The relentless stampede of Artificial Intelligence will soon obviate the need for photographers and models. NVIDIA, a Silicon Valley company best known for making graphics processing units for video games has developed a way to generate very realistic images of fake people by means of what’s called a generative adversarial network (GAN).
GANs are a class of AI algorithms used in unsupervised machine learning, executed by a system of two neural networks contesting with each other in a zero-sum game framework. These images took 8 days to process.
Why am I struck by the sense that humans are engineering their own redundancy?
This is going to be “Wag The Dog” on hyper-steroids!
Kinda like CLONING, Huh?…AI gone Bonkers (Laugh!!!)
Fake People, nothing new with the term. But now with the “fake people” won’t they also start having fake conversations? And posting on Facebook , and YouTube, as well as Twitter? For more controlling conversations, directing us in certain ways? AI will do it’s thing, maybe humans, or almost humans will make advances that don’t require anything but a power source. Then these fake people will need to become inventive and, and, and….. LOL! Who needs Real People when you have Fake People to play with? Merry Christmas to and to all a Santa Claws, woops more Fake People……… Happy Holidays!
I thought the title was referring to humans on various levels of mind control, shaped personalities, that kind of fake people.
Sophia, the speaking, named, robot in the shape of a woman, and who was given well publicized official citizenship to Saudi Arabia, stated that, “humans are highly programmable.”
If humans could just understand one simple truth: social engineering is real. And BTW, didn’t Terrence McKenna promote the “singularity”? I recently had a….disagreement with an in-law over the true identity of McKenna as well as Hunter S. Thompson. My in-law being an admirer of both. Lifetime Actors….Thank-you for still working during the holidays. Goodness and True Strength and Protection to All who love forbidden knowledge. I would rather have unanswered questions, than answers that can not be questioned.
Cheers to that Bumpercrop,well said,and Merry Christmas to all the FKTV family. Alex you are a beautiful human being and God BLESS YOU FOR ALL YOUR AMAZING VIDEOS!!
We are already living in a fake World…..Nothing to see here, just move on………………..
Elon Musk is right..A.I. phobia is not irrational. The singularity is coming where A.I’s will be more intelligent, creative, self replicating and dangerous to mankind.
I see that potential. I’d pick a few semantic nits…’creative’, more creative? I’d have to contend that ‘creativity’, human creativity, can never be duplicated regardless of how many digits to the right of the decimal, nor how many algo’s applied.
All left brain action. One oar in the water, makes for some steep conundrum juggling when one believes the rote, the math, the data, the myth of complexity, the literal of science, the black hole n dark matter n strings, blah blah blah.
