Thousands of AI-generated “virtual human” short videos are flooding towards mainstream social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, and X (Twitter). We have been closely monitoring hundreds of accounts that continuously use AI to create video content, with a significant portion originating from China. In order to quickly gain traffic, the operators of these accounts disclose obtaining pornographic content from search engines and generate videos in a self-narrative manner through AI virtual humans. We have found that the views on certain videos have already surpassed tens of millions. Due to the vivid portrayal of emotions by virtual humans in these videos, it is easy for uninformed viewers to mistake them for real people without careful discernment. A large number of unsuspecting audiences have commented on these videos.
Social media platforms may not completely block virtual human videos but may require creators to declare to the audience that the protagonist in the video is a virtual human. They will continue using their current content moderation policies to review these videos.
