The website ThisPersonDoesNotExist.com went viral this week as it can create infinite fake faces.
Phillip Wang is the developer and he uses NVIDIA-designed generative adversarial network (GAN). It is quite amazing how realistic/accurate the faces actually are.
But what’s so scary or cool about it? What can it be used for? Well, like for anything being developed these days, it depends on who uses it. For criminals, it can be used to create fake persons with fake ID’s for scams but it can also be used to create fake characters for movies or games.
