Because regular porn is just too boring, a Reddit user has just announced that he’s about to take his fake celebrity porn gig to the next level. After Wonder Woman’s appearance Reddit user deepfakes announced that he’s currently working on a portable version of the app.
What’s Fake Celebrity Porn?
The trend started back in December 2017, when a couple of videos depicted popular celebrities like Gal Gadot doing nasties popped out on the Internet. Obviously, the community figured out that the clip is as fake as plastic flowers, but it did manage to catch on.
So, come 2018, it would appear that not only more fake celebrity porn videos are started to crawl out, but also more people are volunteering for the job of actually making them. The author of these videos is a Reddit user who goes by the name of deepfakes.
Using an AI-powered algorithm, the user managed to create an app that matches celebrity facial expression to a porn industry lookalike. Also, since the ‘leak’ of the Gal Gadot video, the algorithm has been improved, being capable of doing the actual matching process with uncanny accuracy.
In a recent Reddit post, deepfakes announced that he would start using machine learning in order to improve the facial swap algorithm further. He will not be alone in this endeavor, as the user managed to amass a community of 15,000 users.
His endgame is to create an easy to deploy and employ an application, that’s capable of swapping facial expressions from a pre-defined online library. The application can potentially swap faces inside the video, without any additional tweaking.
Although it might sound like bogus, it seems that several users employed deepfakes’ face-swapping algorithm with some degree of success, making fake celebrity porn videos featuring Mauricio Macri and even Adolph Hitler.
