Deepfake videos are created using artificial intelligence to manipulate a face to look like another person or appear to be saying something they are not saying.

Video footage of Kate came from a television interview she gave when she drew attention to non-consensual pornography.

It was dubbed to the porn actress and appeared to show her having sex.

she said BBC: “My heart sank. I could not think clear. I remember just feeling like this video was going to go everywhere – it was horrific.

“It was a violation – my identity was used in a way that I did not consent to.”

She founded the #NotYourPorn initiative in 2019 hoping to introduce regulations on content posted on adult entertainment websites after her friend’s iCloud was hacked and personal content was leaked online.

Their work contributed to Pornhub being forced to remove all videos uploaded to the site by unverified users.

Suddenly she found herself the victim, believing that the video was probably made by someone who had opposed her view or was affected by the changes she was helping to introduce.

She became afraid that people who knew her would believe it was really her.

Kate said: “You’re starting to think about your family. How would you feel if you saw this content?”

The intensity of the situation increased when netizens started writing vile comments under it.

Some said they wanted to follow her home, film her rape and post it online too.

Their situation continued to escalate as people put their work and home addresses online.

She said: “I got totally paranoid – ‘Who knows my address? Is it someone I know who did this?’

“I was like, ‘I’m really in trouble here, this isn’t just some people on the internet speaking up, there’s actually a real danger.'”

Deepfakes – what are they and how do they work?

Here’s what you need to know…

  • Deepfakes is a downloadable app that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to produce face-swapped porn with very little effort
  • To create the videos, users first locate an XXX clip featuring a pornstar who looks like an actress
  • Then they feed an app hundreds — and sometimes thousands — of photos of the victim’s face
  • A machine learning algorithm swaps faces frame by frame until it spits out a realistic but fake sextape
  • To help other users create these videos, perverts upload “facesets,” huge computer folders filled with a celebrity’s face that can be easily fed via the “Deepfakes” app
  • Edwin Coe’s Simon Miles, intellectual property specialist, told The Sun that the fake sex tapes could be seen as an “unlawful invasion” of a celeb’s privacy
  • He added that celebrities could demand the content be removed, but warned: “The difficulty is that damage has already been done

Dangerous new deepfake apps insert people’s faces into porn content and then demand ransoms.

Millions of women have been the target of deepfake revenge porn, according to concerned experts.

Deepfake AI technology has only been around for about five years, and yet there are already numerous platforms that make the technology easy to use and accessible to almost everyone.

Experts fear that it has now progressed to the point that it is difficult to distinguish between a fake video and a real one.

A UK online safety law is set to give Ofcom the power to crack down on websites around the world that harm or allow Britons to use it.

Culture Secretary Michelle Donelan has assured that she and her team are working flat out to get the bill delivered after endless revisions have caused delays.

It is hoped that the law will protect children from harmful content such as pornography and limit exposure to illegal content.

Social media platforms, search engines and other apps and websites that allow people to share content are needed to protect children and fight against illegal activities.
