Fake images progress

Be the 1st to vote.

This is from 2017. So much can happen in a few years. There is no way to know real from fake.

Thank goodness the controllers are obliged to tell us with code that they’re faking it.

No point in using real people – sims are so hard to find

I’m not sure why they use fuzzy fake sims for hoax events, when clear, crisp sims are available at a mouse click.

I am certain it makes no sense at all to use real people.

The ability of AI to generate fake visuals is not yet mainstream knowledge, but a new website — ThisPersonDoesNotExist.com — offers a quick and persuasive education. The site is the creation of Philip Wang, a software engineer at Uber, and uses research released last year by chip designer Nvidia to create an endless stream of fake portraits. The algorithm behind it is trained on a huge dataset of real images, then uses a type of neural network known as a generative adversarial network (or GAN) to fabrica

“EXPLAINING” the transparent Apollo 11 ass-true-nots

It is quite amusing (or tragicomical) to read the various “explanations” offered by self-professed film/video experts for the transparent Apollo 11 asstronots…

Deepfakes for dummies

The scene opened on a room with a red sofa, a potted plant and the kind of bland modern art you’d see on a therapist’s wall. In the room was Michelle Obama, or someone who looked exactly like her.

Get up-to-date, news fakers

Be the 1st to vote.

Really old green screen backdrops shows how lazy or sloppy the “news” is. This backdrop is more than 20 years old. Amusing it’s a media type who actually noticed his fake news bretheren.

I am still amazed this Russia farce has legs. It’s literally a Seinfeld show for the news… a show about nothing.

No need to use real people as models and dress them up later to hide them. Just use NVIDIA’s latest software. (h/t Simon)

Imagine playing a game like Skyrim or a sports title where the characters you encounter look like real people or creatures, and not rendered graphics. If implemented correctly, it could add a new level of immersion to gaming. It may not be far off, either. NVIDIA released a paper over the weekend detailing a new training methodology for generating unique and realistic looking faces using a generative adversarial network (GAN).

Coincidentally, NVIDIA was recently mentioned for autonomous cars.

Untouched or photoshop? The real or fake debate comes up from time to time. This falls under the half-truth debate – if half is true, does that make the who thing fake?

These are real men (I think) but are they really posing high up without safety harnesses? I think not.
