There is a website — https://thisxdoesnotexist.com/ — that collects links for various sites along the lines of This Person Does Not Exist, for example, or This Automobile Does Not Exist.
So I started wondering about a complement, “This is Not Me”, that could link to customisable AI tools that could take over you, for example, by generating things in the style of you.
- VALL-E (research paper on a text-to-speech generator using your voice, from a short clip of you speaking);
- FRAN (“Production-Ready Face Re-Aging for Visual Effects” from Disney);
- Calligrapher AI (text-to-handwriting: parameterised, at the moment, but how long before you can train it with your handwriting?)
Things to look out for:
- did you really go there? (add your photo to an obscure location; photoshop does this already, but 1-click for the rest of us…);
- did you really do that? (photo of you apparently doing something — trampolining whilst wearing wellies and a Rocky Horror costime, for example; okay… maybe you did do that… Again, Photoshop, but for the rest of us…)
- did you really write that? (something written in your style and with your flavour of typos.. I suspect there are lots of these already but I haven’t looked…)
Getting darker, then there’s the deepfake pr0n stuff, of course…
