British singer-songwriter FKA Twigs just revealed that she developed a deepfake AI of herself, dubbed ‘AI Twigs,’ to better interact with fans.

Tahliah Barnett — who goes by the FKA Twigs alias — broke the news about the deepfake AI in a recent senate hearing.

The artist says that she developed the AI to take a stand on the role of AI in the creative space.

That’s certainly an interesting way to do it.

FKA Twigs says the deepfake AI is completely under her control and can mimic her personality and voice.

“In the past year, I have developed my own deepfake version of myself that is not only trained in my personality but also can use my exact tone of voice to speak many languages,” Twigs mentioned in a written statement.

As everyone is using artificial intelligence to employ human-like AI assistants for specific tasks, the practice is becoming prominent.

Further, the singer plans to use AI Twigs to reach and interact with her fans.

How is she going to do that, you may ask?

FKA Twigs will integrate the AI with her social media handles and give it control over interacting with fans.

Twigs added, “I will be engaging my AI twigs later this year to extend my reach and handle my online social media interactions, whilst I continue to focus on my art from the comfort and solace of my studio.

“These and similar emerging technologies are highly valuable tools both artistically and commercially when under the control of the artist.”

Musk recently predicted the time when AI becomes smarter than humans might be closer than we think.

If the current trajectory continues, we might see many more deepfake AI celebs across the internet.

What’s more, FKA Twigs is not alone in this venture.

The artist spoke about AI in the testimony behind the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee in Washington, D.C.

There, she took the stand with Warner Music Group CEO Robert Kyncl.

The duo revealed their concern regarding the NO FAKES Act proposal.

This latest government proposal aims to defend American identities from AI-generated deepfakes.

It can be quite a task for anyone to make out the difference between a deepfake and a real person at times.

But, Twigs said that she isn’t necessarily against the technology.

Instead, she wants to leverage it and delegate some of her work to it, leaving her free to focus on her music.

Since there are a lot more AI deepfakes than ever before, it’s important to be wary of any deepfakes produced without consent.

The music industry — among other creative ones — can be quite affected by aggressive deepfakes.

Seeing how AI Twigs interacts with the artist’s fans will certainly be interesting.
