A while ago, it was popular all over the network, and the controversial "one-button undressing" app DeepNude, has now been completely offline under pressure from all sides, and the subsequent version will not be updated. The author officially announced the news on Twitter and briefly reviewed DeepNude's "short life."
A few months ago, we created DeepNude, for user entertainment. We expect to sell a few copies a month, and everything is under control.To be honest, this APP is not doing so well and only works for some photos. But we never thought the app would spread on such a viral scale that traffic was beyond our control, and we proved to be grossly underestimating the number of downloads of the app.
Although some security measures have been taken in the application, the risk of abuse is still too high, and we do not want to make money in this way. DeepNude must still have a lot of shared downloads online, but we don't want to continue selling this APP, to download and share from other sources in violation of the license terms of this site. From now on, DeepNude is no longer updated and no longer licensed to anyone, even the previously activated toll version.
Although the original author has removed DeepNude from the shelves and is no longer updated, a large number of older versions of the virus still exist on the Internet. There are reports that the latest version of DeepNude is now on sale on the Discord site at $20 a copy.
DeepNude has attracted more and more attention and concern because it may encourage abuse for revenge purposes, such as forcing porn or humiliating others on public platforms.
Although DeepNude authors say that "the world is not ready," some people say that such a simple and rude direct removal and stop is contrary to the principle of free dissemination of information.
Moreover, the student is not just talking about it, he collected the original framework used by DeepNude online, as well as the trained learning model, through reverse engineering to reproduce the functionality of DeepNude, and sent it to GitHub, known as the "open source DeepNude" project.
The author says that the reverse engineering project is still in progress and that some of the original code can only be manually decompilated. The current resource database contains the main neural network architecture of DeepNude and the trained model.
On GitHub, the author explains his motivation for setting up this "open source DeepNude" repository:
I don't care about naked photos or anything. I don't care. But what annoys me most is that some people don't want to use it, just want to let others not use it, which is very stupid. The review and blocking of technology and knowledge cannot prevent the proliferation and dissemination of content. Information should be free. By removing the download link, you are actually improving security by setting up artificial barriers. This is the main content of my dissatisfaction with the current situation, so I launched this project to get people to abandon this mentality.
Weapons can be masked, but weapons themselves cannot be used as pans.
From online, viral spread, denounced, offline, to the current "open source", DeepNude, this highly controversial app caused by the storm behind, In fact, it is a fierce conflict between the unrestricted concept of freedom in the dissemination of information and technology on the one hand and deep concerns about technology abuse and privacy security on the other.
