- 'This Person Does Not Exist' website creates images of fake humans.
- The website produces a fake image every time it is refreshed.
- It works by utilising Nvidia’s StyleGAN algorithm that was published back in December 2018.
Humanity have come a long way in developing new and interesting uses for Artificial Intelligence-based systems. From learning user habits to optimising a smartphone’s performance, to beating human players in complex games like Dota 2, scientists have found multiple places where AI can be deployed. Last year in December, Nvidia published a paper that detailed a new architecture for Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN). This allowed for the creation of a website called 'This Person Does Not Exist', which as the name suggests, produces images of people that do not exist. The images of people that you see in this article have been created by an AI and do not exist in real life. This great but slightly creepy and bizarre example of AI and Deep Learning was set up by Philip Wang, who is a software engineer at Uber. Since its inception, the website has gone viral and has been visited more than 4.2 million times.
