According to the The Verge, users can find the bot’s name on the Search toolbar on Telegram. In addition, the Sensity (Netherlands) report also explains that this situation is created with AI, they can remove most of the character’s clothes.
What’s scary about this bot?
Sensity says what makes this bot scary is easy to use as it only asks the user to upload a picture of a woman, clicking a few buttons. It then uses AI to determine what is underneath the garment and produces a nudity. Giorgio Patrini, CEO of Sensity and co-author of the report told CNET: “Compared to similar underground tools, bots significantly increase accessibility by offering users free and simple, operating on smartphones as well as traditional computers. To” split “one image, users just need to upload the photo of the target to the bot and receive the processed image after a short creation process “.

Giorgio Patrini says the act of taking personal photos and turning nude is relatively new, putting anyone with a social media account at risk. The bot administrator (known as P) told the BBC that the service was purely for entertainment and it was “not invasive”. It’s impossible to be sure what admin says is true, because the bot network, where fake nudity is made and shared, has more than 100,000 members, mostly in Russia or Eastern Europe. It is difficult to control the behavior of each team member.
When we try to activate the bot, it introduces every girl’s ability to undress with just a photo and the viewer gets her body (completely unblurred).
