Artificial intelligence: a stake in feminist battles

The rapid expansion of A.I. in our daily lives brings about major challenges, such as deepfakes. These manipulated videos, often featuring explicit content, primarily target women. With no legal framework in place, what can be done to protect victims ?

Digitalisation, algorithms and artificial intelligence are now an integral part of our daily lives. However, scientific progress, which is far more rapid than social progress, means that we need to pause for a moment and consider the appropriate regulation of our technological tools. Current aberrations, such as deepfakes, pose a serious challenge. These tools can be used to generate falsified videos, from political speeches to music videos, 95% of which are pornographic, mainly featuring women. As well as being objectified, victims are exposed to cyber-harassment, thereby exposing them to an unacceptable level of vulnerability. Given the legal vacuum surrounding deepfakes, what can be done to curb the practice and protect victims?

Another Body

Another Body tells the story of Taylor, an American student who is a victim of deepfake. She recounts how, one day, she discovered that her face was being used in pornographic content. As she searches for the author of these videos, she becomes immersed in the world of deepfakes and discovers how technology is used to harm and oppress women. More than simply shedding light on the excesses of artificial intelligence, the film allows Taylor to tell her story and reclaim her identity.
