You may have already heard of the website ThisPersonDoesNotExist.com which consists of Artificial Intelligence generated images (fake people). The goal for this platform is to show what AI can accomplish and to educate people on its advances. This platform has now become interactive where you can distinguish real from AI generated people at WhichFaceIsReal.com. Simply look at two images and try to differentiate the real from fake person. Why is this so important? It is important to be aware of such emerging technologies as Carl Bergstrom (one of the creators of WhichFaceIsReal.com) states, “when a new technology like this comes along, the most dangerous period is when the technology is out there but the public isn’t aware of it,” Bergstrom tells The Verge. By 2050, it is stated that artificial intelligence will be able to perform any intellectual task that a human can do. So, let’s uncover some facts about artificial intelligence.
Artificial Intelligence has progressed greatly and there is no sign of it slowing down. It is important to be aware of these progressions as it is likely that AI will soon be incorporated in all our everyday lives. Each of these examples is no longer a look into the future, they are the reality of present-day.
