Other clips from Unreal_Margot show the CGI woman displaying “model poses” and dancing in a skintight leather dress.

Experts have warned of the danger of deepfakes, with big tech companies cracking down on savvy internet users who continue to create fake AI-assisted pornography of many of Hollywood’s leading ladies.

Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting that the person behind the Unreal_Margot TikTok account is doing AI-assisted pornography.

“Deepfake” enthusiasts have also used the technology to create digitally altered videos of world leaders, including Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

However, computer scientists have recently developed a tool that detects deepfake photos with near-perfect accuracy.

What is a deepfake?

Deepfakes are so named because they are made using deep learning, a form of artificial intelligence, to create fake videos of a target individual.

They are created by feeding a computer an algorithm or set of instructions, along with numerous sights and sounds of the target person.

The computer program then learns to imitate the person’s facial expressions, mannerisms, voice and inflections.

The system, which analyzes light reflections in a subject’s eyes, has been shown to be 94% efficient in experiments.

In real portraits, the light reflected back into our eyes is usually the same shape and color because both eyes are looking at the same thing.

Since deepfakes are composites made from many different photos, most leave out this crucial detail.

Deepfakes have become a concern in the 2020 US presidential election, raising concerns that they could be used to discredit candidates and spread misinformation.  (Seen: a Robbie deepfake)

“The cornea looks almost like a perfect half-sphere and is highly reflective,” said SUNY Buffalo computer science professor Siwei Lyu at the time.

“So anything that hits the eye with light emitted from these sources will have an image on the cornea.”

Deepfakes have become a particular concern during the 2020 US presidential election, raising concerns that they could be used to discredit candidates and spread misinformation.

A heavily edited video of Nancy Pelosi that made it look like the Speaker of the House was drunkenly articulating her speech went viral last year.

At the same time, it emerged that photos shared by women and underage girls on their social media were faked to appear naked by a deepfake bot on the Telegram messaging app.

More than 100,000 non-consensual sexual images of 10,000 women and girls created using the bot were shared online between July 2019 and 2020, according to a report by deepfake detection firm Sensity.

“Unfortunately, a lot of these types of fake videos were created for pornographic purposes, and it (caused) a lot of… psychological damage to the victims,” ​​Lyu said.

Celebrities including actress Kristen Bell and model Vogue Williams have spoken of pornographic deepfakes of themselves circulating.

Bell said in 2020 that she felt “exploited” after discovering a pornographic video featuring a female AI that looked like her, while Williams said she “find it weird” and feared her children would see the fake clip.
