14-Year-Old Becomes A Victim Of Deepfake AI-Generated Porn

Westfield High School student Francesca Mani has come forth with her mother Dorota to address AI-generated pornographic images that she says were manipulated and shared of her and other female classmates over the summer.

According to CNN, the 14-year-old is calling for federal legislation to protect victims of AI-generated porn.

“In this situation, there was some boys or a boy — that’s to be determined — who created, without the consent of the girls, inappropriate images,” Dorota told the outlet on Nov. 4.

The student and her mother are looking for the school and local and state government officials to take accountability for the situation.

“At this time, we believe that any created images have been deleted and are not being circulated. This is a very serious incident.”

“All school districts are grappling with the challenges and impact of artificial intelligence and other technology available to students at any time and anywhere,” Superintendent Dr. Raymond González said in a statement.

On April 27, NPR reported that policymakers have already addressed concerns regarding nonconsensual deepfake pornography.

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, deepfake is an image or recording that has been convincingly altered and manipulated to misrepresent someone as doing or saying something that was not actually done or said.

“Laws and regulation will have to play a role, at least in some of the highest-risk areas,” said WilmerHale attorney, Matthew Ferraro, who is an expert in legal issues around AI.

Ten states, including Texas and California have already created policies that ban deepfakes, especially pornography. The European Union has already stepped into action with the creation of the AI Act to set rules and regulations on how AI can be used.
