Who sAId robots couldn’t be creative? artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer the stuff of science fiction films, and now this technology is tapping into the art world. In a new paper published by NVIDIA researchers, they released photographic portraits completely generated by AI (GAN) but with a twist – none of the people in the images actually exist.
A while ago, we featured an amazing new technology that was able to remove grain and watermarks from pictures, created by Nvidia.
According to The Verge GAN was introduced in 2014. The portraits at the time were semi life-like, grainy and in black and white. Jump forward to the portrait photography simulation today, and the resemblance to a real person is so accurate that most people can’t tell the difference.
The current researchers were able to use their AI to copy the ‘styles’ of various face sources then create blends of these originals to develop completely new “people.” It took eight weeks for the researchers to train the AI, using powerful GPUs.
Yes, It took researchers 8 weeks to train the AI to learn the various ‘styles’ of faces and produce unique ‘people’.

Just because this technology is capable of creating more than just faces – It is not Surprisingly it is even able to generate ‘fake’ interiors and vehicles.
“These datasets were trained using the setup for the duration of 70M images for ‘bedroom’ and ‘cats,’ and 46M for ‘cars'”
