Return to Web Savvy -- Is it Credible?
Though they are completely realistic, the people below are no one in "real life."
And you can find an infinite number more of these people at This Person Does Not Exist. Every two seconds at This Person Does Not Exist, a pair of artificial intelligence programs called a StyleGAN cranks out nearly realistic human photographs. Just hit F5 or refresh the page or click Another near the bottomof the page to see the next image.
In case you find the site, disorienting or creepy, the authors suggest you learn more about StyleGAN. GAN, by the way, stands for generative adversarial network, but the links the authors provide are extremely technical. CNN Business offers an article that is easier to understand.
Of course "deep fakes," join the compny of stock photos (not an endorsement) that abound all over the net. Machine generated images are one more reason to use image tracing sites like Tineye.com and Google's image search.
