Are AI Faces ‘More Human’ Than Real Ones? See if You Can Tell the Difference

Face the facts.

AI-generated faces look more “real” than some humans, according to a new study — at least, when it comes to white people.

Published in the Psychological Science journal this week, researchers found that AI could reliably fool people into thinking that computer-generated faces look more real than a photograph.

“Remarkably, white AI faces can convincingly pass as more real than human faces – and people do not realize they are being fooled,” the team researchers from the University of Amsterdam said in their study findings. 

Researchers said that the issue with this kind of “hyper-realism” is that people are convinced that their judgment of what is real and what is not is airtight.
