Charges: Wisconsin software engineer uses AI and creates trove of 'realistic images' of child porn

A software engineer from western Wisconsin used his artificial intelligence skills to produce hundreds, if not thousands, of images of child pornography and sent some of them to a teenage boy, according to the U.S. Justice Department.

Steven Anderegg, 42, of Onalaska, was indicted by a grand jury in U.S. District Court on charges of producing, distributing and possessing obscene visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct and then transferring some of the material to a 15-year-old boy.

Anderegg, who was charged earlier this year in state court with sexually assaulting a minor, remains in federal custody pending a detention hearing on Wednesday.
