Recently we launched our AI Anonymizer, an online tool that creates your synthetic look-alike and helps protect identity online. Twitter, known as a social media platform greedy for memes and ironization, gladly grabbed a new toy and started testing it ​​with might and main.

How It Started

We created Anonymizer to showcase what AI can do to help people protect their biometrics in the ‘dangerous’ online world. But it quickly turned out that privacy protection is not the top priority concern for people on Twitter. Twitter residents are extremely curious by nature. So they uploaded different photos, asked why Anonymizer gives back odd results, wondered how it works, played with it, and made some pretty good jokes.

So, here is the tour of what we’ve discovered so far.

A Younger Version of Yourself and Family Motifs

One of the hot topics is being treated like a little kid. Again!

There can be two possible explanations here:

  • AI sees a person’s inner child shining through the guise of an adult.
  • It might result from a selfie shot at a close distance or/and unusual head angle.

Honestly speaking, my brain’s right hemisphere likes the first one while the left hemisphere and the whole ML team would prefer the second one.

There is another reason for fun as well: sometimes you get the bunch of results that Anonymizer users find looking like a sort of their family.

Fun Must Go On

Just look at Twitter users having their best time with not only their own personalities.

Or some avatars generated by Anonymizer reminded users of someone famous.

Inner Beauty Revealer Mode

“Looks like me when I was 20”, “Got a whole bunch of my younger siblings,” “Ah, good ol’ days” – people report that the results they get often remind them of their younger selves or some distant relatives they might have.

Many of the users lament that the results they get are, in their personal opinion, much more attractive than they actually are.

Inner Beaty Revealer – that’s what we called the feature. We unironically claim that one of Anonymizer’s superpowers is the ability to see your hidden light. Think you can conceal your inner beauty from AI? Nah, ah, no way. It shines too bright.

New Jobs, New You

After analyzing your appearance and matching it with the images accumulated in datasets, AI Anonymizer can offer you a new personality. It might be an echo from your past incarnations, or the tool may reveal one of your unfulfilled career paths.

Also, some approached the tool with a sort of business-like mood.

Artifacts and Creepy Vibes

Besides generating your synthetic look-alikes, AI Anonymizer also generates a great deal of weird stuff. Since the system is still learning, there is a number of things it does not readout right.

For example, it doesn’t understand how hats work. To generate hats properly, AI must see a lot of them. And there are sooo many different hats that probably it’s much easier to generate faces than hats!

Sometimes it doesn’t understand glasses, too…

Sometimes AI gets too creative and thinks out things that mustn’t exist.

Meme Stuff

Quite predictably, AI Anonymizer became a new source of memes. You can upload any meme character and give it a new spin.

Thank You, Twitter People!

Seriously, guys, thank you all who posted on Twitter all the cases! And especially to those of you who posted images that were very close to your real photos and used them as avatars. It means a world to us to know that it’s working in a way we meant it to be.
