Google Quietly Bans Deepfake Training Projects on Colab

Monday May 30, 2022. 11:30 PM , from Slashdot
Google has quietly banned deepfake projects on its Colaboratory (Colab) service, putting an end to the large-scale utilization of the platform's resources for this purpose. From a report: Colab is an online computing resource that allows researchers to run Python code directly through the browser while using free computing resources, including GPUs, to power their projects. Due to the multi-core nature of GPUs, Colab is ideal for training machine learning projects like deepfake models or for performing data analysis. Deepfakes can be trained to swap faces on video clips, adding realistic facial expressions to make the result appear genuine, although it's fake. They have been used for spreading fake news, creating revenge porn, or for fun. However, the lack of ethical limitations in their use has been the source of controversy and concern.
