Fake nude photography refers to nude photographs created to appear as actual nudes of an individual. Many websites host fake nude and pornographic photos of celebrities, which are sometimes referred to as celebrity fakes. Magazines such as Celebrity Skin , which published paparazzi shots and illicitly obtained nude photos, have been cited as precursors to this phenomenon. The reasons for the creation of nude photos may range from a need to discredit the target publicly, personal hatred for the target, or the promise of pecuniary gains for such work on the part of the creator of such photos. Fake nude photos often target prominent figures such as businesspeople or politicians. In , 97 people were arrested in Korea after spreading fake nude pictures of the group Girls' Generation on the internet. In , South Korean police identified Korean artists of whom fake nudes were circulating. In , when Liu Yifei 's fake nude photography released on the network, Liu Yifei Red Star Land Company declared a legal search to find out who created and released the photos. In the same year, Chinese actor Huang Xiaoming released nude photos that sparked public controversy, but they were ultimately proven to be real pictures.
A screenshot of a portion of the DeepNude website. Update June 27, p. Read more, here. A programmer created an application that uses neural networks to remove clothing from the images of women, making them look realistically nude. The software, called DeepNude, uses a photo of a clothed person and creates a new, naked image of that same person. It swaps clothes for naked breasts and a vulva, and only works on images of women. When Motherboard tried using an image of a man, it replaced his pants with a vulva. While DeepNude works with varying levels of success on images of fully clothed women, it appears to work best on images where the person is already showing a lot of skin. We tested the app on dozens of photos and got the most convincing results on high resolution images from Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issues. Since Motherboard discovered deepfakes in late , the media and politicians focused on the dangers they pose as a disinformation tool.
