All of the faces you ask about were computer generated. The first reply thought so, so did I. We know what to look for, when it comes to computer generation of these things. Shadows, reflections, hair, light reflections on hair, pointed areas, skin tone near the rim of glasses (AI are really bad at faking people with glasses on, check that right angle skin tone change on one of the images, just below one of the lenses.)

AI uses blotch pattern texturing for skin, to simulate "human non-uniform pores" which makes them look closer than 90's era Playstation graphics, BUT AI is bad at distributing these blotch patterns in a way that don't seem "gridlike" as of today, anyway... In the first image, just look at the skin tone variation in the blotchy spots on the woman's skin. I don't usually see people that have horizontal lining and aliasing issues on their face, in real life.

Still, not quite there, Cyberdyne.

One ‘side’ lies and falsely accuses and openly encourages its supporters to do the same.

This technology is a godsend for the left. Without it, they’re done.

Maybe it's time to get Kodak out of mothballs, begin to use our film cameras again. And in case you thought it was only photos...

I was reading an article just a few days ago about the same program being asked to create photos of cats but for whatever reason the AI didn't have much luck at it...creating cats with more than four legs, heads way too small for the body, etc.

Some people, including author and founding executive editor of Wired magazine, Kevin Kelly, believe that this technology has caused the demise of photographic evidence.

When people talk about "photographic evidence" they usually talk about something that was never really considered as true evidence of any thing, a photo that is not an original.

Even with the old chemical process photos we are usually looking at a copy, and that copy may have been altered or be a copy of something that was not the original negative. Photo laboratories have been doing it since photography was invented, more than 150 years ago.

The only way a photo can be considered as true evidence is if it's something like a Polaroid photo, in which case we are looking at an original, or if what is presented as evidence is the original negative and it can be confirmed as not altered.

In this particular case, Nvidia is, as usual, just making publicity of their own products and technology.
