    Project mention: Voice-changer apps designed to mitigate the threat of AI? | | 2023-05-21

    There is a great tool called Fawkes that allows you to modify pictures of your face in a visually undetectable way, enough to thwart AI algorithms and mitigate the risk of your face being used for fraudulent purposes. Well, I'm looking for a tool of the same kind that does the same thing with your voice, in real-time, during calls, using a separate app from the one doing the calls. I know there are plenty of voice-changer apps, but Fawkes was created because simply modifying an image using simple tools is not enough, and the same applies to the vast array of voice-changer apps available. I'm looking for one that is specifically designed to combat AI, as with Fawkes, and doesn't change your voice in any way that a human can detect. I'm not looking for a tool that anonimizes my voice from other people, but from AI. Does such an app exist? Context: The AI Dilemma, Tristan Harris and Aza Raskin, Center for Humane Technology (YT)

  • Social-Amnesia

    Forget the past. Social Amnesia makes sure your social media accounts only show your posts from recent history, not from "that phase" 5 years ago.

    Project mention: Best Simple Security Practices for Protecting Self and Tendies - Final Repost for Visibility! | | 2023-01-19

    - Visit [r / NukeRedditHistory] for a lovely little extension that will replace old comments/posts and then delete them (this is no longer available as a browser extension. Please check for FOSS alternatives). Here are a few replacements that I will try over the next few weeks and update: Shreddit, PowerDeleteSuite, and Social-Amnesia. Not only should you do this currently every now and then, but especially post squeeze! I use this often.

    Project mention: Help me spread the word, or at least play with a free toy | | 2023-03-21

    I am an entrepreneur trying to get a movement going to really start using this tech at big corporations to keep them out of trouble. I am guessing the conversation in here is a little more abstract than my usual day-to-day (although I am a reformed mathematician) but I wanted to introduce myself nonetheless.

    If anybody is interested we maintain a software library, implemented in Python, that is designed to let relatively everyday people (software engineers, data scientists, etc.) use these privacy-enhancing techniques in a familiar interface without a rocket science course. If you go to the GitHub page I link below there is a Binder server where you can play with it right now via a Jupyter notebook over the web with basically no work or commitment.

    I also put a ton of content out on LinkedIn, mostly oriented towards why businesses should adopt these things, what to do with them, and how they relate to other trends.

    I would greatly appreciate engagement of any kind: test-drivers, early-adopters, complainers, design feedback, likes, reshares, stars, emails. I am a true believer trying to this tech out where it can do some good and I need to spread the word.
