Since Artificial Intelligence gains more followers in the science community and beyond. Some of this technology is publicly accessible. Thanks to open source projects technology like machine learning is free to be used by anyone. The recent upcoming of the deepfake craze is a good example on how we still have a lot to learn. Besides of the legality, there are far more ethical complications.
With the new tool users can easily swap the faces of celebrities onto preexisting video images. In other words, videos in which the faces of porn stars have been replaced by celebrity faces. It's terrifying how real they look. And we start to wonder what would happen if it were your face on an adult star's body. Revenge porn would reach a whole different level.
However, is technology to blame? Or do we really need some lessons in social skills? In the light of fake news and the digital age, there might be an increasing need for skepticism.
