Netflix accused of ‘psychological AI torture’ over sinister TV show that 'deepfakes' casts’ partners in cheating videos | The Sun

NETFLIX has a new reality show called Falso Amor and it's causing controversy for its use of deepfakes.

The title of the Spanish-language show translates to "Deep Fake Love" and makes use of the latest artificial intelligence technology.

The contestants are real-life couples who are split up and put in two separate houses.

Single people looking for love are added to the houses.

Then, contestants are made to watch videos that show their partners cheating on them.

The videos may be real or they may be really convincing deepfakes.

To win, couples need to make sure they guess correctly what footage is real and what is fake.

The couple with the most correct guesses can win €100,000 (about $110,500).

Viewers of the TV series have given it mixed reviews online.

News outlet Futurism said: "We would not wish this psychological torture on anyone."

"You're not even going to even be able to believe your eyes after a while cause of deep fakes getting better."
