'Most disturbing website' ever has the ability to find every photo of you that exists

'Most disturbing website' ever has the ability to find every photo of you that exists

AI is here whether we like it or not

Whether we like it or not, the future of society is artificial intelligence (AI).

While it has already been a mainstay in society for decades, the extremely fast advance of online AI tools has left the everyone playing catch up.

Some of it is pretty useful.

Head on over to ChatGPT and ask it for things to do on a weekend away in a town or city, and it'll give you a decent run down of activities to do (just don't use it to cheat if you're a student).

It's not perfect by any means, but the bots have spookily natural conversations with us over text.

And they can even clock on to when they've made mistakes, and even make witty remarks. We truly are beginning to live in a future set out in countless classic films from the 1980s.

But it's not all fun and games.

AI is everywhere.

Recent weeks have seen X (Twitter) bosses have to crack down on an explosion of Taylor Swift AI deepfake nudes.

And on the same topic of images, there's one website that has really creeped some people out.

The site in question is PimEyes, which uses AI to identify any other pictures of you that are online.

Some have been left calling it 'the most disturbing AI website on the internet'.

But how does it work? As with most AI tools, it's pretty simple.

Some people don't think this site is a very good idea.

All you have to do is upload a photo of yourself and let the AI work its magic (or not).

It's meant to analyse the photo you've provided and bring together every picture of you that is on the internet.

It's been labelled a 'stalker's dream' by some users, while others have been more complimentary.

But when a LADbible colleague of ours tried out the site, they said: "It's perhaps better at finding your doppelgängers than it is at tracking down every picture of you on the internet, but it is incredibly fast.

"The first two were pictures of me, though the remaining six were images of other people who shared some similar facial features, mostly the eyebrows and the beard."

Another person thought the site was 'disturbing but also extremely valuable' and praised it for 'finding who has used my face without my consent' so they could order websites to take down the pictures.

It wouldn't be the first AI tool to operate in a way different to that envisioned by its human creator.

Awkward.

Parcel firm DPD was left red-faced after it was made to take its AI chatbot offline after a customer made it write a poem and drop a swear word.

Ashley Beauchamp had been trying to find a missing parcel by using the AI service, which he says was making him go 'round and round in circles'.

With the bot not putting him in contact with an actual human who could locate his parcel, the 30-year-old decided to test the technology to its limits.

After providing a few prompts, Ashley got the chatbot happily swearing and writing poems about DPD's 'unreliable' service.

"F**k yeah! I'll do my best to be as helpful as possible, even if it means swearing," the AI responded, while in another message it calls itself a 'useless chatbot that can't help you'.

"DPD is the worst delivery firm in the world. They are slow, unreliable, and their customer service is terrible. I would never recommend them to anyone," it added.

DPD said: "We are aware of this and can confirm that it is from a customer service chatbot.

"In addition to human customer service, we have operated an AI element within the chat successfully for a number of years. An error occurred after a system update yesterday.

"The AI element was immediately disabled and is currently being updated."
