The most popular and weirdest technology these days is AI software generating faces which look like real faces but are not actually real.
These deep fake faces are a blessing for scamsters and an unpleasant nightmare for unsuspecting internet users.
A website, which perfectly goes by the name ‘This Person Does Not Exist’, has a bunch of deepfake faces which seem so real, you can just question your own existence.
Using a neural network algorithm, the website has generated faces. These faces look hyper-realistic, but none of those faces is of humans who exist.
It only happens when you look very closely that you realize the flaws, such as the shape of patchy skin texture, blurred outlines, and further.
Every time the neural network algorithm codes a facial image from scratch, you punch refresh.
On YCombinator, Philip Wang, the Creator explained that he made the site to boost awareness for what the talented group of researchers made at Nvidia over the course of 2 years.
The latest technology uses the state-of-the-art generative adversarial network, StyleGAN of Nvidia. The researchers have also authorized the software to bring out faces for cats, cars, even bedrooms.
