This Popular Photo app can Exploit Your Selfies However it Wants
Photo apps like Lensa AI utilize artificial intelligence to produce enhanced portraits from user selfies, but these apps often stake deep ownership claims to all of the images they generate, and a persons likeness may be uploaded without their knowledge or consent.
"Such apps use AI models trained on images scraped from the internet, uploaded by people who never [...] intended that their photos be processed in this way. Users of such apps then upload pictures of themselves [...] and those pictures will be used to further refine the underlying model for future users."
Irina Raicu, director, internet ethics, quoted by Laptop Magazine.
