Make Me a Zombie is a website where you upload a profile photo of yourself or someone else and their face becomes zombified.
Josh Brown Kramer (based in Nebraska) built this website, which uses Artificial Intelligence.
Specifically, he utilized a generative adversarial network, or GAN in order to take users’ faces and, in effect, make predictions as to what they’d look like as zombie ones.
The popular StyleGAN zombie generator is a GAN architecture extension open-sourced by Nvidia, that can generate impressively photorealistic images while enabling user control over image style.
Josh’s zombie dataset is a set of about 300 images of zombie Halloween masks and people in Zombie makeup. It comes mostly from Pinterest and Google, and was hand filtered to throw out non-zombies. These images are layered over the photo face.
