In one of the recent public announcements, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has shared an important warning against the use of AI-generated Po*n. The FBI has released a PSA in which it expressly cautions people against creating child sexual abuse materials (CSAM) using generative AI techniques.

The FBI alerted the public that it is unlawful to produce child po*nography using AI. The FBI stated in their notice that it is unlawful to use content manipulation technology, such as generative artificial intelligence (AI), to create child sexual assault material.

According to the official press release, Federal law prohibits the production, advertisement, transportation, distribution, receipt, sale, access with intent to view, and possession of any CSAM, including realistic computer-generated images.

Misuse of Artificial Intelligence

To begin with, what precisely qualifies as AI misuse? In short, the misuse of artificial intelligence happens when individuals or organizations employ AI for malicious purposes. Apart from this, people who intentionally utilize the content for harmful and unethical purposes, such as invading privacy, or banning online networks are directly responsible for the misuse of AI.

The so-called "deepfakes" are among the most prominent and dangerous instances of AI abuse. The phrase, which combines the terms "Fake media" and "Deep learning," refers to AI models that produce false media, including audio, video, and image manipulation. Several people get involved in malicious activities to harm certain individuals or groups by blackmailing or stealing their money, like by creating fake po*nography videos and using them for negative purposes.
