Authors are looking for a person who will continue to work on their technology.
The developers of the DeepNude service, which with the help of neural networks “undresses” a person in a photo, put it up for sale. As indicated on the page with the lot on the Flippa site, the authors ask for it 30 thousand dollars.
The creators said they are looking for someone who can develop the potential of technology, as well as create a safe and fun application. They sell the domain deepnude.com, a Twitter account with 23 thousand subscribers, intellectual property rights, trademark, algorithms and source codes, as well as the application itself and data for training the neural network.
On June 23, an anonymous developer launched DeepNude, which “removes” clothing from photos of women using artificial intelligence. The media found out about him three days later – after that it gained popularity in social networks.
On June 26, the authors of the application announced on their Twitter account the closure of the service. The developers clarified that they did not think that the application would become so popular. They decided that the likelihood of abuse is too high, and “the world is not yet ready for DeepNude.”
On June 28, users hacked into the premium version of DeepNude, which removes watermarks from images generated by the neural network.
