Must admit that last week, I skipped the trend where folks were aging their face with a Faceapp.

Well, how about this new cool FaceAPP?  This APP actually turns your Selfie into a Renaissance painting?  Well, what you would look like if painted in that period.

C/ has the goods.

The website uses AI to reproduce "artistic human portraits" in different styles. The researchers loaded tens of thousands of paintings from the Early Renaissance to contemporary art to help train the Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) models. AI Portrait Ars says GANs are a popular class of deep generative models.

Although there are security concerns,

The site says it has no other motives but to teach its users about art.

Do you believe?

They added,

"Your photos are sent to our servers to generate portraits. We won't use data from your photos for any other purpose and we'll immediately delete them," the site said in a privacy blurb.

I haven't been able to get into the site for an hour, and word is it has crashed from today's overuse.
