Dr Olivarius discusses "Deepfakes" with BBC Three

Dr Olivarius spoke with BBC Three about the growing trend of "deepfakes," pornographic images altered with AI face-swap technology to replace the original performer's face with another. 

"It's a great concern to us," she says. "It's really devastating for these women because with new technology, it can look like the real thing. The intent behind it is always to hurt and to degrade." Dr Olivarius also pointed to the link between revenge pornography and deepfakes, noting "There are so many different types of revenge porn out there. It's a growing problem, and it keeps manifesting itself in new ways."
