A machine-learning-powered perv super-tool that automagically removed clothes from women in photos to make them appear naked has been torn offline by its makers. Color us shocked. What do you think would happen when you train a neural network to, in mere seconds, create fake naked images of women — and chiefly women, it doesn't work properly on men — and release it for the world's weirdos to use?
Basement dwellers and trolls could feed it snaps of celebrities, colleagues, ex-girlfriends, and anyone else who takes their fancy, and have the software guess, somewhat badly, what they look like underneath their clothes, keeping their faces intact. These bogus nudes are perfect for distributing around the 'net to humiliate victims.
The team initially said on Thursday they were trying to fix bugs, and expected everything to grab the nudes up and running again in a few days:. DeepNude is offline. Because we did not expect these visits and our servers need reinforcement. We are a small team. We need to fix some bugs and catch our breath. We are working to make DeepNude stable and working. We will be back online soon in a few days.
Shortly after that message, they changed their tune. Instead of trying to bring it back online, the developers decided to pull the plug on deepnude. Or rather, quite likely, the team wasn't ready for all the criticism and rage lobbed its way on Twitter, Facebook, and elsewhere, as a result of its work. Here's the announcement of the sudden end of DeepNude:.
That software sparked so much outcry, US lawmakers organised a hearing to investigate the effects of deep-learning-faked material. The DeepNude website and app went viral after it was first reported by Vice's Samantha Cole earlier this week. Below is a screenshot we managed to grab before it all disappeared. Both neural networks slapped a watermark in the corner of their output images to show that the snaps were fake, and how they were created.
The premium version created images that have a less obvious watermark than the free version. The website was set up in March, with the first people who ed up for an offered free downlo, and the first desktop versions of the code emerged on June The site apparently struggled to process credit card payments under the strain of demand. Paying in cryptocurrencies worked for a little while longer, however, until that system collapsed, too.
Now that the project has been scrapped completely, the DeepNude app can no longer be downloaded. Any netizens who paid for the premium version but have yet to activate it will not be given access to it, and will be refunded. Anyone who managed to obtain a working copy of the software can still use it to whatever ends they want. The creators have urged people to not share the program. It is only a matter of time before someone makes and distributes a clone of the software. Cloudflare on Friday accused competitor Amazon Web Services of massive markups and hindering customer data portability, even as it invited the cloud services giant to its discount data initiative known as the Bandwidth Alliance.
Prince and Nitin Rao, SVP of global infrastructure at Cloudflare, elaborated on that claim in a blog post that argues AWS is charging customers orders of magnitude more than its costs and makes a mockery of its parent grab the nudes mission statement that Amazon strives "to offer our customers the lowest possible prices…". Alphabet today launched its latest tech startup, Intrinsic, which aims to build commercial software that will power industrial robots. Intrinsic will focus on developing software control tools for industrial robots used in manufacturing, we're told.
Its pitch is that the days of humans having to manually program and adjust a robot's every move are over, and that mechanical bots should be more autonomous and smart, thanks to advances in artificial intelligence and leaps in training techniques. This could make robots easier to direct — give them a task, and they'll figure out the specifics — and more efficient — the AI can work out the best way to achieve its goal.

The fact that it didn't regret the actual document itself seemed to alarm a good many users. A couple from the US who run a small ecommerce publication have launched legal action against eBay accusing the grab the nudes of a "coordinated effort to intimidate, threaten to kill, torture, terrorize, stalk and silence" them to muzzle their coverage. The allegations — made in a complaint lodged in the US District Court of Massachusetts this week — are the latest chapter in a long-running case that has already resulted in guilty pleas from a of former employees in what has become known as the "eBay cyberstalking case".
Lawyers acting on behalf of the owners of EcommerceBytes — an online trade publication that covers the ecommerce industry run by journalists Ina and David Steiner - said the intimidation was so bad they were in fear for their lives.
