Recently, the Generated Photos team released the AI Anonymizer (New face generator), an online platform that produces a fake look that helps secure your identity online. Twitter, regarded as a social media site hungry for memes and absurdity, happily took a new toy and began exploring it with strength and power.
How It Started
We also created Anonymizer to demonstrate what AI can do to help people secure their biometrics in the ‘dangerous’ online environment. But it soon turned out that preserving privacy is not a top priority for users on Twitter. The Twitter audience is by nature highly curious. So they uploaded various images, asked why Anonymizer was sending back some strange results, wondered how it worked, experimented with it, and made some pretty good jokes.
So, here is what we’ve discovered so far.
A Younger Version of Yourself and Family Motifs
One of the hot topics is being treated like a little kid. Again!
There may be two plausible theories here:
- AI sees a person’s inner child glow in the presence of an adult.
It may be the product of a selfie taken at a near distance or/and an odd angle of the head.
- Honestly speaking, my brain’s right hemisphere prefers the first while the left hemisphere and the whole ML squad favor the second.
There’s another explanation for fun, too: often you get a bunch of results that Anonymizer users find to look like some kind of family.
Fun Must Go On
Just look at Twitter users having their best time with not only their own personalities.
Or some avatars generated by Anonymizer reminded users of someone famous.
Inner Beauty Revealer Mode
“Looks like me when I was 20,” “Got a bunch of my younger siblings,” “Ah, good old days”—people report that the outcomes they get always remind them of their younger siblings or any distant relatives they may have.
Most consumers regret that the results they receive are, in their own view, far more appealing than they really are.
Inner Beaty Revealer – that’s what we call the element. We say, in unison, that one of Anonymizer’s main forces is the ability to see the secret light. Think you should shield your inner beauty from AI? Nah, oh, there is no way. It’s so bright.
New Jobs, New You
After evaluating your identity and comparing it to the photos accumulated in the databases, AI Anonymizer will give you a new identity. It might be an echo of your previous incarnations, or the instrument might expose one of your unfulfilled career directions.
Also, some approached the tool with a sort of business-like mood.
Artifacts and Creepy Vibes
Besides producing the synthetic looks, AI Anonymizer also creates a lot of strange things. Since the machine is always learning, there are a variety of items that it doesn’t read correctly.
For eg, they don’t understand how hats work. AI wants to see a lot of them to better produce hats. And there are so many different hats that it’s actually a lot easier to make faces than hats!
Sometimes it doesn’t understand glasses, too…
Sometimes AI gets too creative and thinks out things that mustn’t exist.
Thank You, Twitter People!
Seriously, guys, thank you all who put all the cases on Twitter! And particularly those of you who shared photographs that were very similar to your actual photos and used them as avatars. It means we have a planet and realize that it functions in a manner that we intended it to be.
Fresh Anonymizer Fun collections are arriving fast, it seems like that’s unavoidable. Test it on your own and have fun!
