Sharing photos of your kids? Maybe not after you watch this deepfake ad

A new AI-generated video ad campaign amassing millions of views on social media may make many parents reconsider what information they share publicly about their children. The Deutsche Telekom video uses the latest artificial intelligence technology to virtually age a 9-year-old they call Ella, played by an actor, in order to illustrate how a child's digital footprint can potentially be misused to damage their lives. "Once an image is shared online, it can be hard to control where it ends up," explained Dr. Rebecca Portnoff, director of data science at Thorn, a nonprofit that fights the spread of child sexual abuse online, in an interview with ABC News.
