This Person Does Not Exist...

This is interesting but also creepy.

This site generates photos of people. None of the people exist. It's often hard to tell from the photos though!

It uses a GAN (Generated Adversarial Network), a system which basically involves two AIs (one generating images, one testing them) working against each other to progressively improve the overall output. The results are very effective. This does in turn create some worrying implications like with a lot of visual AI stuff - not being able to trust that people in photos/video are real and doing what it looks like they're doing is unnerving, if inevitable.

Well we can see them so they must exist.

We're already living in a simulation.
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.
