Deepfakes are the most concerning use of AI for crime and terrorism, according to a new report from University College London. The research team first identified 20 different ways AI could be used by criminals over the next 15 years. They then asked 31 AI experts to rank them by risk, based on their potential for harm, the money they could make, their ease of use, and how hard they are to stop. Deepfakes — AI-generated videos of real people doing and saying fictional things — earned the top spot for two major reasons. Firstly, they’re hard to identify and… This story continues at The Next Web

Hi! Welcome to the Advertising Insider daily for July 30. I'm Lauren Johnson, a senior advertising reporter at Business Insider.

Walmart is pushing harder into advertising with a new tool that shows if people buy a product after seeing an ad for it Walmart is steadily building an internal advertising business to rival Amazon and is launching a measurement tool that tracks sales after someone sees an ad. Jeff Clark, VP of product and product marketing at Walmart Media Group, told me that the new tool is Walmart's first step in building an ad manager akin to the software that advertisers use to buy ads on Amazon, Facebook, and Google. He also said that the number of advertisers who have participated in Walmart's eight-month-old advertising API has increased by fivefold but did not say how many total advertisers are in the program. Read the full story here. Lawmakers question the CEOs of Apple, Google, Facebook, and Amazon The CEOs of Facebook, Google, Apple, and Amazon testified in front of the US House of Representatives' Antitrust Subcommittee yesterday over concerns that the tech companies hold too much control. The executives pushed back on the antitrust concerns: Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg said that for every $1 spent on US advertising, Facebook makes 10 cents; Tim Cook from Apple said that its app store is a fair playing field for all developers; Amazon's Jeff Bezos said that its marketplace does not crush third-party sellers; and Alphabet's Sundar Pichai said Google's search algorithms do not favor its own content. Amazon's Bezos added that he could not guarantee that a policy prohibiting Amazon from using seller data to inform its private-label brands has not been violated. Read the full story here. The 31 top power players helping CEO Evan Spiegel run Snap Tanya Dua and Paige Leskin identified the top leaders at Snap, which has made a comeback from challenges a couple years ago. The executives include chief business officer Jeremi Gordon, VP of Americas Peter Naylor, VP of global operations Radhika Kakkar, and VP of US advertiser solutions Luke Kallis who help run Snap's advertising business.

Photo by Chaim Gartenberg / The Verge Form is releasing an update today for its smart augmented reality swim goggles that enable them to pair over Bluetooth to selected GPS smartwatches, allowing users to track their swims in real time in open water, not just in swimming pools. The $199 Form goggles were released last year, and offered a unique method of tracking swimming metrics by using motion sensors and an AR display built into the goggles itself. But the system — while clever enough to work independently from a smartphone — was still limited to only tracking laps in pools where you already knew the size and distance you were traveling, using the onboard sensors and algorithms to figure out when you turned at the end of a lap or stopped. The new update changes that,... Continue reading…

Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak has filed a complaint against YouTube over an ongoing bitcoin scam using his image and likeness as well as those of other tech executives. The lawsuit comes after several high-profile executives, celebrities, and politicians had their accounts taken over as part of a bitcoin scam on Twitter. The complaint accuses YouTube of hosting such videos for months, defrauding YouTube users out of millions of dollars. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak has joined a lawsuit against YouTube over a bitcoin scheme that uses his image and likeness to trick unknowing viewers into sending bitcoin to the scammer, according to a complaint filed with the state of California on July 21. The lawsuit comes just after several high-profile tech executives, politicians, and celebrities — including Tesla CEO Elon Musk and former president Barack Obama — were the victims of a Twitter hack in which their accounts were taken over by a scammer asking for bitcoin donations. Bloomberg first reported the Wozniak lawsuit, which was filed in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of San Mateo. The scam uses images and video of Wozniak to convince users to send bitcoin in order to receive twice as much back as part of a bitcoin giveaway, according to the lawsuit. YouTube has been hosting such videos for months and defrauded YouTube users our of millions of dollars, the lawsuit claims. Wozniak isn't the only tech figure whose likeness has appeared in such videos; the lawsuit shows screenshots of similar videos featuring images of Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates, Musk, and Dell chairman and CEO Michael Dell. It's unclear who's behind the schemes. The complaint focuses on YouTube's handling of the videos, which have proliferated across the platform often from multiple scammers.  YouTube has been unresponsive to Wozniak's requests to take action against such videos, according to the complaint. The lawsuit lists 17 other plaintiffs alongside Wozniak, all victims of cryptocurrency scams on YouTube from around the world. "We take abuse of our platform seriously, and take action quickly when we detect violations of our policies, such as scams or impersonation," a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement to Business Insider.  The complaint draws numerous references to the recent Twitter hack, which was executed after hackers obtained access to internal Twitter tools. The social media company took action immediately by temporarily blocking verified users from tweeting and locking the accounts of affected users. More than 100 accounts were affected by the Twitter hack, and the company recently said that the hackers had downloaded complete data from eight of them, and private messages from 36. The scammers are also said to have came away with more than $100,000 from the scheme. "In stark contrast to YouTube, when faced with this attack, Twitter took swift and decisive action to protect its users, shutting down the hijacked accounts until Twitter regained control," the lawsuit reads.  The complaint also criticizes YouTube for relying on Section 230, the portion of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 that prevents social media companies for being held liable for the content posted by users of their platforms. The company cited Section 230 when dismissing another lawsuit against it by Ripple Labs, according to Bloomberg Law. "While Section 230 has played, and continues to play, a vital and important role in ensuring free and open expression and debate on the Internet with a minimum of government regulation, these fraudulent videos and YouTube's ongoing, knowing, and active participation in their promotion, fall well outside of the immunity from liability that Section 230 provides," the complaint says.  YouTube has policies in place that prohibit impersonating other people or channels and spreading spam and scams. The company's transparency report also says it took down 2.2 million videos in the first quarter of 2020 over spam, misleading content, and scams. SEE ALSO: The unprecedented Twitter hack that targeted Barack Obama, Elon Musk, and others may be part of a larger, more ominous attack, experts say Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: What makes 'Parasite' so shocking is the twist that happens in a 10-minute sequence
