The captchas that REALLY annoy me are the ones where I have to identify the lions with their eyes open or something like that that isn't completely obvious.

Just let me proceed with my web thing please...

Google isn't relying solely on that torrent of data to drive a car, but they are using it to double-check their own custom AI software's behaviors.
Mind blown.
I just didn't think about it.
The older I get the more blown away I am by how many opportunities there are to make money by developing niche software.

Here are some recent attempts of mine to Star Wars Clone Wars-ify the main Star Trek captains.

Unfortunately, through this exercise I've learned first-hand the lesson of how these models have (hopefully unintentional) biases due to the many thousands of barely-tagged images sourced from all across the internet. Black men appear to be very poorly represented in the main SD model, and I've really struggled to make a Sisko who looks anything like the man himself. I've run through lots of different inputs, and I've discarded tons of ugly and weird and malformed outputs trying to make him look good. Picard, by contrast, was pretty much perfect with the first few tries.

Let this be a reminder to everyone! Your output is only as good as the input when it comes to these highly-trained systems, and that is especially true for the original data used for the training. The data in these recent models are fine for making faces if you only want very famous people, white men, or sexy ladies.

Representation comes slowly. These are terrific!
