Women Are Falling Victim to AI-generated Deepfakes

QTCinderella is a professional live streamer with over 800 thousand followers on Twitch and creator of "The Streamer Awards" to celebrate other top-notch content creators.

Recently, another streamer on Twitch called Atrioc who lives with QT, was caught on stream with a tab open for a site containing NSFW computer-generated porn that uses the faces of popular streamers. The content was created using a tool called deepfake.

The video led to outrage in the Twitch community. With many streamers both male and female condemning Atrioc.

Since then Atrioc has issued an apology and announced he will step away from creating content.

Now, anyone with access to your photos can create realistic-looking explicit content of you, and there's not much you can do to stop it.

Just imagine receiving a message from your family with a picture of you doing things you've never done.

Exhausting and unacceptable, right?

The problem is not limited to just deepfakes.

Unfortunately, QT is not the only or last woman who will be affected negatively by AI.

We are still extremely early in our understanding of how AI will change society. This issue is likely just the vanguard of what's still to come when we can no longer control what other people do with our voice or likeness.


  • Deepfakes are being used to victimize women

  • AI technology is making it easier to create these fake videos

  • The impact on the victims can be severe, including harm to their reputation and psychological trauma.

  • Steps need to be taken to address this issue, including improved technology for detecting deepfakes and better education for the public.

Human Artists vs AI

Advances in generative A.I. mean that robots are now creating images that are winning art contests and being used as book covers!

You've probably already of tools like Stable Diffusion and Midjourney, which generate images using patterns learned from analyzing billions of images and text from the internet.

These tools are really good at mimicking the work of any specific artist whose works are included in its training data and users are even able to upload new images they wish to emulate.

Artists like Karla Ortiz, an illustrator based in San Francisco, are worried about the implications of these A.I. generators.

She's receiving fewer requests for their work and is concerned that feeding the "monster" of these A.I. generators with her own art is essentially canabalizing her business.

That's why a team of computer science researchers at the University of Chicago has developed a tool called Glaze, which helps artists take back their consent.

Artists can upload their work to Glaze and the tool will make changes to their work at the pixel level to confuse computer-learning models.

The University of Chicago team recognizes that their tool might not guarantee protection and could lead to countermeasures by those committed to emulating a particular artist, but they're hoping that it will help fill the void until laws and regulations catch up.

In the legal world, experts are comparing the rise of generative art to the early days of Napster and the concerns over pirating music.

Companies with art-generating services are already facing court challenges, including a class-action lawsuit in California by artists asserting violations of copyright and right of publicity.


  • Human artists are fighting back against AI-generated art, claiming it plagiarizes their work.

  • A team of researchers at The University of Chicago are working on a anti-plagiarism service to stop AI generated art from copying the work of human artists.

  • Some art-generating services are already facing legal challenges as a class-action lawsuit launched in California.

Your next million-dollar ideas ๐Ÿค‘

๐Ÿ”ฎ Prediction: As AI becomes ubiquitous, there will be a strong demand for companies to help offset the potential downsides of AI.

๐Ÿ’ธ Business Idea #1 Plagiarism detection 2.0. Sell to every university and testing authority that needs to enforce academic integrity.

๐Ÿ’ธ Business Idea #2 AI take-down service. Automatically detect instances of deep fakes using your client's images and do the dirty work of submitting take-down requests to scrub the internet of non-consensual content.
