A TikTok user, @aifaceai, caused a stir on social media after revealing the true identity of a seemingly attractive female streamer. The streamer was initially believed to be a beautiful woman, given her natural demeanour, and seemingly no use of beauty filters. However, when the artificial intelligence (AI) software was suddenly switched off, the viewers were left in shock as the streamer was revealed to be a middle-aged man with a square face and long hair.

“I bet you thought you were watching another live broadcast of a beautiful woman, didn’t you? No, this is just a chubby middle-aged man,” the man stated. Post the revelation of his real appearance, the man disclosed the immense advancements in AI face-swapping technology, which could even be used during video calls. At the same time, he issued a warning to viewers to be cautious of scams on the internet if they receive suspicious calls or video clips, reported Sanook.
