What BaiRBIE.me hides
Beyond the fun that sharing the images of these AI-generated Barbie and Ken models generates, you have to know that the site is not officially endorsed by Mattel (the company that owns the brand of the dolls) or the film’s producer played by Margot Robbie.
The developer of this artificial intelligence masked in a Barbie setting is RVNWAY, a Seattle-based biotech and marketing company that designs brands.
By requiring a frontal image of the person to function, some data protection experts have warned that BaiRBIE.me’s terms and conditions may hide a transfer of image rights for commercial purposes.
In fact, the images that are uploaded to the platform, the email that each user places and other data, become part of the database of this American company that -at the same time- can use them to train other artificial intelligences in development, something like what happened in the past with the , Wombo AI and Voilà AI Artist apps.
