More fun with fake faces. Here’s a breakdown from Eric Jang of Snapchat’s bizarre new filter.
Fun with Snapchat’s gender swapping filter
Snapchat’s new gender-bending filter is a source of endless fun and laughs at parties. The results are very pleasing to look at. As someone who is used to working with machine learning algorithms, it’s almost magical how robust this feature is.
I was so duly impressed that I signed up for Snapchat and fiddled around with it this morning to try and figure out what’s going on under the hood and how I might break it.
Eric takes it through its paces to learn a little more about how it’s generated. I hadn’t appreciated that it worked in real time like that.
Classic FM got in on the act, and has taken a few portraits of classical music composers through the filter, with varying results.
