Nvidia’s Scary AI Generates Humans That Look 100% Real

Nvidia’s Scary AI Generates Humans That Look 100% Real

ok 100% Real, Jesus Diaz · Freelance Writer Updated Dec 17, 2018

Believe it or not, all these faces are fake. They have been synthesized by Nvidia’s new AI algorithm, a generative adversarial network capable of automagically creating humans, cats, and even cars.

The technology works so well that we can expect synthetic image search engines soon — just like Google’s, but generating new fake images on the fly that look real. Yes, you know where that is going — and sure, it can be a lot of fun, but also scary. Check out the video. It truly defies belief:

According to Nvidia, its GAN is built around a concept called “style transfer.” Rather than trying to copy and paste elements of different faces into a frankenperson, the system analyzes three basic styles — coarse, middle, and fine styles — and merges them transparently into something completely new.

Coarse styles include parameters such as pose, the face’s shape, or the hair style. Middle styles include facial features, like the shape of the nose, cheeks, or mouth. Finally, fine styles affect the color of the face’s features like skin and hair.

According to the scientists, the generator is “capable of separating inconsequential variation from high-level attributes” too, in order to eliminate noise that is irrelevant for the new synthetic face.

For example, it can distinguish a hairdo from the actual hair, eliminating the former while applying the latter to the final photo. It can also specify the strength of how styles are applied to obtain more or less subtle effects.

Actually, I was referring to the photos of the digitally rendered female that JJ posted...

I wondered that myself - too much eggnog this time of year can be a prelude to some really poor judgment.
If you drink so much alcohol that hillary starts looking like a hundred bucks - you need to go and drink a WHOLE lot more eggnog before you act on it.


We are talking about a LOT of eggnog...
...sooooo much eggnog


Some of you folks really need to pay attention to your alcohol content in the coming weeks before you find yourself having to chew your arm off when you wake up next to a Sleestak

Sorry, I looked at the picture and thought Hillary had gotten a makeover, turns out its just a pig with lipstick.

My apologies to the entire ham/bacon/pork chop supply line for associating them with Felonia.
