This brief paper describes their automated digital look-alike detection system and evaluate its efficacy and reliability in comparison to humans with untrained eyes. Their work provides automated evaluation tools to catch so called "deep fakes" and their motivation seems to have been to find automation armor against disinformation warfare against humans and the humanity. Automated digital media forensics is a very good idea explored by many. Boháček and Farid 2022 detection system works by evaluating both facial mannerisms as well as gestural mannerisms to detect the non-human ones from the ones that are human in origin.

[edit | edit source]
Transcluded from Juho's proposal for banning unauthorized synthetic pornography
§1 Models of human appearance[edit | edit source]
A model of human appearance means
- A realistic 3D model
- A 7D bidirectional reflectance distribution function model
- A direct-to-2D capable w:machine learning model
- Or a model made with any technology whatsoever, that looks deceivingly like the target person.
§2 Producing synthetic pornography[edit | edit source]
Making projections, still or videographic, where targets are portrayed in a nude or in a sexual situation from models of human appearance defined in §1 without express consent of the targets is illegal.
§3 Distributing synthetic pornography[edit | edit source]
Distributing, making available, public display, purchase, sale, yielding, import and export of non-authorized synthetic pornography defined in §2 are punishable.[footnote 1]
§4 Aggravated producing and distributing synthetic pornography[edit | edit source]
If the media described in §2 or §3 is made or distributed with the intent to frame for a crime or for blackmail, the crime should be judged as aggravated.
Afterwords[edit | edit source]
The original idea I had was to ban both the raw materials i.e. the models to make the visual synthetic filth and also the end product weaponized synthetic pornography, but then in July 2019 it appeared to me that Adequate Porn Watcher AI (concept) could really help in this age of industrial disinformation if it were built, trained and operational. Banning modeling of human appearance was in conflict with the revised plan.
It is safe to assume that collecting permissions to model each pornographic recording is not plausible, so an interesting question is that can we ban covert modeling from non-pornographic pictures, while still retaining the ability to model all porn found on the Internet.
In case we want to pursue banning modeling people's appearance from non-pornographic images/videos without explicit permission be pursued it must be formulated so that this does not make Adequate Porn Watcher AI (concept) illegal / impossible. This would seem to lead to a weird situation where modeling a human from non-pornographic media would be illegal, but modeling from pornography legal.
SSFWIKI proposed countermeasure to weaponized synthetic pornography: Adequate Porn Watcher AI (concept) (transcluded)[edit | edit source]
Transcluded main contents from Adequate Porn Watcher AI (concept)
Adequate Porn Watcher AI (APW_AI) is an w:AI and w:computer vision concept to search for any and all porn that should not be by watching and modeling all porn ever found on the w:Internet thus effectively protecting humans by exposing covert naked digital look-alike attacks and also other contraband.
The method and the effect
The method by which APW_AI would be providing safety and security to its users, is that they can briefly upload a model they've gotten of themselves and then the APW_AI will either say nothing matching found or it will be of the opinion that something matching found.
If people are able to check whether there is synthetic porn that looks like themselves, this causes synthetic hate-illustration industrialists' product lose destructive potential and the attacks that happen are less destructive as they are exposed by the APW_AI and thus decimate the monetary value of these disinformation weapons to the criminals.
If you feel comfortable to leave your model with the good people at the benefactor for safekeeping you get alerted and help if you ever get attacked with a synthetic porn attack.
Looking up if matches are found for anyone else's model is forbidden and this should probably be enforced with a facial w:biometric w:facial recognition system app that checks that the model you want checked is yours and that you are awake.
Definition of adequacy
An adequate implementation should be nearly free of false positives, very good at finding true positives and able to process more porn than is ever uploaded.
What about the people in the porn-industry?
People who openly do porn can help by opting-in to help in the development by providing training material and material to test the AI on. People and companies who help in training the AI naturally get credited for their help.
There are of course lots of people-questions to this and those questions need to be identified by professionals of psychology and social sciences.
The idea of APW_AI occurred to User:Juho Kunsola on Friday 2019-07-12. Subsequently (the next day) this discovery caused the scrapping of the plea to ban convert modeling of human appearance as that would have rendered APW_AI legally impossible.
SSFWIKI proposed countermeasure to digital sound-alikes: Outlawing digital sound-alikes (transcluded)[edit | edit source]
Transcluded from Juho's proposal on banning digital sound-alikes
Motivation: The current situation where the criminals can freely trade and grow their libraries of stolen voices is unwise.
[edit | edit source]
Acquiring such a model of a human's voice, that deceptively resembles some dead or living person's voice and the possession, purchase, sale, yielding, import and export without the express consent of the target are punishable.
[edit | edit source]
Producing and making available media from covert voice models defined in §1 is punishable.
[edit | edit source]
If the produced media is for a purpose to
- frame a human target or targets for crimes
- to attempt extortion or
- to defame the target,
the crime should be judged as aggravated.
About this article[edit | edit source]

- FacePinPoint.com, a crucial past service by Lionel Hagege
- Adequate Porn Watcher AI (concept), an AI concept practically identical with FacePinPoint.com
- A law proposal against synthetic non-consensual pornography

In resources there are likely a few services that could fit here.
Footnotes[edit | edit source]
- People who are found in possession of this synthetic pornography should probably not be penalized, but rather advised to get some help.

I got some information to him that I thought he really should know and also got a very hope-bearing answer to my question about the IP: Mr. Hagege owns it after the dissolution of the company in 2021 and he would be interested in getting at it again, but only if sufficient financing would be supplied.
- 2022-02-21 - 2nd contact - I got another free month of LinkedIn pro and sent LinkedIn mail to Mr. Hagege, explaining the pressing need for FacePinPoint.com to make a return, as a public good. Hoping to get an answer.
- 2021-12-18 - first contact - I managed to reach someone at FacePinPoint via their Facebook chat and they told me that they could not find funding and needed to shut shop.
Relay access denied (in reply to RCPT TO command).
