  1. I wonder, is the FIASCO for the face of someone who does not exist lower or higher then the FIASCO in the Bible Code?

  2. When I clicked on the link, I got an image of a pretty woman with mismatched earrings. (Having read a bit about the technology, I knew to look for the error.) Now I wonder if girls are going to grow up thinking that mismatched earrings are pretty.

    I have been unable to prove that these people do not exist.

    I’ve been wondering how the idea of computer-generated pictures of faces that are indistinguishable from pictures of real faces fits with Lizzie’s OP from 2013 (how time flies) regarding whether CSI is detectable in images.

  4. Mung: Are you and J-Mac running a competition?

    Yes, try to make an OP with less comments then the average Mung one.

    Oh, I imagine the response would be something like ‘the CSI was sourced from the original source images that trained the system in the first place. No CSI was created.

    There’s no such thing as actual creativity here in the mortal realm for some it seems, be you human, dog or computer. That a computer can “look at” faces and the produce faces that have never existed does not mean the computer is creative. It just means the computer computes. Yet somehow, something is still doing that creating.

    Yet when an artists paints a face after looking at many faces, somehow that’s valid creativity just because it’s a human.

    If humans can create “CSI/FIASCO” then so can computers. I’ve been making this claim for years.

    Here it is again: I have a computer program that can create FIASCO. I will supply a copy of this program if you explain how you will test it.
