Deepfakes And True Crime

Filed under if AI ends humanity it will do so with human stupidity.

The article discusses AI-generated videos on TikTok that depict true-crime stories, particularly focusing on the stories of murder victims, including young children.

AI Deepfakes of True-Crime Victims Are a Waking Nightmare

The baby in the video is, of course, not real: She’s an AI-generated creation posted on @truestorynow, an account with nearly 50,000 followers that posts videos of real-life crime victims telling their stories. The gruesome story she’s telling is true, albeit to a point. The baby’s name wasn’t Rody Marie, but Royalty Marie, and she was found stabbed to death and burned in an oven in her grandmother’s home in Mississippi in 2018; the grandmother, 48-year-old Carolyn Jones, was charged with first-degree murder earlier this year. But Royalty was 20 months when she died, not 21, and unlike the baby in the TikTok video, she was Black, not white.
