An AI App Faked Me Deeply And It Felt Weird

Early last week, a couple of amazing images appeared in my inbox, they were photos of me, more or less. One was of me as a child – the child was recognizable but not Correct. I had been badly faked and it was…weird. He also raised many questions about the trust and the future of art and photography.

The email was from a Harvard student, Alfred Wahlforss, and he had an AI photography app in development, based on the open source code from Stable Diffusion. You can create your own weird childhood photos in the BeFake app for yourself, or fakes of famous people.
