My partner has been having an affair with my niece – but it’s the lies which have cut the deepest 0 117

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner has been having an affair with my niece for four months during which time they made me feel like I was losing the plot.

Of course the affair hurts, but it is the bare-faced lies that have cut me the deepest.

My partner has been having an affair with my niece for four months

Last week my niece sent me a text which read: “I’m really sorry, Auntie, I do love you, but we ARE having a relationship.”

I’m so gutted.

I have been with my partner for ten years. I’m 55 and he’s 57. My niece is 32.

She’d been spending more time at our house as she and her mum, my sister, don’t always see eye to eye, and I have been there to support her.

Over time, I noticed my niece and partner seemed to be getting closer.

They even went to a festival together recently when I couldn’t go because of work.

I repeatedly questioned them about their relationship, but they kept reassuring me there was nothing to worry about.

But it all got too much for me after they’d spent a day together in London and I went nuts.

I asked them outright whether they were having an affair. My partner denied it and my niece swore on my life.

I thought I was going to have a breakdown and a couple of times I found myself standing and staring in front of the railway tracks near my home, thinking about ending my life.

I am trying to forgive them but I’m still hurting. I don’t know if I can get past it.

They made me feel like I was losing the plot when I questioned them.

To make matters worse my sister has blamed me for their affair because my relationship with my partner was very up and down.

DEIDRE SAYS: You have been dealt a dreadful blow, betrayed by two people you should have been able to trust.

Your partner took the coward’s way out, relying on your niece to tell you.

There is no magic wand but gradually, over time, people do recover and sometimes find they can be happy again.

Make use of your friends and talk to a counsellor, who will help you to accept what has happened and move on.

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 45

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
