The video documents one of the experiments by Quasimodo (Mario Klingemann) that employ algorithms of Artificial Intelligence, reknown with the acronym of GANs [Generative adversarial Networks]. in this particular case, they were used to generate the profile of the French singer Françoise Hardy from a set of biometric face markers using several of her music video clips as the training data. Mixed in her feature are also face markers from Kellyanne Conways infamous “alternative facts” interview. This is just a little taste of potentials and dangers of Artificial Intelligence.
