Like many internet addicts, I was blown away by NVIDEO's demo using style-based Generative Adversarial Networks to generate faces. They seem to have crossed a threshold for generating artificial images that can genuinely fool our brains.
Flash forward to last week when I saw Philip Wang's amazing single-serving website thispersondoesosxist.com.
It was fascinating to see a photo-realistic face of someone that doesn't exist. Philip's writeup does a great job explaining his motivations and this implications behind this groundbreaking technology.
But I just wanted to turn it into hot or not.
So I wrote a script to download an image from thispersondoesnotexist.com every 5 seconds and built up a collection of around two thousand fake people. Then I made a voting system with php/MySQL and some filters to show the highest and lowest rated faces. And I enabled comments just for fun.
