Unmasking AI Excerpts

“At this point anything was up for grabs. I looked around my office and saw the white mask that I'd brought to Cindy's the previous night.

As I held it over my face, a box appeared on the laptop screen. The box signaled that my masked face was detected.

I took the mask off, and as my dark skinned human face came into view, the detection box disappeared.

The software did not "see" me.

A bit unsettled, I put the mask back over my face to finish testing the code.

Coding in whiteface was the last thing I expected to do when I came to MIT, but -for better or for worse-I had encountered what I now call the "coded gaze."

You may have heard of the male gaze, a concept developed by media scholars to describe how, in a patriarchal society, art, media, and other forms of representation are created with a male viewer in mind.

The male gaze decides which subjects are desirable and worthy of attention, and it determines how they are to be judged.

You may also be familiar with the white gaze, which similarly privileges the representation an stories of white Europeans and their descendants.

Inspired by these terms, the coded gaze describes the ways in which the priorities, preferences, and prejudices of those who have the power to shape technology can propagate harm, such as discrimination and erasure.

We can encode prejudice into technology even if it is not intentional."
From Unmasking AI by Dr. Joy Buolamwini

Dr. Joy Buolamwini's journey from a student at MIT to founding the Algorithmic Justice League (AJL) is a compelling narrative of recognizing and combating AI bias.

While working on a project at MIT, she encountered a significant flaw in facial analysis software: it failed to detect her face due to its underlying bias against darker skin tones.

This experience catalyzed her research into "unmasking bias" in facial recognition technologies, leading to the influential "Gender Shades" paper with Dr. Timnit Gebru, which highlighted gender and skin type biases in commercial AI products.

Buolamwini's work emphasizes the importance of equitable and accountable AI.

The AJL combines art and research to illuminate the social implications and harms of AI, highlighting the stories of people impacted by harmful technology in the "Coded Bias" documentary.

The organization advocates for robust mechanisms to protect people from AI harms and holds companies and institutions accountable for AI misuse.

Buolamwini's approach to addressing AI bias involves a blend of advocacy, education, and research.

By focusing on actionable solutions and bridging the gap from principles to practice, the AJL seeks to shift the AI ecosystem towards better practices, protecting those most vulnerable to AI's potential misuse.

The No AI Fraud Act - Proposed in US

• Reaffirm that everyone’s likeness and voice is protected, giving individuals the right to control the use of their identifying characteristics.

• Empower individuals to enforce this right against those who facilitate, create, and spread AI frauds without their permission.

• Balance the rights against the 1st Amendment to safeguard speech and innovation.

SUPPORT THE No AI FRAUD ACT

AI-Generated Fakes Threaten All Americans

New personalized generative artificial intelligence (AI) cloning models and services have enabled human impersonation and allow users to make unauthorized fakes using the images and voices of others.

The abuse of this quickly advancing technology has affected everyone from musical artists to high school students whose personal rights have been violated.

AI-generated fakes and forgeries are everywhere. While AI holds incredible promise, Americans deserve common sense rules to ensure that a person’s voice and likeness cannot be exploited without their permission.

The Threat Is Here

Protection from AI fakes is needed now. We have already seen the kinds of harm these cloning models can inflict, and the problem won’t resolve itself.

From an AI-generated Drake/The Weeknd duet, to Johnny Cash singing “Barbie Girl,” to “new” songs by Bad Bunny that he never recorded to a false dental plan endorsement featuring Tom Hanks, unscrupulous businesses and individuals are hijacking professionals’ voices and images, undermining the legitimate works and aspirations of essential contributors to American culture and commerce.

But AI fakes aren’t limited to famous icons. Last year, nonconsensual, intimate AI fakes of high school girls shook a New Jersey town.

Such lewd and abusive AI fakes can be generated and disseminated with ease. And without prompt action, confusion will continue to grow about what is real, undermining public trust and risking harm to reputations, integrity, and human wellbeing.   

Inconsistent State Laws Aren’t Enough

The existing patchwork of state laws needs bolstering with a federal solution that provides baseline protections, offering meaningful recourse nationwide.

The No AI FRAUD Act Provides Needed Protection

The No AI Fake Replicas and Unauthorized Duplications (No AI FRAUD) Act of 2024 builds on effective elements of state and federal law to:

·         Reaffirm that everyone’s likeness and voice is protected, giving individuals the right to control the use of their identifying characteristics.

·         Empower individuals to enforce this right against those who facilitate, create, and spread AI frauds without their permission.

·         Balance the rights against the 1st Amendment to safeguard speech and innovation.

The No AI FRAUD Act is an important and necessary step to protect our valuable and unique personal identities.

SUMMARY

No AI FRAUD Act: Protecting Individual Rights in the Age of Digital Replicas

The draft legislation titled "No Artificial Intelligence Fake Replicas and Unauthorized Duplications Act of 2024" or "No AI FRAUD Act" aims to establish individual property rights over one's likeness and voice.

 It responds to the misuse of AI technology in creating unauthorized digital replicas and voice simulations.

The Act defines individual, digital depiction, and digital voice replica, emphasizing the property rights in likeness and voice as intellectual property, transferable and descendible.

It includes provisions for authorized and unauthorized use, emphasizing consent and legal repercussions for violations, and balances these rights with First Amendment protections.

Pros:

  1. Protection of Individual Rights: The Act safeguards individuals against unauthorized use of their likeness and voice, particularly against exploitation by AI technology.

  2. Intellectual Property Recognition: Recognizes and treats voice and likeness as intellectual property, providing clear legal standing.

  3. Accountability Measures: Imposes legal consequences for unauthorized usage, acting as a deterrent against potential misuse.

Cons:

  1. Potential for Overregulation: The stringent regulations might stifle technological and creative innovation in digital media.

  2. Enforcement Challenges: The global nature of digital media may make it challenging to enforce these rights effectively.

  3. Balancing Act with First Amendment: Navigating the intersection of these rights with First Amendment freedoms could lead to complex legal disputes.

Will the Act  affect individuals and companies working legitimately with AI technology?

Possibly, the Act could impact legitimate users. Here's how:

  1. Compliance Burden: Companies and individuals working with AI must ensure strict compliance with the Act,  meaning increased legal and operational costs.

  2. Innovation Deterrent: The Act may deter innovation in AI and digital media, as creators might fear unintentional violations.

  3. Vague Definitions: If the Act has ambiguously defined terms, it might lead to confusion about what constitutes a violation, impacting legitimate AI activities.

These effects could limit the potential of AI in areas like digital art, entertainment, and even educational tools, where voice and likeness play a key role.
