These Portraits Were Made by AI: None of These People Exist
Check out these rather ordinary looking portraits. They’re all fake. Not in the sense that they were Photoshopped, but rather they were completely generated by artificial intelligence. That’s right: none of these people actually exist.

NVIDIA researchers have published a new paper on easily customizing the style of realistic faces created by a generative adversarial network (GAN).

The Verge points out that GAN has only existed for about four years. In less than half a decade, the realism has improved to the point where most people might not be able to tell the portraits are fake, even when examining them up close.

NVIDIA researchers are now able to copy the “styles” of source faces onto destination faces, creating blends that have copied features but which look like entirely new people.

This technology seems to have the potential to disrupt the world of photography. It’s by no means limited to generating faces — it can also create everything from fake interior real estate photos.
