    Apparently there already is a "stock image" company that sells images of AI created (fake) people.

    The face at 1:11 looks like Kristen Stewart's face applied to a man's head.

    The nature of what constitutes fake, generated from constituent pieces, versus generated whole-cloth from scratch seems like an important distinction. Playing mix-and-match with facial features isn't exactly the same as a full deep-fake.

    I suppose I should also add, if they're just playing mix-and-match with facial features to attempt to modify non-free images enough to make them their own, they might be in for a shock if any photographers discover elements of their photos in this company's portfolio and attempt to take them to court over it. Copyright does allow sufficiently derivative work to be free from the original work's copyright, but the nature of what constitutes sufficent derivation is up for debate.

    These are 100 percent AI creations, not modified images, not deep fakes, not masive retouches.

    Haven't they always used fake people in ads?

    These would pair up well with the floating heads in the antique shop...

    (And most of those are really lousy quality... they ought to be good for all those cheesy google ads!)

    Oh great, so now photographers not only have to worry about outright theft of images, but now whether they've had pieces ripped off? Can you imagine the legal battles over what constitutes sufficient deviation in the AI composite? How do you even set a standard?

    Right, to the discerning eye. But to the general public, these and other deep fakes can be used to trick the general public.

    Very scary if you ask me.

    I didn't see anything in the video that says that these were the best quality available. Since it was prepared for a "news" piece, it might not have been seen as important. Besides that, remember that "popular' digital photography started at 640 x 480 (Apple QuickTime camera). If this is the best that can be done today, it won't take long to improve, if the market wants better.

    I'm still letting this sink in. It doesn't make me happy. . . .
