filmmaker uses ai to visualize thousands of leaked passwords

UK filmmaker Daniel McKee has created a unique film called “Password123” as a music video for London-based musician HOWE, and if you look carefully, you might see one of your online passwords featured.

McKee’s film visualizes real passwords leaked on the dark web from some of the most severe data breaches of the past decade. Each password was then run through the text-to-image ai DALL-E 2.

“Password123” offers a rare glimpse into user habits and highlights keyboard patterns such as “QWERTY” to the names of loved ones, pets, memorable dates, sports teams, and places.

Daniel handpicked passwords from an enormous 32GB file of 847,223,403 entries. To protect user privacy, names, addresses, and emails have been edited.

“We share these secret phrases with computers daily, and they occupy a special place in our minds. I wanted to see how an AI would reveal them as images,” explained Daniel.

McKee’s film serves as an important reminder of the importance of strong passwords in an age when data breaches are becoming increasingly common. To check if your information has been compromised in a past data breach, check out the helpful haveibeenpwned.com website.

After launching the generative AI model Firefly last year, Adobe is now showcasing how the technology will be used in upcoming versions of the editing app Premiere Pro. In an early sneak peek, the company demonstrated several new features, including Object Addition and Removal, Generative Extend, and Text to Video.

The first new feature, Generative Extend, targets a common video editing problem by using AI to “Seamlessly add frames to make clips longer, so it’s easier to perfectly time edits and add smooth transitions”.

Meanwhile, Premiere Pro’s Object Addition & Removal tool will leverage Firefly’s generative AI to “Simply select and track objects, then replace them. Remove unwanted items, change an actor’s wardrobe or quickly add set dressings such as a painting or photorealistic flowers on a desk,” Adobe states.

Adobe also showcased another new feature that can automatically generate new film clips using a text prompt. To use the content creation tool, editors can “Simply type text into a prompt or upload reference images. These clips can be used to ideate and create storyboards, or to create B-roll for augmenting live action footage,” Adobe explained. The company seems to be commercializing this particular feature extremely quickly, considering generative AI video only appeared a few months ago.

The new additions to Premiere Pro will be added later this year, but Adobe is also introducing smaller improvements to the editing app in May. The changes include interactive fade handles to enable easier transitions, an Essential Sound badge that uses AI to “automatically tag audio clips as dialogue, music, sound effects or ambience, and add a new icon so editors get one-click, instant access to the right controls for the job”, along with effect badges and a new look for waveforms in the timeline.
