Helpful tips from NIST on how to design anti-face recognition masks:
- Higher error rates in wide masks with high-coverage masks and black masks
- "A dark mask on light skin or a light mask on dark skin could cause overexposure problems"

Euclidean distance between the interpolative fanciness of OpenAI's DALL·E dream machines and the institutional dullness of yester-century's Columbia House/BMG compilations is approaching 0.0

Interesting because the same (seemingly) GAN generated faces also now available for free for any purpose here generated.photos/

For illustrative purposes IBM researchers used a GAN generated face in their Diversity in Faces paper, perhaps first ever GAN identity placeholder in research paper. Interestingly, they claim image is subject to license terms of algorithm author
