Oh, what fun…

Have you run across the website This Person Does Not Exist? Try it. Then come back.

He explains how it works in one article and three videos: 1, 2, 3, 4.

I read the article. It was a bit technical for me to understand fully, but basically it has a module that generates faces and another that critiques them. It starts out comparing real photos to the generated ones at four pixels by four pixels. When the program gets good at that, it goes up to eight by eight. And so on to 1024 by 1024, which is the size you’ll see on screen.

I found it because someone told me they used it to create a profile pic for social media and didn’t want to use a real picture.

p.s. it sucks at cats, obviously.
