It usually revolves around drinking lots of coffee and soft drinks, eating loads of chips and candy, as well as working on the occasional masterpiece project like Zombie Hugs. At the end of the day,… Continue reading 2 + 2 with neural networks

Generating cartoon avatars with GANs

You might have heard of Deepfakes, which are images or videos where someone’s face is replaced by another person’s face. There are various techniques for creating Deepfakes, one of them being Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). A GAN is a type of neural network that can generate realistic data from random input data. When used for… Continue reading Generating cartoon avatars with GANs
