200 pictures for training an AI system&nbsp;&nbsp;

The described technique, called AvatarMe, represents the very first methodology that allows creating high-quality render-ready 3D busts from nothing but arbitrary images.

The researches deployed a training dataset that consists of 200 pictures of people’s faces that were acquired with the help of ‘state-of-the-art’ facial capture methods.

Those individuals whose photos were used in the experiment belong to different age groups and have different characteristics.&nbsp;&nbsp;

This data collection was necessary for training GANFIT, an <a href="https://u.today/meet-velas-when-artificial-intuition-boosts-blockchain-capabilities">AI model</a> at the core of the experiment that is used for inferring information about texture and shape from a single image.&nbsp;

<a href="https://u.today/artificial-intelligence-usurped-and-trapped-but-not-for-much-longer">card</a>

AvatarMe is not without flaws

AvatarMe was able to avoid artifacts even when trying different poses and occlusions. It was possible to realistically reconstruct portraits and black-and-white photographs.

However, it is worth noting that AvatarMe still shows poorer results with input phonographs of lower quality.&nbsp;

On top of that, the researches also failed to include certain ethnicities in the study to make the technique more universal.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

A group of researchers from Imperial College London has come up with a way to render 3D faces from a single picture with the help of artificial intelligence, VentureBeat reports.  

Their paper made its way to the ongoing CVPR conference, which is being held in a virtual format from June 14 to June 19.
