    Thanks to https://www.thispersondoesnotexist.com/, people are using the site to use the AI generated images as their profile photos.

    Actual AI Generated face of me casting judgement.

    I actually called someone out on it on Grindr this weekend I was subsequently blocked. Obviously. I loled.

    One of the tell tale signs I noticed is that the backgrounds were usually crazy or blended with the person's face. This is how I called out the guy. If you notice in this photo below, the guy's hair has some weird Ring of Saturn thing going on up there. He's attractive tho. Otherwise, there isn't much here that makes this a clear fake. One could crop out the top part and no one would know any better.

    Similar situation below; look at the top right corner. Interestingly, this guy seems to have slight heterochromia iridium (different colored eyes) here:

    It can even generate kids. This girl must have been balling out of control after the tooth fairy dropped by her house:

    You can tell this is an obvious fake, not just the background but what is going on with his glasses?

    Hey there, sirs, and or maims:

    I'm guessing that there is not a large sample size of people of color or Black people for the AI to pull from. I only got the initial photo above and this lady out of generating about 20 photos for this post:

    upload_2019-2-19_6-40-29.png

    On that note, most of them were White but, I did get some Asian and racially ambiguous people as well. It is interesting because AI is capable of separating a foreground image from the background which creates the 'portrait' style effect on photos on just a cell phone. So it's possible that this technology can mature enough where the backgrounds can either be AI generated or photo realistic CGI, thus making fakes harder to spot. This could probably happen in a very short time and with additional programming.

    Since you can't create the same exact face more than once though, I'm not sure how useful this could be but then I'm one of those people who often say "I never would have thought to do that." The truth would be revealed with asking for more photos or the IRL meet up if someone were using these for dating apps so I can see it used to talk to people who have 'no pic, no chat'. But you're obviously not going to look like the AI photo either so....anyway...

    You can read about it the site here at the Verge.com.

    Lol that first one looks like Spike Lee and Samuel L Jackson had the same grandma.

    I’m sure there is a a whole of mathematics that deals with spotting fakes on a pixel level (changes in patterns, color, metadata, etc.). I’ve been using Photoshop since the first edition and it’s anazing to see how far fake photography has advanced since then.

    I remember seeing fake propaganda photos that the Soviets/Russians and Libya’s Ghadafi generated prior to the digital age and they were pretty laughable compared to AI. Wonder what the implications for security biometrics is?

    This doesn't affect me at all. My default position has always been that everyone that looks attractive on the apps are catfishing until I get proof otherwise.

    It's complicated
    What is the name of the app that dudes use on the dating apps to add muscles to their physique but when you meet them in person, they have arms like Sherri Shepherd?

    This is wild. The first pic looks like Lee Daniels in a Madea filter.
