Mashable

This content originally appeared on Mashable for a US audience and has been adapted for the UK audience. Online dating as a lesbian, for the most part, still involves having your space invaded by straight people. The heteronormative weirdness got so alienating that lesbians began turning to TikTok(Opens in a new window) as a means of meeting other single lesbians -- turns out, it's a pretty good matchmaker. But it's unrealistic to expect a social media app to work like a dating app for everyone. It's hard for some of us to comprehend, but not everyone spends every free minute on TikTok.


The best gay dating apps for hookups, serious relationships, and everything else

Mashable

This content originally appeared on Mashable for a US audience and has been adapted for the UK audience. Most people have at least one horror story about online dating. It's a rite of passage that single people love to hate. But the horror stories look a little different for members of the LGBTQ community. On top of the classic awkward Hinge date anecdotes and screenshots of a corny bio seeping with secondhand embarrassment, gay singles deal with all sorts of alienating interactions.


Google AI can create music in any genre from a text description

Engadget

Google recently published research on MusicLM, a system that creates music in any genre with a text description. As TechCrunch notes, projects like Google's AudioML and OpenAI's Jukebox have tackled the subject. However, MusicLM's model and vast training database (280,000 hours of music) help it produce music with surprising variety and depth. The AI can not only combine genres and instruments, but write tracks using abstract concepts that are normally difficult for computers to grasp. If you want a hybrid of dance music and reggaeton with a "spacey, otherworldly" tune that evokes a "sense of wonder and awe," MusicLM can make it happen.

Louisiana Jeffrey Dahmer copycat sentenced for Grindr dating app scheme to kidnap, murder men

FOX News

On a recent episode of Dr. Phil, the host spoke with some of Jeffrey Dahmer's victims and showed them an interview he filmed with the father of one of America's most infamous serial killers. A 21-year-old Louisiana man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison after plotting a Jeffrey Dahmer-like scheme to meet men on the gay dating app Grindr and kill them, according to federal officials. Chance Seneca of Lafayette Parish targeted one particular victim, as well as other gay men, through the app in 2020 because of their sexual orientation and gender, the Justice Department said. "The facts of this case are truly shocking, and the defendant's decision to specifically target gay men is a disturbing reminder of the unique prejudices and dangers facing the LGBTQ community today," Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division said in a Wednesday statement. Clarke continued: "The internet should be accessible and safe for all Americans, regardless of their gender or sexual orientation. We will continue to identify and intercept the predators who weaponize online platforms to target LGBTQ victims and carry out acts of violence and hate."


Deepfakes: Faces created by AI now look more real than genuine photos

#artificialintelligence

Even if you think you are good at analyzing faces, research shows many people cannot reliably distinguish between photos of real faces and images that have been computer-generated. This is particularly problematic now that computer systems can create realistic-looking photos of people who don't exist. Recently, a fake LinkedIn profile with a computer-generated profile picture made the news because it successfully connected with US officials and other influential individuals on the networking platform, for example. Counter-intelligence experts even say that spies routinely create phantom profiles with such pictures to home in on foreign targets over social media. These deep fakes are becoming widespread in everyday culture which means people should be more aware of how they're being used in marketing, advertising and social media.
