    Clever. But creepy and a bit worrying.

    Wow. If this sort of thing can be generalised, I can see huge potential. I'm blaming you if I get nightmares about shapeshifting AIs tormenting me over the internet.

    Creepy musak in that vid. Very black mirror:
    'The brave new world is here and we love it'.

    Remember a couple of years ago (pre trump?), when Apps were all the rage and the muzak promoting them was usually made with an accoustic (ethno) music instrument on a jingly-jang lovey-dovey tip*?

    A lot different to this creepy stuff that seems to cover the AI tech zeitgeist.

    Eta: iirc ska invita made a thread re tech musak...

    Not sure I understand enough about this.

    Is the initial, or original data for creating the 'styles' etc from information selected and input by humans?

    Why are all the faces apparently flawless?

    Yes. If I understand it correctly the source info is fed from a database populated by humans. The competing systems are also rewarded (?) / encouraged (?) towards results that satisfy a human adjudicator, and learn successful strategies in this manner. So what you're seeing is the result of many many iterations of refinement of a process.

    I can see this being useful in the short term for creating background characters and objects in films. In the long term... scary!

    What if we’re already AI, creating more AI.

    What if editor is AI and it won't be revealed until later episodes....but for now posts about AI are meant to ease the shock?

    Then someone's probably due a refund.

    Wookey Muppet is not a slur

    I think this, coupled with the facial animation they can do now, is really the beginning of something with mahoosive ramifications - I'll be back once I've worked out what they are. :hmm:

    On a similar note - this is a guy doing an Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonation. But morphing tech makes him not only impersonate the voice, but the face.

    The transitions are SO slick.
