepFax report published in 2023, more than 95,000 videos of counterfeit notes were posted online last year, representing a 550% increase from 2019.
The report found that 98% of online deepfake videos contain deep porn, that women are disproportionately targeted, and that the lack of current legislation means that many women in Swift's position have lost little support after being reported. And purveyors of deepfakes, AI-driven porn may finally face consequences now that Swift has become its latest victim.
