This Website Generates... People. Yep, None of Them Are Real.

Alright... there's no other way to say this other than "woah." It helps if you say it in your best Keanu Reeves impression.

There's a website called ThisPersonDoesNotExist - and it uses artificial intelligence to create fake images of people. Yup, that's right - it endlessly generates photos of people who, uh, aren't actual people.

The site was created by Philip Wang, who's a software engineer at Uber. Here's how it works: it uses research released by computer chip manufacturer Nvidia to create the fake portraits. They say that the algorithm behind the process is based on real images, then uses what they call a "neutral network" to create new examples.

The network (called a "generative adversarial network" - or GAN) is open source and can theoretically be made to mimic anything. Yeah, technology is cool and all... but this borders on creepy.

Check out the video below for some pretty amazing (and scary, in a way) samples.

 

And be sure to visit the site - and check out how many random faces (of not real people!) you can generate.
