The Daily Dot: New website will endlessly generate fake faces thanks to AI

A new website that utilizes artificial intelligence can endlessly generate the faces of people who don’t actually exist.

The site, simply titled, is possible thanks to machine learning algorithms recently released by technology company Nvidia.

The AI works by analyzing countless photos of the human face in order to generate realistic ones of its own. While creating such images initially required advanced computer hardware and specific knowledge, the process is now widely available thanks to the site.

Philip Wang, a software engineer at Uber and creator of the website, told Motherboard that the new service is designed to “dream up a random face every two seconds.”
