Zuckerberg appears in a never-before-seen avatar in the images that have now gone popular on the internet. The visuals are not genuine, but were made using an AI programme called midjourney.
Have you seen photos of Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg prancing down a runway wearing a Louis Vuitton gown? Images of him donning fancy attire and boldly strolling the ramp have gone viral on the internet. Some are asking if he is changing jobs after sacking hundreds of Meta employees. Now, before you get too excited, keep in mind that the images are not genuine, but rather AI-generated using the Midjourney image generator.
Zuckerberg appears in a never-before-seen avatar in the images that have now gone popular on the internet. On the runway, he can be seen wearing a bright yellow attire. In another photo, he is sporting a blingy pink attire allegedly from Louis Vuitton. The major catch is that Zuckeberg is not considering a modelling career. All of the photos that have taken over the internet have been created by AI. They are, however, so lifelike that it would be impossible to tell them apart from actual images. AI techniques like Dall-E sometimes miss face emotions, but Midjourney has nailed it in every aspect. The face does not appear dismembered, and Zuckerberg can be seen wearing the beautiful expression that models frequently wear.
Linus, a Twitter user who is an AI developer, revealed the AI-generated photographs of Zuckerberg. Another user, Czarek Michalski, utilised the same instruction to make photos of Elon Musk walking the runway in blingy attire. It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time frighteningly genuine photographs of notable personalities have gone popular on social media. Prior to Zuckerberg, the authors let their imaginations run wild, envisioning former US President Donald Trump in peril and the Pope prancing around in an expensive puffy jacket. Such posts looked to be so genuine that the internet couldn’t stop talking about them. Some of those who saw the picture prepared for Trump, in which he is depicted being detained by police, were relieved that it was finally occurring, while others were extremely upset.
Midjourney, the AI programme used to make these lifelike visuals, has also ceased giving free trials. The corporation, however, has not highlighted these photographs as the basis for the recall of free trails because realistic images can only be made using Midjourney version 5, which is only available to premium users.
