This Company is Giving Away 100,000 AI-Generated Portraits for Free

A company called Icons8 has just released “a massive free resource of 100k faces generated from scratch” using an AI algorithm trained on tens of thousands of real-life portraits. The resulting headshots can be used by anybody, royalty free, without worrying about model releases or other stock photography issues, since a fake person can’t exactly sue you.

The project was revealed on Product Hunt, where Icons8 showed off “the technology we are building to create media on-demand” by giving away 100,000 AI-generated faces royalty free through the Generated.Photos website. All you need to do is give credit by linking back to the site.

Here’s a quick introduction to the broader technology, which will eventually allow interested users to generate a headshot on-demand by adjusting various parameters like ethnicity, gender, age and mood:
