FaceApp: A Funny Photo-Editing App

Facebook

 

Photography is a biggest and well-known profession. Capturing right scenes at the right time makes it easy to learn but difficult to master. Photo-editing on another hand which was once an auxiliary stage to Photography now turned to be a whole different profession.

Photo-editing is now one of the most sought after fields which include changing the entire image into something new, adding some extra layers, giving the image a new look with filters and the list goes on.

Now photo-editing can be a lot more fun too and even can be tried by amateurs. There are a lot of apps waiting in the store that can warp your portraits, add stickers, funny filters and so on. But it will be a lot more fun if you try FaceApp.

 

FaceApp

Developed by Wireless Lab OOO, FaceApp: Neural Face Transformations is an AI-powered and neural network using funny photo-editing app. The usage of this app is very simple. Users upload a portrait and apply series of filters to laugh at.

The app lets you do the following

Hotness Filter

This makes you look more beautiful and hot thanks to the neural network technology that has a separate code carefully written.

Add a Smile

Have a photo where you look angry and you want to make it pleasant? This option will help you to add a smile to your portrait.

Gender Swap

Let things take a funny turn while you change your gender with this option. Sometimes, we have to look at things from another perspective.

Age Transitions

Make yourself look younger or older using this option. I think it’s time to meet your future self.

The company took nearly 8 months to develop the app’s first version using various libraries to get the results that you see right now. Regarding monetization of the app, the company wants to introduce sponsored filters and hope they will work out.

 

FaceApp Being Racist?

Released just recently, the app is already facing major controversy. The hotness filter is facing some major resistance due to the process it follows to make people look hotter. According to multiple users, the app just makes the people’s skin whiter which is a pretty racist move.

Losing the original skin color and making it brighter is not the way to becoming hot is what many are believing. This made the company respond and it apologized for building a racist AI. They also replaced the “hotness” filter to “spark” and are already working to change the code.

Face app bias

 

Apologizing to this, FaceApp’s founder and CEO Yaroslav Goncharov told Techcrunch that “We are deeply sorry for this unquestionably serious issue. It is an unfortunate side-effect of the underlying neural network caused by the training set bias, not intended behavior. To mitigate the issue, we have renamed the effect to exclude any positive connotation associated with it. We are also working on the complete fix that should arrive soon.

There is the surge in the app popularity due to this and let us hope FaceApp rectifies this soon to ease up the tension among people. Until then, you can try the other features and have some fun.
