AI generates fake faces on website

This person does not exist: AI generates fake faces on website. From the article:

If you visit the This Person Does Not Exist website, you’ll be greeted by a seemingly simple portrait. Reload the page, and another face will pop onto your screen. These people, however, do not exist in the real world.

Website here: www.thispersondoesnotexist.com - so far, all faces, when I clicked, were random, and most seemed quite real.

Outside video games, what is the utility of such software?

Don't google deepfake.

This means, people now can produce "personal content" using anyone's FB/IG profiles and you will never find out.

Pretty crazy if this is actually what's happening but I have my doubts to be honest.

That said if you refresh to get a new image, and keep doing it you'll eventually start to see bugs in the AI. Look very closely at the hairlines, sometimes it just looks off or sometimes at the edge of a persons face you'll see a weird discoloured circular shape.

Pretty crazy either way.

You can get some pretty bad images. It looks like it's actually piecing together images rather than generating a new one wholesale. I've seen some where the arms of glasses disappear into the corner of someone's eyes, or they have a hand touching their face but it's an amorphous blob of jelly. You can easily see lots of artifacts and bugs around most of the images. Some of the fails are nightmare inducing actually.

This is really scary. I am not going to entertain what insidious implications this has but you would be naieve to think it won't be used in that manner.

Are those images copyrighted?
If not, I guess it's OK to use them for websites, mock-ups, testing your skills in Photoshop or Lightroom, or whatever.

Conan O'Brien had this technology in 2004.

Was I the only one expecting a rant because not enough white people were being randomly generated by the algorithm on that website?

Ya, OP's slipping lol.
