Can A.I. really show you what your kids will look like?

Its not a question I ponder on for long. But its fun to do with the kids... How does it work? AI uses a method called Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) to age baby pictures. It learns from lots of images showing how people age. There are two main parts to the AI: a generator and a discriminator. The generator makes older versions of baby pictures, and the discriminator tells if these new pictures look real or fake. With practice, the generator gets better at making realistic aged images. So, the result is pictures that look like a grown-up version of the baby, with details like changes in the face and skin.

Is it accurate? The accuracy of age-progressed images generated by AI can vary. While they can capture general trends in aging, such as changes in facial structure and skin texture, they may not always perfectly predict how an individual will look as they age. Factors like genetics, lifestyle, and environmental influences can all impact how a person ages. So, while AI-generated age progression can provide a plausible depiction, it may not be entirely accurate for every individual.

I think this is pretty good for Tiggy my 2 year old. What she may have looked like in the 1920's, 1960's and in the future. Loving it but not sure about he arm tatoo!
